Hello, my name’s Jonathan, nice to meet you. I’ve been teaching English for 3.5 years now and am excited to help you achieve your goals when learning English. Use this site to improve your English ability and if you need any further guidance then get in contact to book a 1-to-1 lesson.

About me

I am a native English speaker and have taught in China as well as the UK. I have experience teaching beginner, intermediate and advanced students, in business situations and social as well as being TEFL-certified.

Each lesson is tailored specifically to each student and the priority of lessons is on achieving student’s goals.

As well as teaching, I am studying Japanese and Chinese (Mandarin) for personal enjoyment.

For teachers

Feel free to use the exercises and resources on this website for your lessons, free of charge. All I ask is that you link the student directly to the pages and don’t pretend they are your creation 😉
