Tailored Intensive English Coaching

Your perfect English course: Let me create your perfect English course, personalised according to your own needs. Whether you want to improve your business English for meetings and communications with colleagues or you are a teacher who needs to refresh your English for teaching or you simply want to feel confident when you listen to and speak English, this is your solution.

Increase your confidence: My method is a fantastic way to rapidly increase your English listening and speaking skills.

Enrich your vocabulary: We focus on what is relevant to you and your business, your workplace and your interests. You will speak English like an English person, not just translating from your own language.

Improve your pronunciation: I will show you what to do with your mouth, tongue, breath and teeth to create the sounds of English. You can practise without fear of embarrassment as you are the only student in the class.

Speak to people: While you explore Bristol or go shopping, visit the city, ask for directions or help, have conversations with English friends and make simple telephone calls to buy tickets or reserve a table in a restaurant.

The classes were excellent and personalised. This allows you to work on your weaknesses and improve your strengths. One very important point is the food – it’s fantastic!

Course Overview: The standard package offers a 15-hour course over two weeks, with flexibility for shorter or longer durations. Each week consists of three hours of personalised one-to-one lessons Monday to Friday mornings. Daily lunches and dinners include conversation and correction, totalling around six hours of contact time on weekdays. Weekends feature excursions and meals, adding up to an additional eight hours of contact time. In total, you receive 68 hours of English lessons and coaching, equivalent to more than a YEAR of weekly one-hour classes.

Daily Routine: After the morning session, you have time for self-study while I prepare lunch. During lunch, we discuss your afternoon plans, including a suggested mini-challenge, like speaking to three people while you explore Bristol. You will have some homework to do. You can do this in a café and listen to English conversations.

Evening Activities & Excursions: Evenings consist of a delicious homemade dinner with conversation and gentle correction. This means you will have around six hours of English speaking practice per week day. The curriculum integrates your personalised diary, business emails, telephone conversations, video meetings, newspapers, business publications, radio and television programmes, mock interviews or presentations, and help with your CV and/or LinkedIn profile. Additionally, we have a weekly excursion, usually on Saturday, such as visiting Bath, exploring Bristol, attending a live jazz concert, or enjoying a theatre show. The package includes all accommodation, tuition, and meals.
