James Coates


My name is James.

I am a native English speaker.

I provide English training to learners of all levels, on-site and online, to help them communicate more effectively.

What my students say


“I can only say good things”

Friendly, empathetic, attentive. Good adaptation with your student. Denis


“Tout se passe bien

The conversations are interesting and the pedagogical approach is good. Véronique


“Bad taste for Marmite!”

I learned more useful things in 7 months than all those years in French school! Benjamin

What I do

Face-to-face lessons

On-site language training tailored to specific needs in business and general English, or a combination of both.

Remote lessons

Phone or video lessons give a valuable opportunity to practise language and gain real-world experience.

Translation and proof-reading

Authentic written English in promotional materials creates a good first impression, builds confidence, and improves visibility. 

Professional experience

I have ten years’ experience of training in-company, in language schools and in higher education.

Before training to teach English to adults in 2010 (Cambridge Celta), I worked as a graphic designer, web developer and systems administrator for over fifteen years.
