My name is Stephen Taylor and I have been teaching English as a Foreign Language since 1987. I am experienced in both the physical classroom and teaching online. I have experience of teaching over 22 different nationalities and students of all ages.

I know that students do not all learn in the same way and my classes are always tailored to meet the individual needs of my students. My classes are always well planned and the lesson objectives are clearly defined


One to one classes allow the teacher to focus entirely on you. If you make grammatical errors or pronunciation mistakes, the teacher can correct you immediately. There’s no waiting while the teacher deals with another student.

Your questions can be answered immediately and classes can be planned around your individual language interests or problems. Your learning needs are assessed before your classes begin so that every class is an important class.


The student comes first

In over 30 years of teaching English as a foreign language, I have learned that my students are all different and they have different needs. It is essential that an effective teacher recognises this and tailors courses and classes to meet the exact needs of the student. One size does not fit all. English Only Online Courses and Classes are designed and planned with that in mind.

Exam English

I am fully experienced in preparing students for different exams in English. My knowledge of the different Cambridge exams is extensive and I also have a deep understanding of the requirements of the IELTS exam. Though I firmly believe that there is no secret method to exam success, there are many techniques and strategies that will gain you points in different parts of every English exam.

Experience matters

Over the last three decades, I have taught students of over 22 different nationalities. My students are speakers of many different languages and have reached different levels of English.  I have taught business professionals, students and retirees. All students have a desire to learn English. How these students learn and how they are taught is never the same.

General English

Some students study English so that they can perform well in a job interview or to give them confidence when travelling abroad. Others spend part of their working day communicating in English face to face, on the telephone or through social media and email messages. All students need to practise a range of English language skills and to recognise the relationship between good grammar knowledge and accurate speaking and writing.
