I focus on ESL/EFL, Italian and Beginners' Spanish tuition, but also offer tuition for other subjects (list as shown on my profile).

Whilst most of my experience is with teaching adults, I have also taught younger learners too.

-Lessons emphasis high student engagement through speaking (especially pronunciation) and listening exercises, with some grammar and elements of reading and grammar games.

-I prefer to assign reading and writing tasks for homework to practice between lessons.

-Lessons are tailored to meet your needs and/or interests.

- I use materials from a variety of sources, including books, newspaper articles (print and online), magazines, songs, etc. For foreign languages, I have produced a vast amount of resources that have been checked by native speakers and content that has been cross-checked with other reputable sources to ensure high-quality original materials are used without any copyright infringement. Notwithstanding this, I am also happy to use published books that have been purchased by a student as well.

Lesson structure (flexible based on student demands):

- 5-10 mins max warm-up and quick revision
- 3 x 15 minutes activities to study content, focusing on one grammar point at at time, not to overwhelm students with info.
- 5-minute revision exercise of lesson's contents.

I am passionate about providing students with the best opportunity to learn and utilise the language/knowledge both inside and outside the classroom, especially for the latter; applying this knowledge outside of the classroom will facilitate the learning speed and overall process.



I have over three years of tuition experience, both for tutoring individuals and groups
within a classroom setting (up to seven people).

The majority of my classes are teaching students within small groups and business
English. Students from the aforementioned professions generally consist of private

I have also previously taught Italian, Spanish, Maths and Reading (in English).

"My wife and I choose Anthony as our Italian tutor from many others and have never been disappointed in our choice. He is extremely prepared each week with sessions customized to our interests. We will travel to Italy in a few months and we are already feeling much more prepared to "palare italiano" with the locals there. He is punctual, polite, patient and just plain fun to work with. I give him my highest rating as a truly professional tutor. Jim Burke"
