ONE-TO-ONE – ALL LANGUAGES, ALL LEVELS
I’ve been an independent adult language learner for over thirty years and I love to share my knowledge and experience of methods, materials, strategy and tactics to enthuse you along a path that works for you. Let’s get focussed on what you need to do to get where you want to be.
The format is a one-to-one 50-minute language learner mentoring session (live via Skype or Zoom) (price by agreement, including email follow-up).
You may be unsure where to start as a beginner in your language learning or in need of some help at an intermediate or advanced level. You may be seeking confirmation that you’re on the right track or be looking to try something different to help you make progress.
After our first session, you may be ready to roll. You may also decide that you’d like an ongoing language mentoring (a series of five or ten personalised sessions, with full email support).
Get in touch via email gareth [at] howtogetfluent [dot] com. Let me know what’s challenging you and I’ll get back to you soonest.
What my mentoring clients are saying
“I can’t thank you enough for helping me steer this ship! You have done a masterful job in charting the first leg of our journey.
What a light-bulb moment for me!… This provides two pivotal intangibles: confidence and a sense of accomplishment, both of which will be tested on this journey. I’m encouraged I can start bolstering them now… I look forward to implementing your roadmap.”
“Great experience with Dr P. Despite a 30-year history with German, I’ve never been able to unlock the keys to mastering a second language.
He was able to address my challenges immediately and create and present a powerful, common-sense, effective pathway to language acquisition, one that is producing immediate and rapid results for me.
Our one-hour consultation was thoroughly professional and highly informative. Dr P provided me with a four-page meeting summary and specific recommendations. I highly recommend his methodologies and language learning approaches. I wish we’d crossed paths a long time ago. I’d probably be onto my fourth language by now!”
“I reached out to Dr P because I was starting from absolute scratch in learning Basque. His blog posts had offered me great starting points, but I really wanted to hit the ground running with more structure tailored to my schedule.
We had a very lively Zoom session in which he was very generous with time, resources, and suggestions. Afterward, a follow-up email gathered everything I tried to scribble in a notebook with even more tailored suggestions and a bevvy of useful links.
Above and beyond getting me started with actionable steps to start today, Dr P also made suggestions for new resources, and the appropriate stage to incorporate them, which leaves me feeling like I have so much growth to look forward to. I am now embarking on learning Basque with an immense amount of motivation and enthusiasm, and am really grateful for Dr P’s time and expertise!“
