    Hi I am a native English-speaking Londoner, highly educated with straight As and two Masters from the UK, now age 38 with a family in Copenhagen, where I teach at Copenhagen University Faculty of Psychiatry.

    I taught English Language (TEFL) in a cool busy school in Central London for 5 years. I went on to have another career as a professional academic in Child Psychology, and you can find my work online published by Oxford University Press and in The Spectator

    I am an expert in English Language for all levels, but in particular advanced levels - exam preparation, essay writing and essay composition, examined speaking and so on. I will help you achieve top marks in your school exams, or make the most compelling business presentation, teaching you all the idioms and language tricks you need to get distinguished from all the rest.

    As you can see I am a serious professional teacher with a lot of experience and skills - you are getting a lot of bang for your buck!

    I can also teach piano!

    English Essay Writing: Eloquence, Persuasion, and Grammar
    A good essay is undoubtably an art-form. There are many essential components to a harmonious piece of writing, and to ensure an effective balance between them requires great skill, and some flare. Both of which can be taught. During this class students will learn: - how to use sentence structure to their advantage - how to write persuasively and with eloquence - how to brush their essays with a distinctive quality, thereby setting them apart form the rest - the correct use of quotations and referencing in an English essay - perfect grammar This class works best in conjunction with a school or university curriculum. Together we can edit essays you have already written, or work on new essays from the beginning.

    English Pronunciation Classes, Exam Preparation and Proofreading
    This class is for students who want to refine their English pronunciation, either for examination preparation or for job interviews. My goal is to give students the confidence to speak English fluently and accurately. I am an experienced teacher and linguist, and I encourage students to develop their speaking skills for academic, social and career advancement. Online classes are structured, with regular homework. Pronunciation classes are recorded, so that students can practise at home, and I give them regular progress reports, so that they can measure their improvement. This is my special area, but I am also an experienced exam coach and academic proofreader (MA and PhD theses).

I specialise in human rights and climate change, business and human rights, refugees, and the rights of children. I can also teach the foundations of the common law system. So, if you need to brush up on your Shakespeare, understand the Paris Agreement, or would just like to practice your English idioms out, please get in touch! Best wishes, Hugh

I will provide printed worksheets and assignments (included in the fees of the lesson) to be done during the lesson and also as homework. Workbooks may be provided at an additional cost which you can work with on your own at home after the lesson. This is of course highly recommended for your own benefit as practice makes perfect. In the first meeting, we will discuss further on the preference of workload and what you would like to learn. For more inquiries, you can contact me and I will do my best to reply as soon as possible.
