Hello, nice to meet you! Please call me Lew or Lewis. I am a 39-year-old male from England, UK. I am very excited to be given an opportunity to teach you. I’m a friendly, positive and encouraging English tutor that transcends passion for helping people. My main motivation for teaching English is to facilitate the development of effective learning and to aid students to become better. I really hope you find my lessons to be fun, engaging and inspiring.
I am a very patient and understanding individual who will be professional at all times and adaptable towards your needs. We can conduct the lesson in your chosen method and at any pace you require. Whether it’s a free-talk conversation, using the learning materials or looking at complex articles; whatever you feel you need assistance with.
I have a Diploma in Music Technology (which incidentally, is very much like learning a new language!) I have an honours degree in Science (social sciences) and I have life coaching and counselling skills.
I work for the NHS Trust which is the primary state care provider in the UK. I have also worked in a palliative care home and had voluntary administrative roles.
Specifically, I can help you with basic to advanced levels of vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, essay editing, project editing, developing analysis skills by examining a text, exam preparation techniques and much more. My strengths are explaining and pronouncing difficult words and placing them into contextual usage, conversation-based learning, structuring sentences so they sound more natural, identifying phrases and giving examples of how they might be used, slang and academic editing.
My main hobbies include video gaming, watching world cinema movies, playing pool, photography and taking care of my pedigree cats. I love watching sports: darts, hockey and mixed martial arts.
I thoroughly embrace Japanese culture and would love to visit one day. I am also a huge fan of the directors Sion Sono and Takashi Miike.
Finally, i’d like to say it’ll be a pleasure to teach and to get to know you.
