"TO SPEAK ANOTHER LANGUAGE IS TO POSSESS ANOTHER SOUL" -- Charlemagne Let me help you improve your English. I am a native English speaker with a Master's Degree in English, a Bachelor of Science degree and a CELTA teaching qualification. I have been teaching for four years. As a copy-editor, I have been helping people improve their writing skills for over ten years (so I can edit letters, presentations, reports etc.). I teach General English or Business English as well as exam preparation: Cambridge exams B1, B2, C1 Advanced, C2 Proficiency, BEC, TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS, OET. Children's courses also available. We can have fun or work hard using the best English teaching resources on the planet. 🎯Rich teaching resources for practice in: speaking, reading, listening, writing 🗓️ Please let me know if you wish to book a lesson outside the times indicated 🖥️ Please provide minimum information about yourself BEFORE we meet: test your current level of English: https://www.cambridgeenglish.org/test-your-english/general-english/ and send me the results (A1/2 B1/2 C1/2 ... (not the mark out of 25)) so that we can start from the appropriate level straightaway. 🗣️We CAN meet in the free session for a chat about your learning needs/my teaching methods but I do not give free lessons. 🗓️ NB: If you are writing a test like IELTS or TOEFL 'in a month or two' to enter a university and you need to obtain a more than a minimum score, then you need to already be at level B2 / Upper Intermediate to start preparing.

Sonia MarVel
Mary is a brilliant teacher. She is always ready to teach, she is fun and well prepared. At first, I was a bit skeptical about hiring someone online, but trust me, you won't regret it. I will always be grateful to Mary for supporting me, guiding me, and giving me the confidence I needed to get the points I needed for the TOEFL. Honestly, I miss working with Mary. Thank you, Mary!!! You are amazing!!!!
IRENE
I would highly recommend Mary to anyone. Her classes are always well prepared and structured. She's been very professional and polite and I felt very comfortable talking with her. She explains very well and adapts to the level and needs. I feel that I'm making progress with my English level. I'm looking forward to our next class.

After six lessons I would warmly recommend Mary, a kind person as well as a patient and attentive teacher. I'm still far from my goal but, thanks to his help, I'm able to express myself in English again without fear of being judged by others.
