Hello everyone, my name's Jake and I have been a TEFL English teacher for the past 2 years. I teach all ages and abilities. My main goal to is to help you improve your confidence and fluency speaking in English. I am from Leicester, which is in the centre of England. I love hiking, playing football, going to the gym, and eating pinchos (tapas in the north of Spain) with friends.
I have a very informal relaxed teaching style. I like all my students to feel comfortable speaking with me and they all benefit from this as they gain a lot of confidence to express themselves to me. I like to have discussions about everything and anything with my students and I always introduce new vocabulary related to the chosen topic. I make notes during lessons about what the student has done well and what they need to improve. I also keep a note of new phrases/vocabulary/difficulties that the student has had. This is used in future discussions as a reference for both me and the student.
I love to teach phrasal verbs and I swear by them, they are extremely important in the English spoken language, as they're used all the time - I used one in this sentence! ;)
También puedo hablar español, entonces si eres de España o Latinoamérica puedes mejorar tu inglés más rápido conmigo :)
