À propos de moi

Hello. I'm David. I strongly recommend you choose a different teacher unless you're serious about learning a lot in a very few short weeks.

Do you need to succeed in a job interview? I have an excellent track record in training my students to win in such situations. Do you need to pass IELTS, CAE, CPE, or any other exam? Do you need to massively improve your fluency and your confidence within the next 5 weeks? Do you have problems with your business which your expensive business consultants have scratched their heads about hopelessly for too long and to which you want practical, fast, no-nonsense solutions? Do you need to get your personal life in order and make a realistic plan to overcome personal obstacles and to make good, self-interested decisions? ...I have expertise and experience and a long, strong, robust list of success stories from my students which gives me the confidence to tell you this good news: your problems are now about to be solved, permanently.

I have more than 20 years' experience teaching English to university students, business executives, nephrologists, diagnosticians, MBA professors, politicians, sports superstars and many other professionals.

I am a trained, qualified clinical psychologist, specialized in motivational training, conflict resolution and problem-solving.

I worked for 5 years at ESADE in Barcelona, teaching English For Business Professionals as well as CAE, CPE, FCE and other exam-preparation courses; I specialized in coaching executives to succeed in job interviews and I spent several years giving many individual MBA Professors one-to-one coaching to help them to be supremely confident and fluent in English when presenting to international groups of students on their executive education courses.

I was a freelance teacher in Spain for many years, teaching at various companies and for various language schools. I have organized and imparted teacher-training courses for highly-qualified, experienced, elite business English teachers as well as for novice, entry-level teachers.

In recent years I moved to Vietnam, and I now live in Hanoi, where I work as a business consultant, teacher-trainer and English teacher; I also tutor students over the internet. My current online students are from China, Saudi Arabia, Italy, Brazil, Switzerland, Taiwan, Spain, Korea, Poland, and other countries.

I enjoy teaching, and my focus is always on adapting, selecting and creating personalized materials as well as organizing tasks in order to achieve your personal study goals and life objectives. I prioritize speaking above the other three skills unless you tell me you have a different preference.

In my opinion, speaking is the most important skill. I always get my students talking right from the beginning of each lesson, and we talk almost constantly during each lesson, while we are studying vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation together.

Writing is also important (because writing well is excellent preparation for speaking well) and I always offer my students writing tasks for optional homework; and the writing task is always based on something we had a conversation about in class, so that it's an opportunity for you to get some more practice of that vocabulary and grammar which we studied that day. But I understand that everyone is busy, so homework is always optional. If you don't have time to do the homework, then that's okay! Don't get stressed out about it.

Book a lesson with me today, right now. See you soon.
