The primary purpose of this gig is to enable you to develop a British accent!
I have lived many years in the university city of Oxford, where I studied my 'O' levels and 'A' levels. I gained grade 'A's in English language and literature.
I can help you with your spoken English. If you wish to lose your foreign accent - I can help you develop a British accent and correct pronunciation of difficult words.
I will introduce you to local cultural phrases and expressions that you won't find in a textbook. Build your confidence and improve your interview skills.
I am also able to guide you on regional differences, for example, how the Scottish accent differs from the Irish, Welsh and English. Even within England there are many variations between regions in the north, south east and south west. I will guide you and help you achieve the specific accent you are looking for. If you want to speak like a presenter on the BBC news service, I can help you with that too!
I will give you resources and exercises so you can practice after our session!
Gig is 60 mins for $5! Lets get started! 1 Hour!

I have lived in the UK my entire life (and I am over 40! lol). During this time I have lived in Cardiff, Bristol, Gloucester, London and Oxford. Each of these areas has a slightly different English accent. I can explain the differences between accents to help you understand better.
I have been teaching English and Mathematics for over 30 years as a tutor. My best subjects at school were English and Mathematics. I have a passion for language and literature and am an avid reader of books. I also love words games and learning new and unusual words - which I will share with you!
