My name is Darren Greenwood and I am the Founder & Head Teacher here at EnglishWD Academy. I provide more than your average English lesson. I teach my students specific skills that they can use in their everyday lives, work, business ventures, or living and travelling abroad.
All of my English classes teach students new vocabulary, writing techniques, reading comprehension and an array of verbal and non-verbal communication skills.
My classes are perfect for people who want to improve their English and want to develop themselves personally and professionally.
"I talked about how I’ve been struggling with business English at work, and he gave me a piece of advice that was super helpful. I would love to take his lecture again which would definitely improve my English skills effectively." - Mana Tanaka, ESL Student
Our Classes Provide
Personalized Lesson Plans
This approach to teaching recognizes that not all students learn the same way or at the same pace, and therefore, teachers must adjust their teaching methods to better suit individual students.
Personalized lesson plans are tailored to each student's learning style, interests, and abilities.
Weekly homework is an essential part of a student's learning process. It helps them to reinforce the concepts taught in class and develop their skills.
Homework assignments can include reading, writing, problem-solving, research or any other exercises that are designed to enhance the learning experience.
Progress tracking is an essential aspect of achieving goals and maintaining motivation.
It allows individuals to keep track of their progress and see how far they have come since they started. We offer level tests to see how much you've improved after taking classes with us.
This approach offers personalized attention and a customized curriculum to meet the specific needs and goals of each student.
With individual coaching, students can focus on areas they struggle with, whether it be grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, or comprehension.
