Lisa Viner English Teacher

Hello, My name is Lisa Viner.

I am a qualified teacher of English and have been teaching English as a Foreign Language, General English and preparing both adults and children for a variety of exams for 40 years.  This means that I have acquired 40 years’ worth of experience of teaching individuals, small groups, and classes.

Why is that good for you?  If you want to learn English my extensive experience makes it so easy for me to adjust my teaching to your individual needs.  I can judge how best to help you, by customising your lesson to focus on grammar, vocabulary, writing, reading or speaking skills – in other words – whatever you need to succeed.

I can combine teaching both general English knowledge with exam preparation lessons that will equip you with all the skills you need to pass exams, write emails, take notes in lectures or speak English confidently.  I know how stressful it can be to prepare for and pass exams such as IELTS, and my experience will guide you through this process smoothly to provide you with all the knowledge you need to learn English and chieve the success you desire.

Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ's

How much do you charge?

I know that the price of a lesson or a group of lessons is very important, no one wants to pay more than they need to. That is why I have competitive prices and can offer reduced rates for group lessons, or a block of lessons.

Are you a qualified tutor?

I have a BA degree from The University of Essex & a TEFL Q Certificate, which enable me to teach English both in The UK and abroad.

How long do your lessons last?

I generally advise my students to take 1 hour lessons, however, it is possible to request shorter or longer lessons with me.

Are you a freelance tutor or a Tutoring Agency?

I am a freelance private tutor, or arranging lessons with me directly means that you can avoid agency fees on top of the price of your lessons. I am always available to answer any questions my students might have or offer help when requested.

Is online tutoring safe?

Yes, because I can record all the classes on zoom and so you have a record of your lesson that you can refer to any time, and I have an up-to-date DBS certificate.

Is online tutoring more effective that face-to-face tutoring?

Yes, online tutoring enables both the tutor and student to arrange lessons whenever it suits them. Studying from home saves time as there is no travelling to and from class. It also enables the tutor to share materials with students immediately, effectively and free of charge.
