Before committing to a programme of study it makes sense that you will want to be happy with your choice of teacher. An important part of our service is to provide you with the CVs and profiles of several teachers so that you will be able to choose the teacher that best suits your needs. It is important that the chemistry between teacher and students is positive to ensure a successful learning experience. With this is mind ET offers a free trial lesson so you can be sure you are comfortable with the teacher you have chosen.
At English Today, we sincerely believe that the end of a period of study does not mean the end of our relationship with our students. We welcome continued contact with past students through our blog.

Dennis PerezEnglish Teacher
For as long as I can remember I have been a bit geeky about language. I love learning new languages and helping others learn more effectively. When I was pursuing an acting career, I always felt that my words were my tools so improving my vocabulary was important to me. How ifferent peopleuse language to communicate is something that I will never stop pondering. It fascinates me.

Sally Arianita DewiEnglish Teacher
My philosophy of teaching begins first and foremost with student’s goals and expectations in learning English. My teaching is structured to meet those ends. I believe that the teacher’s role is to analyze learner’s needs and develop their linguistic and communicative competence, to meet both their present and future needs, and to equip them to participate fully in a world of changing knowledge.
