HI. I´m Peter. I´m a native English speaker from England, currently living in South America. I have a degree in Music and a Post Graduate Diploma in Music Therapy. I currently hold a TEFL 120 hours certificate to teach English.
I have around 1 year+ English teaching experience as well as prior involvement both as a piano teacher and as an instructor in a day service.
Here, on Verbling I am looking to teach from intermediate to advanced levels. My background is in music (classical), Health and Social Care and business. If you are aiming to study or work in any of these specific areas then I´d be happy to help. Otherwise I can help any students wishing to improve their speaking fluency as well as grammar with particular attention to pronunciation and listening skills. I am especially interested in helping students with their pronunciation. It´s one of the most neglected (but very important) aspects of learning the English language. I have mainly worked with Brazilian (Portugese), South East Asian and Saudi Arabian students. But in reality I´ve tutored many more nationalities. I speak Spanish to a lower intermediate level, so this can be especially useful for any prospective Spanish speaking students.
I am a patient and sympathetic person and would like to make lessons fun and engaging but also thorough and detailed. I can go at a pace which suits you best.
