Justin is a true professional and is really gifted at helping job seekers in their career path. He assisted me a lot with career advice, job application adaptation and proofreading. He is really good at communication, reading between the lines, and highlighting the core idea. Our lessons or as I would rather call it a master class, were absolutely great and easy going. Thank you very much, Justin, for your amazing approach, custom-made professional and easy attitude, and a super international mindset. I would very much recommend it!
Justin ils a really good English teacher, helpful and polite, thanks to him I can practice my spoken english :) I highly recommend !
Justin is a nice teacher, he helped me to prepare for the speaking section of TOEFL.
J'ai fait appel à Justin pour me préparer au Toefl et pour m'aider à appliquer pour des masters à l'étranger l'année prochaine. Il a été à l'écoute de mes besoins et m'a apporté de l'aide pour identifier et remplir mes lacunes en anglais pour passer le test. Il m'a aussi beaucoup aidée à rédiger et renforcer mes dossiers de candidature. Je le recommande vivement!
A joyful, patient and experienced teacher

Habib
English for business/conversation/presentations/writing
I'm an experienced English teacher and communications professional. I've also worked extensively in journalism, so can provide guidance on all means of communication. I have a British accent - London to be precise! However, I am familiar with the nuances of other accents and spelling differences. I have a lot of experience in helping newcomers to the British accent understand the subtle pronunciation differences that will make it far easier for you to understand. I've lived in the UK, Spain, Brazil and now Belgium and love discussing other cultures, societies and environments. It's really for fulfilling for me to incorporate all of this into my lessons and watch students progress over time. I prefer giving conversational lessons and only guiding students on points of grammar they don't understand (as the grammar all starts to make sense when you get the rhythm and vocabulary first!). My lessons incorporate video and other listening and interactive activities.
