Lessons & Courses

There are two broad areas that can be covered either separately or in combination, depending on the needs of the student:

General English – covers all aspects of everyday English usage including conversational and functional language.

Business English – focuses on specialised language related to your work, for example writing emails, telephone conversation, language used in meetings or for presentations.

Over the years I’ve written many English Learning/Teaching resources which I share on my blog, Clare’s ELT Materials Blog.

In the Resources Archive you can find the lessons and materials I’ve written as downloadable PDF files. They are mainly for intermediate or advanced level.

I had a fantastic 12h English course by phone call with Clare Catchpole early 2018! She has helped me to feel more confident over the phone and she provided me some very practical tips that I use in my every day life. After Clare’s intensive training, I’ve been able to enter a prestigious executive-MBA school and I would like to thank her once again for her very effective training. I wish her every success in her future career.

The English lessons with Clare were all very interesting; I made real progress in understanding and speaking in discussions; as the courses went on, I felt more comfortable speaking English; vocabulary and grammar were studied at each lesson, with focus and clarity.
I had a great deal of pleasure working with Clare, who restored my confidence and allowed me, after six months of lessons, to feel more comfortable speaking English.

Clare is a positive, diplomatic woman who is committed to her profession and knows how to communicate. She adapted to my level and my needs and helped me considerably to make progress in English! Thanks to her.
