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.
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.
You can pay fees by means of bank transfer once a month.
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.
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.
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.
One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Noel will plan your first lesson with care.
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.
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%.
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
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!
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.
Perfect! Noel é um excelente professor, muito atencioso, prestativo, divertido e pontual. As aulas são ótimas, o aluno fala em inglês durante toda a aula e Noel vai fazendo as correções e sugestões de como certa expressão poderia ser dita e quais as formas mais comuns de expressá-la. Noel está sempre muito preocupado com o desempenho do aluno e sempre disponível para tirar qualquer tipo de dúvida, mesmo depois das aulas. A quantidade de material que Noel passa pros alunos também é enorme, dicionários, gramáticas, aplicativos que ajudam na memorização de palavras e expressões, sites que ajudam com a pronúncia e etc.
I like teaching Andressa. She prepares for every lesson. She tries hard in the lessons and really wants to improve her English. There is a positive atmosphere in the lessons and this helps a lot. She's good fun. She learns quickly. It's definitely a positive and enjoyable experience.
Perfect! Noel is a excelent teacher! Very patient and available to solve my doubt. He worries about my learning and teaching very well. I really recommend Noel!
Yasmin is great to teach. She's always prepared for the lessons and works hard to improve. I don't have any doubt that she will improve if she continues studying as she always does. Definitely a positive experience.
Perfect! Noel tem um método único, que faz fixar as palavras e estruturas em inglês! Recomendo!
Felipe prepared very well for the lessons and tried really hard to improve his English. He's curious about the language. He asks a lot of questions and that's important. I enjoyed teaching him.
Perfect! Noel is a good teacher... He has beem teaching for 6 months and his methodology is awesome. I strongly recommend him for teaching everyone.
I like teaching Andre. He prepares very well for every lesson, and tries hard to improve. He is improving due to his own hard work. I have no doubts that he will continue to improve in the future. It's a positive experience all round.
Perfect! Recomendo o Noel a quem quer desenvolver a conversação em inglês e sair do nível intermediário, porque 80% da aula é o aluno quem fala sobre algum episódio de série ou filme que assistiu, numa linguagem informal, como se conversasse com um amigo. Nos outros 20% Noel corrige os erros e dá recomendações de melhoria, seja de vocabulário, fluência, gramática. É uma excelente forma de aprender.
It's a pleasure to teach Sabrina. She comes to the lesson well prepared and tries hard. She's a really nice person to teach and I enjoy the lessons very much. A positive experience from beginning to end.
Perfect! Noel é um grande professor. É muito organizado, oferece ótimas sugestões de material, é pontual e muito disponível.
É exatamente o que eu buscava em um professor.
Erika reads a lot and this is clearly reflected in her ability to speak English. We know from academic research that reading broadens a student's knowledge of new words and deepens a student's knowledge of known words. It's a pleasure to teach her.
My name is Samuel Santiago. I'm from Brazil and I have English Classes with Teacher Noel. He is an excellent person and a fantastic professional. I like a lot of his learn methodology and didactic. If you need learning English, Noel is "The guy"! I indicate!
O Noel é um professor incrível, muito querido, educado e está sempre com bom humor.

Além disso, possui total domínio do idioma, auxiliando muito na gramática, pronúncia e expansão do vocabulário.

Noel is a very good professor.
He had different approaches to teach his students, depending on their level and goals.
Noel is also very easygoing and a nice person to talk, very knowledgeable and with lots of resources to use with the student.
I would definitely recommend him.
Noel is a very skilled teacher, he knows how to treat any situation in the classes, his knowledge, methods and techniques are really effective. He has been helping me a lot to improve my capacity to read, write and speak English.
I started taking classes in June'19 and I'm loving it! Noel is helping me to improve my English and to feel more confident with it. Thank you so much.
Noel é um excelente professor, muito didático e tem muito conhecimento sobre a língua e metodologia de ensino. Ele possui um método de ensino incomum e ao mesmo tempo fascinante.
