What are lessons like with English Pete?


Our English lessons can be however you like and in any style, it’s completely up to you. They can be serious, fun, formal, informal, role-plays, etc. They can be prepared in advance or decided at the start of each lesson.

Sometimes, students have a specific goal (preparing for job interviews in English, improving their English CV, practising English presentations, etc.) and sometimes we simply have general conversations about travel, work, daily life, etc. where the focus is on English vocabulary and correcting errors. As always, the subject is completely up to you.




Do you give lessons to students with all levels of English?


Yes. I teach all English levels:

- English for beginners – A1

- Pre-intermediate English – A2

- Intermediate English – B1

- Upper intermediate English – B2

- Advanced English – C1, C2




What teaching style do you have?


My teaching style depends on my student. If my student is a beginner I will speak relatively slowly and use simpler English that’s easier to understand. If my student is a professional with a higher level of English I will speak more quickly and use more business English. If the lesson is grammar based, the lesson will generally feel like we’re in an English classroom. If the lesson is to learn travel English, the lesson will have more of a holiday feel. So, as you can see, it all depends on the student and their objectives.




What kind of English lessons could I have?


You can have any lessons you need.

Here are examples of lessons I’ve already given:

English for business

English for conversations

English for children

English for job interviews

English for IT

English for marketing

English for meetings

English for students

English for presentations

English for CVs

English for conference calls

English for travel

English for beginners

The above are just a few examples, so if you need something else just let me know and I will be able to help you.




What materials do you use?


When appropriate, I use my own teaching materials and lessons that I have created during my time as an English teacher. If I don’t already have the materials I need, I produce them before each lesson. I find a lot of materials online and from my text books which I adapt to fit each English student’s needs. Also, if we would like additional materials during lessons, 99% of what we need is available on the internet at the touch of a button.




Are you qualified?


Yes. I took the world-renowned CELTA qualification from Cambridge to teach English as a foreign language. Also, I am a native English speaker with a lot of experience teaching English as a second language. Additionally, I have many years’ business experience in London, I have travelled extensively and I have lived in different countries. All of this has given me a wealth of knowledge and experience to be able to teach on a variety of subjects.




Do you speak French?


Yes. Well, I try :) I have been living in Nice, France since 2013 and I have been learning this beautiful language since I arrived. So, even though I try to ensure that 100% of our lessons are in English, I can sometimes use French to help my French speaking students understand. The great thing about learning French is that it makes me a language learner too – so I know first-hand the problems that language learners have and how to solve them.




Can I choose which day I have my English Lessons?


Yes. You can choose to have lessons on any day, including weekends and bank holidays.




How can I change or cancel my booked lessons?


This can very easily be done online via the website

  • Click here and click on 'Login'
  • Click on your account (Hello ‘your name’)
  • Select the lesson you would like to delete or reschedule
  • Delete or reschedule the lesson as necessary
  • You will not receive confirmation when you reschedule or cancel lessons but you will be able to see the changes on your account page (by clicking Hello ‘your name’).




What is your cancellation policy?


Cancellations are possible up to an hour before the lesson, without charge. If less than an hour's notice is given (or you do not attend), I won’t have enough time to find another student and the lesson will unfortunately be lost.




How long is one lesson?


A standard lesson is 1 hour but you can have longer lessons if you prefer, as you can book as many lessons as you like in a row. For example, if you would like a 3 hour lesson starting at 1pm, you can book a lesson at 1pm, another lesson at 2pm and another at 3pm.




Do you give private English lessons and also English classes for groups?


Yes, I give both types of lesson.

I have many private students who prefer to study with me on their own so that we can concentrate on their specific needs.

I also have students who prefer studying in groups, which is a great way to have cheap English lessons. Basically, it doesn’t matter how big the group is, the price I charge is the same because I charge for how many hours I work, not for how many students there are in the lesson. For example, have your lesson with a friend and only pay 50% each. Have a lesson with 4 other friends and only pay 20% each. Cheap English lessons!




Which age groups do you teach?


I teach English to all age groups, including:

- English for infants

- English for children

- English for pre-teens

- English for teenagers

- English for young adults

- English for adults

- English for senior citizens




Do you offer lessons for children?


Yes, definitely - the earlier people start learning English the better. For me, teaching children English is very rewarding. I’ve helped lots of children with things like their English homework and even their travel English, so that they can play with other children on holiday.

Also, it doesn’t matter how many children you have, you will only pay the price for 1 lesson each time (because I charge for how many hours I work, not for how many students there are in the lesson). Lessons are always fun and the children always look forward to the next one, as do I :)




Which online video platform / program will we use?


We normally use Skype, but if that’s a problem, we can also use Google Hangouts. Thanks to this technology, with just a computer, tablet or smartphone and an internet connection you can have lessons with me from anywhere in the world.




Can I try an English lesson for free?


Yes, no problem. We can meet on Skype, or I can call you by telephone before you decide whether or not to buy lessons. We will discuss your requirements, I will answer any questions you have and I will help you with vocabulary / give you corrections at the same time.

Book your free lesson, here




I have a 10 lesson package, but will not be able to use it. Can I get a refund?


Yes, no problem. Please just be aware that the English lessons you’ve already had will be charged at the full price, as the discount you received only applies if you have all 10 lessons.




Does my teacher give me homework?


This is completely up to you. Some students have the time to do English homework, some don’t. Sometimes I suggest that a student does some English homework if there are any particular problems with their English but it is the student’s choice if they do it or not. If a student would like homework, I will always give them something appropriate to their level, their needs and / or their objectives.




My children do not have any English lessons at school but I would like them to learn English while they are still young. Can you give private lessons at my home?


Fantastic! The earlier children start learning English the better :) I can give English lessons on any day of the week, including weekends. There is no extra charge for lessons at the weekend AND you will only pay the price for 1 lesson each time, no matter how many children you have :) You can book lessons here or you can contact me for more information here.

Do you give private English lessons and also English classes for groups?


Yes, I give both types of lesson.

I have many private students who prefer to study with me on their own so that we can concentrate on their specific needs.

I also have students who prefer studying in groups, which is a great way to have cheap English lessons. Basically, it doesn’t matter how big the group is, the price I charge is the same because I charge for how many hours I work, not for how many students there are in the lesson. For example, have your lesson with a friend and only pay 50% each. Have a lesson with 4 other friends and only pay 20% each. Cheap English lessons!




Which age groups do you teach?


I teach English to all age groups, including:

- English for infants

- English for children

- English for pre-teens

- English for teenagers

- English for young adults

- English for adults

- English for senior citizens




Do you offer lessons for children?


Yes, definitely - the earlier people start learning English the better. For me, teaching children English is very rewarding. I’ve helped lots of children with things like their English homework and even their travel English, so that they can play with other children on holiday.

Also, it doesn’t matter how many children you have, you will only pay the price for 1 lesson each time (because I charge for how many hours I work, not for how many students there are in the lesson). Lessons are always fun and the children always look forward to the next one, as do I :)




Which online video platform / program will we use?


We normally use Skype, but if that’s a problem, we can also use Google Hangouts. Thanks to this technology, with just a computer, tablet or smartphone and an internet connection you can have lessons with me from anywhere in the world.




Can I try an English lesson for free?


Yes, no problem. We can meet on Skype, or I can call you by telephone before you decide whether or not to buy lessons. We will discuss your requirements, I will answer any questions you have and I will help you with vocabulary / give you corrections at the same time.

Does my teacher give me homework?


This is completely up to you. Some students have the time to do English homework, some don’t. Sometimes I suggest that a student does some English homework if there are any particular problems with their English but it is the student’s choice if they do it or not. If a student would like homework, I will always give them something appropriate to their level, their needs and / or their objectives.





The Teacher

Are you qualified?


Yes. I took the world-renowned CELTA qualification from Cambridge to teach English as a foreign language. Also, I am a native English speaker with a lot of experience teaching English as a second language. Additionally, I have many years’ business experience in London, I have travelled extensively and I have lived in different countries. All of this has given me a wealth of knowledge and experience to be able to teach on a variety of subjects.




Do you speak French?


Yes. Well, I try :) I have been living in Nice, France since 2013 and I have been learning this beautiful language since I arrived. So, even though I try to ensure that 100% of our lessons are in English, I can sometimes use French to help my French speaking students understand. The great thing about learning French is that it makes me a language learner too – so I know first-hand the problems that language learners have and how to solve them.





Refunds

What is your cancellation policy?


Cancellations are possible up to an hour before the lesson, without charge. If less than an hour's notice is given (or you do not attend), I won’t have enough time to find another student and the lesson will unfortunately be lost.




How can I change or cancel my booked lessons?


This can very easily be done online via the website

  • Click here and click on 'Login'
  • Click on your account (Hello ‘your name’)
  • Select the lesson you would like to delete or reschedule
  • Delete or reschedule the lesson as necessary
  • You will not receive confirmation when you reschedule or cancel lessons but you will be able to see the changes on your account page (by clicking Hello ‘your name’).




I have a 10 lesson package, but will not be able to use it. Can I get a refund?


Yes, no problem. Please just be aware that the English lessons you’ve already had will be charged at the full price, as the discount you received only applies if you have all 10 lessons.
