Perhaps you’re facing the CPE exam for the first time and you’re concerned about your performance in the Speaking paper.
Or you’ve taken the exam before and didn’t quite achieve the advanced grade you need.
Perhaps you're confident your English is good enough and you want exam practice before the big day.
Or you’re not sure which areas of English you need to work on to make progress. It could be that
If you’re already studying CPE in a class you’ll know it’s very difficult for your teacher to give you the personalised help you need - your teacher has many other students to support.
Perhaps you don’t have any qualified, experienced private tutors in your area that you trust to help you.
‘CPE Speaking One-to-One’ offers you the chance to work with me Peter, in one or more Skype lessons to receive support aimed specifically at your needs. You'll be able to learn the areas you need to work on, and have the chance to develop these areas over the course of our meetings.
There are three subscription levels, depending on your needs:
Ideal for students starting their CPE preparation. Get an idea of your strengths and weaknesses and experience a CPE-style Speaking test so you know what to expect on the big day.
Perfect for students who have the exam approaching, want regular practice tests AND want to learn our effective strategies to cope with all sections of the Speaking exam.
For students with some time before the exam who want a course designed around their needs AND want to practise the strategies in our popular self-study course.
The course starts from the date you make your order. You have 6 months from the date of your order to complete your Skype interviews.
You'll need to have access to a workstation with a good internet connection and a Skype account. You will have the best experience during the interview if you use headphones and a mic rather than relying purely on the audio system on your computer.
Yes, each interview comes with its own lesson that you can download and use to prepare. If you want to get the most from your time with me I strongly recommend completing the exercises before we meet. These will offer tips and strategies to help you perform at your best during the interview.
That's a very good question! As I mentioned above, I have well over 20 years teaching experience many of which were spent supporting students preparing for exams. I was also commissioned by Harper Collins to co-author and be sole author of several exam practice books.
Finally, I am usually able to quickly build a good rapport with students and contribute to creating the kind of working relationship that will lead to you doing your very best during our time together.
