Working with us

Hello and welcome;

learnEnglishIt’s great that you want to work with us to improve your English speaking ability. Before starting, you need to talk with me so that we can determine your level and whether we can actually work together. Your English level should be higher than a beginner’s level. You should have a basic understanding of grammar and sentence structure, I do not provide services at the beginner’s level.

You should use the email address below to arrange a conversation with me. Please provide at least 3 times when you are available to talk, as I may not be available due to other commitments. You should plan for at least one-half hour but not more than 1 hour for our initial conversation.

To schedule a 30-minute, no charge, no obligation meeting with me, send an email to: with the subject line: “I am interested in practicing English with you“.

We can talk using Skype, QQ or Zoom. For our sessions, if we work together, a video connection is preferred.

Once we have agreed to work together, I will send you a link where you can fill out some information for me which will be kept in strictest confidence. I will also send you a link to the payment page. Before we start, all fees must be paid in full.

You can pay using Paypal, your credit card through Paypal or, if this is not possible, we can arrange a money transfer through the banks.

All paid for sessions must be completed within 30 to 60 days from the date of payment unless we agree to extend the end date.

How we will work together

Our sessions will be 1 hour in length and will be scheduled for our convenience.

During the sessions we will talk about various subjects. We can both suggest discussion topics of interest based on the news, work, school or life. No topic will be forbidden and all views and opinions will be our own. If you want, we can predetermine the topic so that we can prepare for the next session. All conversations will be recorded

I will give you suggestions for improving your spoken English and I will also provide feedback on your ability throughout our sessions and the session’s audio recording. I will correct you as required.

Session cancellations

I will wait for 10 minutes past the session start time before cancelling the session. The cancelled session will be considered completed and will not be made up later. It is up to you to be on time.

If after we start working together, you wish to cancel a session, you will need to let me know at least 24 hours in advance otherwise I will consider the missed session as being one of your scheduled sessions. You will not be refunded for these sessions. If you want to cancel any remaining sessions for a refund, you must let me know in writing, by email at least 24 hours before the session start. You will be refunded only for the remaining sessions that you contracted for.

Payment options, fees and refund policy
