Sobre mim

Book a trial lesson and let me help you achieve your goals!
If I don't have time available when you need it, send me a message and I will try to re-arrange something for you.

Hi Verbling students!
My name is Alistair and I am a CELTA-qualified teacher from the UK with 9 years experience teaching in different countries, as well as online. I have taught in Thailand, Japan, Costa Rica, Brazil, the UK, and the USA. I have been lucky enough to teach students from many other countries, backgrounds and levels.

My teaching philosophy has always been to provide a place where students are able to try new things and have fun at the same time, and
I have some great techniques for teaching grammar and vocabulary!
I also have my own books and lots of materials, as well as online games and vocabulary learning tools that I can share with you.

These are some of the kinds of classes available:

Test Preparation - FCE/CAE, IELTS, TOEFL

Business English - professional emails, phone language, negotiating, marketing, supply chain management, Information Technology

Focused Grammar Lessons - do you need to know your Present Perfect from your Future Continuous? Very soon you will be using the right grammar in the right situations

Vocabulary Building - I will use the subjects you are interested in and help you become fluent in talking about them by generating discussion and slowly adding more and more vocabulary, collocations and phrases

Writing - do you need to improve your writing for university, tests, work or just in general? I will provide you with ideas, templates and editing to make your writing really stand out

Conversation classes - Improve your speaking skills with something that is often forgotten: error correction - not repeating your mistakes really helps you find that balance between fluency and accuracy

Get in touch with me to arrange a 1-on-1 class and we can make a plan for what you need the most help with.
