« My name is Fernando. I’m from São Paulo, Brazil. When I was looking for an English teacher I was trying to find someone who would have an excellent education and who was well-experienced in teaching - you know, there are lots of English teachers out there, but not many have proper qualifications to do it. I could see that Helen undoubtedly has those qualifications that I was looking for from her amazing profile. After having started classes with Helen, I’d realised that I found so much more than I was hoping for: the quality of the teaching that I was receiving exceeded all my expectations. Helen is a very enthusiastic teacher, she truly believes in what she does. After only a few minutes of a class, she can recognize your weak point and structure the class in order to correct them. I was impressed with the way she prepared the classes and dealt with both my weaknesses and needs. I've learned a lot with her, especially in terms of the vocabulary improvement, phonetics and grammar points like word order, adjectives and so on. Therefore, I highly recommend Helen to everyone who wants to improve their English skills. »

Methodologie

If I choose you as my student and you choose me as your teacher, I will address all of your English language needs to the best of my ability. That's why you'll be able to reach your goals with me in the shortest amount of time possible.

My qualifications, level of proficiency, experience, results of my teaching and time/effort invested in tailoring the classes to your specific needs ensure your tangible progress. My personality contributes immensely as well - I am friendly, understanding, considerate and supportive. I know where to encourage you more and where to let you absorb the knowledge at your own pace. You can be sure that with me you'll easily gain confidence, open up and practice your English in everyday real-life situations without anything holding you back.

Therefore, whether you would like to become fluent in English for personal or professional reasons, study or work in a foreign country - give it a go, you will be satisfied with your decision.

In terms of online classes, it has been widely acknowledged that they go very well and are exceptionally convenient. Personally, I had been teaching both online and face-to-face for more than 5 years. Eventually, my students and I decided that online classes were much more efficient than face-to-face due to the advantages they offer. To name a few:

- The comfort of your home as a place of studying;

- A flexible schedule as there is no need to commute;

- A possibility to continue with your classes even if you move to a different city/country or travel a lot on a regular basis;

- And many more, the list goes on :)

Last but not least - in order for your learning process to be successful, you'll need to have an excellent internet connection and a laptop (e.g. MacBook Pro, Samsung Notebook 9, etc.). I’m sure you understand that the classes can not be conducted via tablet computers, smartphones (e.g. iPads, iPhones, etc.) or if the internet connection is poor.

Dit is de perfecte leraar! Een profiel van goede kwaliteit, een excellent diploma, antwoordt binnen een dag. Helen plant de eerste les met zorg.

Ervaring

Being an English teacher is my occupation and vocation. I am a Master of Arts in English teaching and Applied Linguistics, Griffith University, Australia. After graduation, I taught at Griffith University and a variety of language academies in Australia, England, Scotland, Spain in addition to being a private tutor. Overall, I've spent 8 years teaching students from different countries, cultural backgrounds, level of proficiency and age groups.



In my teaching, I follow an effective method mastered during my studies and teaching practice - a communicative student-centred approach. It means I don't explain grammar and vocabulary in a traditional way. Instead, I make YOU think, reflect, realise, learn and arrive at conclusions not just receive given results from the teacher. I put you in the centre and help you to feel the language, comprehend its core and the way it functions.



During the classes, we will have a lot of practical work. You will learn how to behave appropriately in any real-life situation. In other words, you'll be able to cope with whatever life throws at you in English. Moreover, I pay a lot of attention to your pronunciation: I will correct your sounds and meticulously work on the improvement of your accent until it's native-like. I can teach you three distinct types of English accents: Australian, British and American. You choose which accent you're going to become an expert in :)

P.S. Check out my video CVs in English and Spanish languages via my youtube channel helenoz.

In addition, take a look at my interview responses at the bottom of the page after the "recommendations" section - you'll find loads of handy information there!

In my article: "In your opinion, what does it take to be a successful English speaker?" I give 11 useful tips. I came up with them over the years thanks to my teaching practice and students' feedback.

I recently compiled my personal reflection "Alice in Wonderland" for my students to help them learn as many helpful phrases as possible in the easiest and quickest way possible from just one source.

It contains more than 100 (!) phrasal verbs, collocations, set expressions, phrases and idioms, which I meticulously hand-picked. All of them are widely used and up to date. Moreover, they are exceptionally easy to remember thanks to the context I’ve put them in. And there is no need to jump all over the net and navigate through dozens of websites to find the expressions/idioms – they are already at your fingertips.

So, make sure you check them out and if you liked the reflection, feel free to get in touch :) I have ​heaps of​ ​fun and extraordinary activities related to it, which will significantly ​boost up your vocabulary and greatly improve your English speaking skills.

Specificaties

Classes are taught to ADULTS ONLY (18 years old and older). Therefore, please note that lesson requests from parents who are looking for a tutor for their underage children will NOT be considered.

Classes are conducted EXCLUSIVELY online via Skype. The duration of a free introductory class is 15 minutes, so we will have enough time to discuss any questions you may have.

General English classes, conversation classes, visual thematic speaking sessions, vocabulary / grammar development classes, preparation for job interviews and creation of video/audio CVs.

Please keep in mind that if you’d like your results to be tangible and sustainable, you should commit to having at least 2-3 classes per week. Think of mastering your English language skills as training your muscles - are you going to be able to gain any noticeable muscle strength going to the gym just once per week? Not likely. Without a strong commitment, your muscles are going to quickly forget any training they underwent. The same applies to your English skills.

I’m looking forward to helping you to achieve your English language goals :)

My name is Fernando. I’m from São Paulo, Brazil. When I was looking for an English teacher I was trying to find someone who would have an excellent education and who was well-experienced in teaching - you know, there are lots of English teachers out there, but not many have proper qualifications to do it. I could see that Helen undoubtedly has those qualifications that I was looking for from her amazing profile. After having started classes with Helen, I’d realised that I found so much more than I was hoping for: the quality of the teaching that I was receiving exceeded all my expectations.

Helen is a very enthusiastic teacher, she truly believes in what she does. After only a few minutes of a class, she can recognize your weak point and structure the class in order to correct them. I was impressed with the way she prepared the classes and dealt with both my weaknesses and needs. I've learned a lot with her, especially in terms of the vocabulary improvement, phonetics and grammar points like word order, adjectives and so on. Therefore, I highly recommend Helen to everyone who wants to improve their English skills.

YUKIKO

Hi there!

I’m Yuki from Tokyo, Japan. I have been learning English with Helen for the last 3 months. I have been enjoying lessons with Helen and have been fond of her personality from the very beginning.

Before I found her on the Superprof website, I was in big trouble with studying English in Australia. The reason was that the teachers were too easy-going and inaccurate, so I used to speak and write with many mistakes. However, Helen is completely different. She is meticulous and accurate in every aspect of English, e.g., grammar, punctuation, pronunciation and vocabulary. Also, her positive, cheerful personality is wonderful. She never forgets to encourage a student throughout the lesson. Moreover, she is very understandable and flexible when it comes to changing the course of studies. I’m pretty sure that I am a student with one of the most challenging requirements ever! But she always listens to me and tries to adapt to my requests in quite a flexible way.

Since I started learning with Helen, I think my confidence in speaking has dramatically increased. She pointed out my weak points, even though I had not noticed them before. It was an eye-opening experience for me! It gives me more courage to express my thoughts. Moreover, it is the same in grammar. Helen corrects my grammar mistakes and gives me a chance to review the grammar structure. It is such a relief to finally use the correct grammar and vocabulary. I haven’t used it correctly for ages!

Initially, my goal was to get 6.5 overall in IELTS score, so I could start my studies at Griffith University. Before I started the lessons I had 6.0 and we had just 2 weeks until the exam. Despite having such a short time to prepare for the test, Helen gave me some very clear advice regarding every part of the exam. Moreover, she tailored the curriculum structure for me. Eventually, it worked amazingly well - I got 6.5 overall in IELTS after 2 weeks of preparation.

Now I am studying with Helen to get ready for my degree “Bachelor of Creative and Interactive Arts”, which will commence next month. Thanks to Helen’s teaching, I feel inspired to start my new learning path. I am a fortunate student who could find Helen as my English teacher!

Laura

Hi there! My name is Laura and I’ve been Helen’s student for around 6 months now. I usually have classes 2-3 times per week depending what my schedule allows. I wish I could have classes more often, but I work-full time and have two kids so 2-3 times per week is the best I can do at the moment.

Every week we have classes that I absolutely adore! Helen calls them visual thematic speaking sessions. They are truly remarkable, I’ve never had a chance to learn English in such an innovative and easy way using Google Slides before. I remembered and actually started using in my speech so many useful phrasal verbs and expressions, I’ve lost count! And just imagine I was convinced a had a terrible memory and didn’t have a knack for languages at all (another idiom that Helen taught me last week, by the way). And my grammar improved without me noticing it at first. I’m so proud of it. I see from my friends’ and colleagues’ comments that my new enhanced vocabulary and grammar make me sound like a native-speaker! It had been one of my greatest ambitions for a long time, but I hadn’t been able to fulfill it until I asked Helen to become my tutor. 

I work as a department head in a well-known consulting company, so my improved English skills help me a lot when it comes to getting my point across and avoiding any misunderstandings. Now I don’t have to explain anything twice, it saves me a lot of time.

Overall, I’m very satisfied with our classes. In addition, Helen is always full of beans and that makes learning so much easier! Even when I’m exhausted after an 8-hour working day, when I switch on my computer I know that Helen’s positive energy is going to transfer over to me.

I guess I could write for a really long time trying to mention all of my impressions. The bottom line is: thanks a lot, Helen! I’m so glad that I found you after so many failed attempts, can’t wait to improve my English further!

Takis

Helen is a great professional. The way she teaches English is very pedagogic and fun at the same time. We practice grammar through interesting conversations steadily increasing the complexity of vocabulary. She enriches the learnings by introducing native expressions which I can use in my English conversations with business colleagues and friends. Moreover, she prepares and personalizes every class, taking into account past studies, reviews and new topics to settle your knowledge and ensure your progress. In addition, she provides quite a few good examples to support each lesson and help you understand the sometimes tricky English grammar. To sum it all up, she really makes the difference, I'm learning a lot and I feel much more confident about my English since Helen has become my teacher.

Y
Yura

I have always been happy with our classes and Helen's way of teaching, really interesting and productive. Not only does she correct my mistakes during the classes, but also sends me recordings which point out what should I pay special attention too. Moreover, she records exercises designed to improve your pronunciation, when I get home I listen to them and repeat the sounds, practice them in front of the mirror. Some of my colleagues at work are crazy jealous cause my English is better than theirs now.

V
Veronica

Helen is a great English language teacher. She uses innovative ways of teaching, which always make me feel motivated. The lessons are adjusted to my needs and involve a variety of modern resources. Moreover, her methods help me to improve my pronunciation and incorporate new vocabulary. Apart from that, she is an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher who displays her extensive knowledge in every virtual meeting. Personally, I consider her as a supportive tutor. If you ask me, I wholeheartedly recommend her classes!

Daria

I like Helen’s way of teaching. Mixing up grammar material with vocabulary, sharing her experience of English learning, she made our classes saturated, dynamic and productive. However, what I liked the most were speaking clubs with Helen. Interesting topics, creative tasks and nice time spending with English practice. In general, my English level raised up tangibly after our lessons, as I attended classes willingly and gained pleasure from study.

A
Alfonso

Helen is a very qualified teacher, she tailors English classes to your needs and brings your skills to a whole different level. You won't get bored because she is very funny and she knows what to do in every moment to get your attention. In addition, she uses a very good method and always corrects your mistakes. Although she is a young teacher, her English knowledge is top-notch and because she speaks Spanish the learning curve is easier.

Maria

Helen is the best teacher that I have ever had. Her English classes are very complete because we continually go over the vocabulary we learnt in the previous class, practise the pronuntiation, do listenings, use collocations, etc. Moreover, her classes are really dynamic, we don’t stop, there is no time to loose. I feel that this is the first time that I am improving my English very fast! In a few months I have noticed that it has become much easier for me to understand a native accent. In addition, my speaking is better as well. Without any doubts Helen is the teacher that I have been looking for for years!

M
Mariano

Helen has a very modern and dynamic method of teaching English. She adapts classes according to your individual needs, from conversation to grammar, from idioms to phrasal verbs, giving you a whole picture of the English language. As a consequence, I have improved my English by using constantly the things I am learning and I became a more efficient speaker. Helen takes classes very seriously and I strongly recommend you to try having classes with her so you can see by yourself what I mean.
