English lessons for children

Children are natural language learners. I am enthusiastic and energetic with the children I teach, because I know that if they are excited about language learning, they pick it up even faster.

Intensive English

If you are interested in intensive English lessons, I am available to meet as often as you like. Furthermore, I can help you obtain English language materials to help you immerse yourself in the English language.

English for beginners

If you are a beginner, I can help develop a specialized lesson plan to help develop your English language skills to suit your goals.

Conversational English

If you are interested in improving your conversational English, then I can help you develop the skills you need to hold a conversation in English. I currently teach 1-to-1 conversational English classes to students from all over the world, including Egypt, Peru, and Mexico.

English for traveling

I love traveling and know how useful English can be when traveling around the world. Whether you are interested in traveling to an English speaking country or want to learn it as a lingua franca, I can help you work on the vocabulary and grammar that you'd need in your travels.

Working with English people

If you want to improve your English language skills in the workplace, I can help you develop your proficiency, so that you can have stress free and meaningful interactions in the workplace.

Having English friends

Do you want to just improve your English so you can talk with your English friends about tv shows, day to day life, or whatever else? I can help you improve your fluency based on your interests.

Reading and writing English

If you want to improve your reading and writing skills, I can help develop specialized lesson plans to help you. We can take advantage of the wide variety of English language media to improve your reading comprehension and your writing abilities.

Understanding English movies

If you are interested in improving your listening comprehension so that you can watch English language movies, I can help you work on these skills.

English lifestyle and culture

I'm currently a cultural advisor at an English language institute and would be happy to share my knowledge with you. Whether you plan to travel to an English speaking country or you are just interested in learning about culture and lifestyle in English language countries, I can help create lesson plans to teach you about life in the English speaking world.

About Tutor

Hey, everybody! My name is Blake I'm an English teacher from the USA. I've lived all over the US, but I am originally from Reno, Nevada. I went to school for anthropology, linguistics, and secondary English education. I love traveling and am currently teaching English in Peru.

Experience

I have experience as a conversation coach, TOEFL prep coach, and as a basic English tutor. Students I currently teach range from beginners to advanced intermediate.

Teaching Approach

I am a strong believer in the conversational approach to teaching English. I believe that learning the grammar of the language is important to learning a language. However, I think that too many students know grammar rules, but can't have a fluent conversation. Therefore, I make sure that my students' lessons focus on conversation, as well as grammar.
