Student Comments

I have had lots of English teachers from when I started to learn the English language but in my opinion, the only person who taught me and helped me how to speak, and more than that, how to use English correctly was John. I think he is a really professional English teacher and no one can teach this language better than him. I will never forget his help.

PSE gives a good chance to those who are learning English and have problems with speaking as with PSE you have different topics to discuss with others while there is a native speaker to help you speak English well. By the way, the organiser asks everyone to speak so everyone gets a chance to speak.

John is a wonderful organiser of services, knowing the needs of his clients very well. He is a really client-oriented person and has excellent knowledge of who needs what. I strongly recommend John’s company [Practice Speaking English] as the one that will raise your skills of mastering English in all aspects, be it speech, reading or writing to the highest possible level.

John assisted me with my preparation for the TOEFL exam, he always did an excellent job. The hours I spent with him learning were interesting, effective and very useful. He provided very good examples and gave me great advice. John is also a pleasant, respectful, modest, calm person and he cares about the knowledge he gives to his students. These are just a few reasons why I would highly recommend John. Thank you for all your patience and the great help you provided me, John!

I participated in some sessions from this website, and I could learn many things, my English speaking skill improved a lot. Before those sessions, I was unable to speak in English, but after them, I could get a score of 6.5 in the IELTS exam. Also, I believe that these types of session give you the chance to think and speak in English at the same time. The organiser gives you your faults, etc. The organisers are professional in teaching English, there are other people like you in the sessions with different accents and also the best technology is used to organise it all so I highly recommend all the people who are learning English to try this website and improve their speaking skill by participating in Practise Speaking English sessions and enjoy learning English.

John’s excellent job helps me get 7.5 for IELTS. I was ever poor in English speaking, but John helps me a lot. I got 7.5 for speaking finally, which is much better than 5.5 previously after about 1 month’s practice.

I find it really necessary to dwell upon the methods represented by John. He brought his personal attitude towards my purposes and the goals that I had to achieve in learning English. My final aim was such a complicated exam as IELTS. John showed himself as an experienced, intelligent and concerned tutor. He responded to my request as quickly as possible, shared pieces of advice with me, demonstrated a true interest in my progress, constructed our lessons step by step, raised our homework up to a vital contribution among other obligatory components of my English improved. In spite of my lack of time, my success was up to standard thanks to John. Obviously, his task was to help me out. My previous result turned out not to exceed 6.0. Within only 6 lessons with him, we made what now seems next to impossible: I reached my 7.0 easily and efficient. John's lessons are tremendously productive, fruitful and absolutely useful if you intend to get the highest results running out of time. I am really grateful to him and have to admit how lucky I am to choose such a gifted teacher among others.

John is an experienced man who has a substantial business background in the insurance market. His language is clear and reach, he has a good sense of humour, he is very friendly and you will feel comfortable to talk to him. I would recommend this tutor for people who are seeking the development of their skills in the business environment, especially for those who are involved in the insurance market and dispute settlement (including lawyers, loss adjusters, brokers etc.).

I took only one lesson with John in preparation for the IELTS test. He went above and beyond in terms of thorough preparations before the lesson as well as reviewing my work after the lesson. He does not only show excellent English language skills (which is expected) but also displays pedagogical competence and understanding of my specific individual needs. I would greatly recommend John for his future students.

Excellent teacher! I struggled with writing but he helped me a lot. In comparison to other teachers, he hasn't just corrected my writing tasks grammatically and on vocabulary but also advised me how to structure arguments and essays. Extremely useful and relevant tips were given by him. I took only 10 hours, however, I improved in every IELTS section from band 6 to 7.

I have tried so many websites to improve my speaking in English but they were not helpful until I met John and he introduced PSE. It was something different, I highly recommend you to try it.

У меня была цель заговорить перед командировкой. За 20 занятий у меня это получилось! Джон имеет очень хороший онлайн инструментарий по грамматике. Восприятие на слух для меня было вполне комфортно, да и вообще занятия проходили в комфортной доверительной атмосфере. У Джона богатый жизненный опыт и есть о чем поговорить. Это был мой первый опыт занятий с репетитором-носителем. Джон не говорит по-русски и это очень хорошо, получается отлично погружение на занятиях. Джон отличный преподаватель (именно преподаватель, а не просто собеседник) - рекомендую!
