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 a new language. Looking forward to hearing from you! Thanks, Sean

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!
Mr. Sean was my teacher at SuperProf, he is a person with great teaching ability and a remarkable ability to inspire people around him. He's the kind of person who makes a difference in any situation. I recommend your English classes to anyone who wants to learn and go deep into the culture...
I was very lucky to have Sean being my English teacher for two months. He is a knowledgeable teacher and uses various kinds of techniques to help me improve my English pronunciation. I do see a huge improvement over two months. My mother language is Mandarin. I was actually surprised that Sean understands every challenge that a Mandarin speaker might face when learning English. If you wish to speak like a native English speaker, I would recommend Sean! Sean 是一位非常有耐心且仔細的英文老師。 雖然只和他學習了兩個月，但是我能感覺到我的英語發音有很明顯的提高。和他學習英文的過程中也會學到很多老外慣用的句式和文化。 和他交談時我瞭解到他教過許多中國學生。對於想學習英文的朋友來説，Sean會是一位非常好的外教老師。
Sean’s professional in teaching English. He is very organized and helpful . He was able to recognize my weakness and strength during the first class and I have improved since then with his help. I highly recommend Sean as your English teacher.
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
Sean is an excellent teacher! He is very supportive and always provide valuable help during his classes. He has good teaching skills, able to make you more comfortable and confident speaking English. I recommend him very highly.
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!!!!!
