« If you are looking for an experienced teacher/tutor, I recommend Phil! At any lesson he finds the way to attract my full attention and he encourages me to talk more and more. His lessons are never boring, he always prepared different topics for me, focusing on those more interesting for me. In the beginning I was not really motivated but, thanks to him and to our conversations, my interest in learning english grew bigger and so did the confidence in myself. I've improved my speaking and listening skills a lot. Now I can have a real conversation!!! For all these reasons, I'm grateful to my amazing tutor and friend! »

9 years of experience teaching online conversational English lessons to adult learners

Methodology

My niche is teaching conversational English, as I feel that this is the most entertaining and natural way for students to learn the language. I allow the student to direct the learning by deciding the topics that we will discuss for each lesson.

The first lesson is FREE! I use this lesson to analyze the student’s English-speaking ability, and to determine how to approach the future lessons. Students receive a corrections sheet at the end of every lesson, which shows the mistakes they made and the corrections to those mistakes.

Background

I am a full-time Technical Writer for a pharmaceutical company in Toronto. I completed my bachelor's degree in Psychology in 2015. I started an online conversational English program called Convo Culture in 2016 to help students improve their conversational English skills!

I have been a student of Phil's for over 2 years, and I think his teaching methods and personality are incredible! My English and confidence has improved so much with his help, and I recommend him to anyone I know that needs help to improve their English.
