Coaching with a native UK English tutor. If you ever feel shy, nervous or intimidated speaking English, focused one-to-one coaching to increase your speaking confidence may well be the solution for you. My name is James Stewart, I am a native English speaker and English language coach (I was born and grew up in England and have a British English accent). I am a UK university graduate, certified teacher of English as a foreign language and have well over two decades experience of working and providing training in UK university, corporate business and health service environments. I specialise in one-to-one coaching for speakers of English as a second language to significantly increase their fluency and confidence speaking English. For spoken English skills I focus on effective communication, listening, pronunciation, developing speaking skills, expanding vocabulary and relevant English phrases for your area of work or study. With me, you will learn the English that native speakers use.
At the start of our work together we will agree a coaching plan which includes an English placement exercise (this is not a test, it is a useful tool to provide an indication of areas of English language strength and areas that are opportunities for development) so we can quickly become aware of specific aspects of English that can be focused upon in order to significantly increase your confidence using the language. The coaching I offer is highly focused and relevant to your needs. I aim to help you identify, question and step free from potentially limiting assumptions, thinking patterns and approaches to speaking English. This focus might mean that we work together on specific workplace or study situations where you may feel pressure such as interviews, meetings and presentations or more generally on your confidence speaking English in the workplace or educational environment.
