Hello everyone!

My name is Mick.

I have been teaching English as a foreign language for more than 10 years, during which time I have been lucky enough to live and work in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Ecuador. I teach general English to students from all age groups and prepare candidates for Cambridge English and IELTS examinations. 

In my free time I am involved with a charitable organisation which creates links between young peoples’ groups and their workers across the globe. I also love spending endless hours strolling on beaches, reading and watching football! 

I am really looking forward to making a huge contribution to the success of students at This is English!

Thanks and hope to meet you soon!

I have been studying English with This is English for three years. They have creative teachers who can easily identify the topics that can be interesting for the students in order to conduct conversations in a natural way. By combining the exact dose of grammar with new words, idioms and information about British culture, the lessons are very dynamic.

I started the lessons with This is English a couple of years ago and ​they really helped me to improve my confidence and correct very old mistakes. I highly recommend these lessons because they are totally customised, not only in terms of language level but also to suit your schedule and location. The great thing is that as the lessons are very dynamic -  the time is flying so the learning process is always fun and easy."

My journey with This is English started a year ago, when I was applying for a course at university. My English wasn’t good enough to get the credentials needed to pass IELTS, so I decided to seek some help from someone more experienced. Therefore I attended some classes  and after 3 lessons, confidence and positivity became my most powerful tool for learning. For each session I was attending, academic progresses and personal confidence become my strongest motivations.

So far my English has considerably improved and I also managed to pass IELTS and access the course that I’ve chosen; striking all my goals!

Hello, my name is Joanna, and I’m Polish. I am pleased to tell you a few words about Richard as he used to be my teacher for a few years. I found him to be very professional and reliable. My classes with Richard were all very interesting. He imparts knowledge in a very good way, and he’s really focused and passionate on what he does.

I have to admit that my English considerably improved after years of English lessons with him, which helped me take on a new and better role in my workplace as I can now communicate with people more. It gave me the confidence that I need and am no longer afraid to talk to people. I highly recommend Richard to anyone who would like to improve their English language and lead a better life.

"I started one-to-one lessons with Rich more than one year ago. It became clear to me that English is not an easy  language at all. Rich has a very pragmatic way to identify areas for improvement in a dialogue based on which he builds really helpful exercises. I like his structured approach to help me expanding my vocabulary, grammar and mostly my pronunciation. I can recommend Rich to anyone who would like to learn or improve their English with a very competent and nice teacher".
