Hi my name is Al,

I have a bachelor’s degree in engineering from United Kingdom.  I have worked as a professional English tutor for more than 10 years conducting both private and online classes either one to one or in group classes.

I love teaching and thrive on seeing my students gaining the self-confidence to speak English fluently and striving to build their future.

 In my free time I write, I love writing inspirational articles and stories and would love to share my thoughts. Of course I love hiking deep into the unspoiled nature.

Through the last decade I have tested many methods of teaching, modern, classic, traditional and out of the box. I must say that every method has its pros and cons. Be that as it may, I believe what counts in today’s fast growing global economy is to accomplish result as fast as possible and this is the jewel everyone is searching for. I have had numerous students from across the globe. The first and fore most question on their mind is how long does it take to become fluent. 
From many trials and errors and analysing the practical results of my courses, I have finally acquired a unique methodology which I call, "personalized English". In a nutshell it can be summarized in the following stages: 

Stage one:

 Identifying the need of my students, first by listening to their background in English and their goals. Secondly by taking a comprehensive level test from them.

Stage two:

 Tailoring dynamic lesson plans focusing on the students’ needs. These worksheets are updated by getting feedback from students and analysing their progress trying to pinpoint their weak and strength points. 

Stage Three:

 Conducting intensive classes making English their life during the course. I call it immersion in English. In addition to the tasks given to the students, they will be listening and watching English podcasts on a regular basis. 

Currently I am utilizing this methodology in my classes and it really works. Here is the testeminoy of three of my students:

I have been looking for a perfect tutor for 4 years. Before our first class , I was very impressed that Al was very flexible to meet my demanding schedule. After his evaluation, I knew I should look no longer . We hit it off right away and I always look forward to our classes. He personally tailored lessons for my needs and is very creative in his approach . With Al time flies by and I’m excited like a kid for new topics. No more boring textbooks . I love the structure of his lessons and the materials he uses. It makes me think outside of the box. I’ve taken 15 lessons already and can tell for sure that my confidence in speaking is skyrocketing. Al is very patient, knowledgeable, and diplomatic. He’s kind but at the same time pushes you to your limits to succeed . If you are looking for a tutor who’s bright , fun and has a personal approach to every student , I’d recommend Al in a heartbeat!

Al Thompson is just the best tutor I’ve ever had. I am from Ukraine. You know, it’s impossible to find a really good native speaker teacher in English in my county. First, I wasn’t sure that I would like skype lessons. But after several lessons all my doubts were over. He is very experience, polite, well organized and somehow understands what you exactly need. I do like the content we are discussing. Every topic is interesting. I became much more confident when I speak or write in English.

Al is an outstanding teacher. He helps me to prepare for my TOEFL exam. During our studying lessons, Al provides a lot of valuable feedback on how to improve my English and which are the areas I should concentrate on. Al has revealed a lot of intricacies which are important for earning a high grade in TOEFL. He also gives me a lot of material to work on my own.
I would be glad to see you in my classes.
Best Regards
