I provide coaching and conversation practice for English learners and improvers around the world.

“Ian uses a great mix of methods. We practice everyday conversations, talk about topic-specific texts, use podcasts and special practice sheets to support the online lessons. Ian is really good to at using digital media to deliver the online lessons. I really look forward to my English lessons because learning with Ian is fun. Even the grammar.  You can see an improvement in a short time.”

He provided a professional, personalised service which helped our employees improve their English communication skills.
