« Perfect! I really enjoyed having classes with Sean. He was very helpful and knowledgable. After the first class, he figured out what I need for my English and then he focused on my needs. Especially the assignments that he gave me were really helpful to improve my English. He has rich English exercise sources for you. Thank you for your help and time, dear Sean! »

Professional English teacher based in Toronto, Canada, with 15 years of teaching experience. I specialize in IELTS preparation, pronunciation, conversation practice, and CELPIP.

Methodology

As someone who has studied other languages and lived in different countries, I know how difficult and frustrating it can be to find the right teacher to help you learn to speak a new language. As your teacher, my goal is to transform you into a confident and powerful English speaker. So whether you need to get a better IELTS score, prepare for an upcoming job interview, or improve your overall English speaking and pronunciation skills, I know how to get the results you need. And by the way, all your lessons will take place online, which can be an incredibly convenient and effective way to master the English language. Looking forward to hearing from you! Thanks, Sean

Background

I specialize in advanced conversation practice, vocabulary building, pronunciation, accent reduction, CELPIP, Business English, IELTS, and job interview preparation. I love meeting new people from all over the world, and my goal is to help you become a more powerful and confident English speaker. So if this is your goal too, let's start working together!

Super prof. Sean a vite identifié et compris les points sur lesquels il fallait se concentrer.
J'ai pris contact avec Sean lors d'un séjour au Canada où j'avais besoin de vite améliorer mon anglais. Sean m'avait suggèré des methodes pour améliorer la compréhension orale et nous avions beaucoup travaillé la prononciation pendant les cours.
Aussi, nous avions travaillé ensemble sur des présentations pour des réunions et il m'avait préparer à passer des entretiens.
Un grand merci à Sean

Teacher Sean is a great person and teacher. He tailors his teaching accordingly at what I need and what I want to learn. I've been taking classes with him for a while, and people around me have told me that my English has improved a lot since I started my lessons.
Additionally, Sean is an interesting person and knows about a lot of topics so I really enjoy our lessons and conversations.
I still need to learn a lot in order to improve my English, and definitely, he is the best person to learn from.
Thank you, teacher!!!!!
