Private Online English Lessons with an Professional and Experienced Teacher from Dublin, Ireland.

Methodology

The Free Online Consultation
If you need English lessons, send me a message. We can meet online and I will explain my course, answer your questions, do a short speaking level test, and help you to do an online reading level test.

Before each Lesson
Before each lesson, you need to watch a movie or an episode of a series, write notes, and then explain the notes to me in English in the lesson. You need to speak for the entire duration of the lesson. As you speak, I will make comments and ask questions so that it feels like a normal conversation.

My one Rule
I have only one rule: if you come to a lesson, and say that you didn't have time to prepare for the lesson (It takes one hour!), the lesson will not continue.

In each Lesson
You do one thing in a lesson: you speak for the entire duration of the lesson. I correct and explain your mistakes, type the information in Skype, and you explore the mistakes after the lesson. You need to write enough notes to speak for the entire duration of the lesson. I will teach you how to do that.

After each Lesson
Exploring your mistakes after a lesson is the most important part of your course. I will teach you how to explore and analyse your mistakes.

Reading and Listening
Any experienced teacher will tell you that if you want to improve your English, you need to do an enormous quantity of reading and listening. I recommend that you read and listen every day. There are decades of academic research to support this idea.

Vocabulary and Grammar
A knowledge of about 3,000 words equals about 90% of a conversation in English. There are only seven kinds of sentences (grammatical structures) in English. I recommend that you revise and memorise new words every day, but learn only a limited quantity of grammar.

Fluency
My definition of fluency is 'speed'. In the course, I can teach you techniques to help you improve your fluency. All students need to improve their fluency.

The Fees
You can pay fees by means of bank transfer once a month.

Your responsibilities
At the beginning of the course, I will tell you that I am responsible for my teaching, but you are responsible for your learning. However, you can only be responsible for your learning if you know how to learn. Therefore, I will teach you a lot of skills. You can choose to use the skills or ignore them. You are responsible for your learning.

Time
If you want to learn English, the most important thing you need is time. I recommend that you study at home for a minimum of one hour per day.

Additional Information
I teach conversational English to adult students. I don't teach traditional lessons, and I don't use traditional coursebooks or methods. I don't teach business English or exam English. Your lessons will be private and online, and you will study at the same time and on the same day each week.

Ambassador

One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualified, and response guaranteed. Noel will carefully plan your first lesson.

Background

I don't use a method. Successful language learners do an enormous quantity of reading, writing, speaking, and listening. They learn a limited quantity of grammar. They don't think about methods. I have over ten years experience teaching English. I think a lot about how I teach. The result is that my students do most of the work in a lesson. The more I teach you, the less you need me, but that depends on how much time you have to study, and how open you are about using new skills and techniques.

Noel's response

Carolina is a little diamond! I need more students like her. I know she will come to every lesson completely prepared, and that she will try hard to improve. However, I perhaps need to probe a little more deeply to get closer to her needs as a student. That will just take a little more time. The experience is needless to say one hundred per cent positive.

M
Manuel

Perfect! Noel es un maestro tan servicial. De buena gana comparte las mejores prácticas para tener éxito en el aprendizaje del inglés. Prepararse para sus lecciones requiere mucho trabajo, pero el esfuerzo vale la pena.

"Noel is such a helpful teacher. He willingly shares best practices to succeed at learning english. Preparing for his lessons requires hard work, but the effort pays off."

Noel's response

Manuel is good fun to teach. He prepares well for every lesson, and tries hard to improve his English. He has a very high level of English as a result of his own hard work, and I am sure he will improve more in the lessons.

I
Iryna

Perfect! Noel is an amazing tutor!He is very calm, patient and outstanding in every way.He is a real professional.His lessons are always very informative and useful.He knows everything you need to improve your knowledge.Noel solves any of my problems like a magician:)
I know that success in learning depends only on my efforts. I will always follow Noel’s advice. English should become an indispensable part of your life if you want to speak it fluently:)
I highly recommend Noel as a tutor!

Noel's response

Iryna is a joy to teach. She prepares for every lesson, and definitely tries hard. She really wants to resolve the problems she has with her English. She has a great personality, and the lessons are good fun. It's a 100% positive experience for me.

L
Leonardo

Perfect! Noel √© um excelente professor. Em suas sess√Ķes o aluno fala o tempo inteiro e ele d√° importante dicas e explica√ß√Ķes para aprimoramento de sua gram√°tica, vocabul√°rio e pron√ļncia. Muito paciente, simp√°tico e pontual. Super recomendo!

Noel's response

Leonardo prepares very well for every lesson. His level of English is very good, and his fluency (speed) is excellent. He can express himself and is a very capable individual. The lessons are certainly a positive experience. He's also good fun in the lessons. He'll do very well.

L
Luca

Perfect! I have been following Noel's lessons since july, and I find them very interesting and useful. After many years of trying to improve my English, I think Noel's teaching method is among the best. It is well set up and full of tips and tricks. Even if for me, it is not easy to follow all the tips together, by applying some of them I am realizing that, one step at a time, I am improving in my english skills.

Noel's response

The one really good thing about Luca is that he is open to new ideas and new ways of doing things. After teaching for thirteen years, I can see that this characteristic is plainly evident in Luca's lessons. Luca has a positive attitude in the lessons, and he is good fun to teach. I like teaching him. I hope he does well in improving his English, and I have do doubt that he will.

L
Lorenzo

Perfect! Noel is a very good teacher, organized and precise. I have already done several lessons with him and will continue for several months.

Noel's response

Lorenzo prepares well for every lesson and works hard to improve his English. He has a positive attitude to learning English, and he's great to teach. He notices his mistakes, and can analyze them very well. I'm sure he will improve as a result of his own hard work.

V
Vane

Perfect! Noel es un profesor muy metódico, didáctico y que te muestra muchos tips para aprender sin darte cuenta. Es muy eficiente y muy recomendable si quieres mejorar tu ingles, eso si tienes que esforzarte también, lo que hace que permanezcas motivado con sus clases. Lo recomiendo al 100%.

Noel's response

Vanessa comes to every lesson well prepared. She tries very hard to improve. She tries so hard that I sometimes have to tell her to be less detailed in her descriptions in the lesson. She will certainly improve. She is also good fun to teach. It's a positive experience from beginning to end!

R
Riccardo

Perfect! La modalità di lavoro di Noel è semplicemente fantastica. Lezioni basate principalmente sullo "speaking" ma fornisce tutti gli strumenti per lavorare durante la settimana anche sul "Reading" ed il "Listening". Non consigliato per chi pensa di imparare l'inglese senza lavorare quotidianamente . Come dice Noel va impostata una "daily routine" che ti porti giorno ad imparare qualcosa di nuovo (verbo , parola o frase tipica inglese). Insegnante esigente ma impeccabile!

Noel's response

Riccardo is a motivated and energetic student who really seems to know what he wants. He does have independence as a learner, which is always a breath of fresh air. He's full of energy in the lesson and is good fun to teach. He will certainly improve as a result of his own hard work in the lessons. A positive experience all round!

I
Igor

Perfect! Noel is an excellent teacher, he has a unique methodology that works very well for me.
Also he teaches a lot of differents techniques to improve your learning.
I highly recommend him to everyone!

Noel's response

Igor comes to every lesson well prepared and tries very hard. His motivation seems quite high and he has a positive attitude towards learning English. He's quite confident in what he does in the lesson. For me the lessons are a positive experience from beginning to end. I have no doubts that he will improve as a result of his own hard work and determination.

J
Jamille

Perfect! Noel is an excellent teacher. He is calm, polite, very well qualified and he is always available to answer my questions. His method is fantastic and makes the learning process way easier. But if you want to really learn English you MUST commit with the processes because he is a teacher, not a magician. With that said, I do recommend him as a teacher. If you are in doubt, just go ahead with him because he is great!

Noel's response

Jamille has an amazing level of English and her fluency (speed) is excellent. It's a pleasure to teach her. She comes to the lessons prepared and she gives it one hundred per cent. She has a lively personality which makes the lesson a pleasure. It's definitely a positive experience for me.

Interview with Noel

QUESTION 01 | 08
Você fala fluentemente esta língua por causa de suas origens ou porque um professor te motivou a aprendê-la?
Noel ‚ÄĒ I'm a native English speaker. I've always been interested in English. I began to read English from a young age, and I have continued reading about a wide variety of subjects ever since. My reading has greatly contributed to my ability to teach English. A good teacher is a good reader! There is also a large quantity of academic research supporting the importance of reading as a means of increasing knowledge of vocabulary and deepening knowledge of known vocabulary. If you want to speak English well, don't underestimate the importance of reading.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Cite uma pessoa (da atualidade, histórica ou fictícia) que, na sua opinião, representa bem a cultura da língua que você ensina.
Noel ‚ÄĒ The greatest influence on my English is Professor Steven Pinker. His command of English is extraordinary. He gets to the point immediately. When you read his books, you certainly need to pay attention. His English is clear and vivid. He supports what he says with vast quantities of research. When I read his books, I need to reach for a dictionary many times. That's good for my English, and it's therefore good for my students.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Existe alguma palavra, expressão ou tradição típica que você goste particularmente?
Noel ‚ÄĒ I particularly like the following words: languages are learned more than they are taught. The commercial market is full of products promising fluency in record periods of time. Languages have never been learned in record periods of time. However, it's possible to learn a language more efficiently. Therefore, I teach my students a lot of skills. The idea is that the more I teach you, the less you need me, but that depends on whether or not a student is willing to learn a broad range of skills and become a more independent learner.
QUESTION 04 | 08
Por qual motivo aprender esta l√≠ngua √© importante (seja no √Ęmbito escolar, profissional ou pessoal)?
Noel ‚ÄĒ Why a student learns English depends on the needs of the student. Some students need English to advance their careers. Other students need English because they would like to travel a lot. In my opinion, people should learn languages so that they can see the world from a perspective which is utterly different from their own. Seeing the world from the perspective of others is a fundamental life skill.
QUESTION 05 | 08
Qual a maior dificuldade no aprendizado desta língua e o como contornar este obstáculo?
Noel ‚ÄĒ For some students, they simply don't know where to begin when learning English. Should they read more or listen more? Which is more important: grammar or vocabulary? There are many more questions. Therefore, I structure my students learning by recommending the following daily routine: read English every day, listen to English every day, revise new words every day, learn at least one phrasal verb every day, and try to resolve at least one problem every day. I also recommend a weekly (weekend) routine of preparing for lessons, and exploring mistakes made in previous lesson. If you want to learn a language, you need to know what to do, how to do it, and how often to do it. That's what I teach my students. I teach them language learning skills. Teaching is also a means of taking bad ideas out of a student's head, putting good ideas into a student's head, and that means trying to change how a student thinks, which is a very difficult thing to do, but if a teacher can do it, teaching can be one of the most fulfilling jobs in the world.
QUESTION 06 | 08
Você poderia compartilhar alguma história e/ou curiosidade engraçada relacionada à sua profissão ou as aulas particulares?
Noel ‚ÄĒ The extraordinary variety of personalities is certainly the most interesting, stimulating, and rewarding aspect of my job. Each new student is a completely new challenge. Starting to teach a new student is like starting a new job. It's impossible to get bored. The sheer variety of personalities and temperaments is endless. Teaching such a huge variety of different people is the ultimate enjoyable challenge.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Nos ajude a te conhecer melhor, nos conte um pouco sobre suas viagens, amizades nativas no idioma que voc√™ voc√™ leciona entre outros! ūüėĄ
Noel ‚ÄĒ Making friends in the language you are learning is the most important thing, and for one simple reason: people are the most interesting texts. Movies and series are interesting, but they don't match the complexity and diversity of people.
QUESTION 08 | 08
O que faz de voc√™ um Superprof (al√©m do poder de se comunicar em v√°rias l√≠nguas ūüėČ) ?
Noel ‚ÄĒ What makes me a Superprof is that I give my students responsibilities and they learn more effectively as a result. I don't prepare for my lessons; my students prepare for their lessons. What I do before and after the lessons is more important than what I do in a lesson. What I know from experience is more important than what I do in a lesson. Only with experience can a teacher know that the student should do most of the work in a lesson. I put my students under a little pressure and that also helps them learn more effectively. Most importantly, my students tell me that for the first time in their lives they actually know that they are improving.
