Thinking of taking English classes online and need the services of an experienced and flexible English teacher? You have come to the right place!
Your English Teacher
I’m Richard. I am the creator of Britlish, the best place online to learn and practice English. I am an experienced and qualified English Teacher and I have given thousands of online English classes by Skype to hundreds of students in dozens of countries since 2006.
VOIP and other Technology
I mainly use Skype for online classes, but I also use Zoom, or Google Hangouts, depending on my student’s preferences or access to the VOIP systems in their country. In the Middle East, in countries like the UAE, Zoom can now be used.
I also use Google Docs as my interactive whiteboard and to tutor student during writing classes.

Experience and Commitment to English
English is my life and I can think of no better way to spend my time than teaching it to others. I am also a professional writer, publishing my first article in 1984, and the unbroken thread throughout my working life has always been the English language. I can’t imagine a better job than that of teaching English to students across the world. It is a privilege to meet and to teach so many wonderful people in so many countries. And all of this without ever once having to step outside my own home. The benefits of technology!
Specialised in Pronunciation
My speciality is British English pronunciation and the IPA chart. I have been teaching this to students and teachers for over a decade and have also written an Interactive Pronunciation Course which you can find in the Britlish Library and which will help you to learn the chart, and also to reproduce the correct sounds for each of the 44 symbols. Never again will you be afraid that you are going to mispronounce a word.
I am flexible and adaptable and always keep my student’s needs uppermost in my thoughts. As far as I am concerned, it’s my job to tailor my teaching to my students’ learning needs as I guide them along on the exciting journey that is the English language.
I love to teach and my students love to learn. It’s the perfect combination!
Types of Classes
Every student has their own motivation for learning English. For some, it is simply the pleasure of mastering the language. For others, their careers may depend on it. Whatever a student’s reasons, I tailor my lessons to their needs. Click here to find out more about my classes and methodology.
Students can choose from a range of times during the week for their classes. You can see my calendar here.
Several of my students have been kind enough to write what they think about my classes. You can read their comments here.
