References & Testimonials
Daria contacted me for lessons to help her prepare for the Cambridge CPE exam:
David Sweetnam is an awesome teacher. If you are doubting whether to contact him, do not! You will enjoy your time and improve your English! David has lots of experience teaching English to people from other countries, loads of English teaching materials and a unique approach to each of his students.
David helped me with preparing for the CPE which I successfully passed. I have had a lot of English teachers throughout my life but I consider David one of the best. He always tries to present material in a way that students enjoy it and get interested in the learning process. Learning English with David is fun and a great pleasure:)

Gabriela found me through a Google search which led her to Get Into English, the first student + client to do so:
A desperate need to improve my English brought me to David. I googled a few links to “one to one” English lessons. My priorities were the English speaker, flexible time schedule and professionalism. All of these I found in David’s case.
His web pages (www.getintoenglish.com) persuaded me that he’s the teacher I’m looking for! And after our first meeting the deal was done.
It’s almost a year since our co-operation started. I can confirm that everything I expected was fulfilled.
1. Is a native speaker (Australian);
2. Accepted having lessons during the weekends (either on Sat or on Sun);
3. And he’s not only prepared for our lessons, he even encourages me to improve my English through homework, his blog (see the aforementioned page) or the Guardian free lessons.
To have this testimonial more objective, I tried to think of some negative points regarding David. I have to disappoint you there are none.”
“English with David simply is a valuable investment.”

“David Sweetnam teaches his students rather than his material. He is one of the best teachers I have seen at analyzing the needs of his students and creating lessons and lesson materials specifically for them. This is the primary reason he excels as a language teacher and his students excel as language learners.”
- Ken Lackman (DELTA) Teacher Trainer and author, and director of Ken Lackman and Associates
