About me

I worked overseas for 18 years, covering an area from Cairo to Singapore and all Africa.  As a result, I understand the difficulties of various cultures when it comes to learning and speaking the English language.

I have now been teaching English online for over seven years, working with children in China and Vietnam and with adults from such countries as Russia, Saudi Arabia, Latvia, Bulgaria, Switzerland and even as far away as Bolivia.

I have helped students obtain the necessary IELTS qualifications to emigrate to English-speaking countries such as Australia, as well as others who wished to attend an English-speaking University.  Recently, I assisted a gentleman prepare and rehearse a speech he gave to 1,500 delegates at the European Union.

I currently live in Northern Ireland, part of the UK and use the latest, top-level technology to ensure students have every facility available to help them achieve their goals when learning English.

I am fortunate in that I have the ability and expertise to understand the challenges students often face when learning a new language.  It has been said that “patience is a virtue” and I have more than enough patience to spend whatever time is necessary to help students understand their errors and how to put them right.


I have the appropriate TEFL qualifications that enable me to teach English as a second language.


My speciality is the pronunciation of English, a highly essential aspect for those who use English as a second language.  Pronunciation can be challenging as there are various letters in our language that are not present in a student’s native language, such as TH, or are pronounced differently to English.

I primarily concentrate those senior, professional managers who require a good knowledge and expertise of both speaking and writing English.  Their aim is to be able to hold somewhat intense conversations when negotiating business in English-speaking countries, yet may also be required to give full, sometimes detailed presentations to prospective clients or at seminars.

I have a good track record with students aiming to pass either the IELTS or Cambridge Advanced exam.  At the time of writing, two of my students have successfully qualified to emigrate to Australia and work as Medical Doctors, with several others progressing towards their appropriate qualifications for University.

C2: Englisch (Mother tongue)

England and America are two countries separated by a common language.

Why am I teaching online? –

Around seven years ago, I decided I was going to learn a foreign language – Russian to be exact!  I joined a free website, but instead of learning even one word of Russian, I found myself helping other students with their English.  What’s more, I found that I truly was able to help people and that they could learn from me.

So, I formally qualified as a TEFL teacher, prepared my own easy to understand course material and seven years ago, secured my first student who lived in Russia.

I thoroughly enjoy my job, and I will do all I can to help you achieve your goals when it comes to speaking, reading, writing and listening to English.

Let me show you how easy it can be!

Da ich angehende Lehrer bin, brauchte ich umbedingt das Proficiency. Es war sehr interessant und sehr hilfreich einen Privatlehrer übers Internet zu haben. Das Modell hat Zukunft.

Michael aus Zürich

Habe das Gefühl, dass 25 Lektionen mir mehr für die First Prüfung gebracht haben als 3 Jahre Berufsschule bei der KV Zürich Business School. Jetzt lerne ich nur noch mit homestudies Sprachen. Mein Lehrer war sehr flexibel und ich bin in jeder Lektion weitergekommen.

Kevin aus Wallisellen

Der Refresher für die BEC Vantage  Vorbereitung war sehr wertvoll. Meine Lehrerin hat die Lücken schnell aufgedeckt. Ab dann konnten wir uns voll und ganz auf deren Behebung konzentrieren. 10 Lektionen genügten für eine Schnellbleiche.
Wenn ich irgendwann Ambitionen auf ein höheres Level habe, werde ich mich auf jeden Fall wieder an homestudies wenden.

Markus aus der Schweiz

Meine ersten 10 Englisch-Lektionen mit meinem Homestudies-Lehrer haben wir geholfen, Vertrauen und Sicherheit in der Englischen Sprache zu finden. Wir haben meine Aussprache verbessert und das freie Sprechen geübt. Das Programm war auf meine Bedürfnisse abgestimmt und mein Lehrer hat mich immer wieder aufs Neue ermutigt. Dies war sehr hilfreich und ermöglicht es mir nun die Sprache ohne Einschränkungen und Hemmungen zu nutzen und aktiv anzuwenden.

Simone Gabriela aus Basel

Mein CPE Kurs bei Homestudies ist sehr zielorientiert. Der Lehrer geht sofort auf auftretende Probleme ein und bringt mich gezielt weiter. Die Flexibilität der Unterrichtszeiten ist super und für mich ist es auch spannend. Ich bin begeistert von der Professionalität des Lehrers.
