À propos de moi

Hello! I’m Alison, a TEFL-certified teacher of English. I’m from the south-east of England but I’ve travelled a lot, I lived in northern England and the USA, and now I live in Barcelona, Spain. So I know lots of different types of English.

A lesson with me will help you to:
communicate better in English
become more confident
improve your fluency and pronunciation

It will be challenging but enjoyable. I will find out what you need and how you use English, and design our classes to your requirements and level. I have worked a lot with academics and businesses, so if you need to improve your English for work, research or study, I can help you.

I love language, especially my native English. I am also a writer and used to be an editor. I can speak Spanish and I’m learning Catalan. A long time ago I learned French and German, but I can’t remember much now. Because I’ve spent a lot of time as a language student, I am a patient and understanding teacher. I know how it feels!

Tell me what you need and let’s get you to where you want to be.
