Learning online

Many companies have taken their services online in over the last two years, but online language learning is nothing new. I have been providing online English lessons for language learners across Europe and beyond since 2012 and I enjoy seeing my learners grow in knowledge and confidence as they work with me online.

I also offer a range of language services, such as translation, proofreading, and presentation skills. If you are interested in these, visit my other site, EwK Services.

One-to-one lessons

One of the great things about one-to-one lessons is that I can design them to help individual learners. This includes things such as

  • Language level – making sure the content is not too easy or difficult;
  • Learning style – presenting information in a way that is easiest for the learner to take in;
  • Learning goals – taking into consideration why someone wants to learn English and what they will use it for;
  • Additional or special educational needs – I already have experience working with a range of blind students. My own experience as a learner has also taught me that one way of doing things does not work for everyone, so I’m open to looking at solutions that we can put in place to help learners with other access needs;
  • Language needs – most of my lessons are held in English, but if learners need me to explain things in German, I can do that. This is particularly useful in beginner or grammar classes.

I offer lessons using a range of services including Zoom, Teams, Facetime, LinkedIn video, Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, and Skype.

Customer feedback

Online Business-Englisch lernen mit der Muttersprachlerin Kirsty Major macht wirklich Spaß. Schnell überwindet man die Angst beim Sprechen in einer Fremdsprache. Fundiert, humorvoll und im Dialog versteht man auch die Grammatik der härtesten „If-Clauses“. Und wenn das Vokabular fehlt oder eine Formulierung schwer fällt, Kirsty spricht und versteht auch sehr gut deutsch. „English with Kirsty“ kann ich absolut jedem empfehlen, der international arbeitet.
Sebastian Siebert, Strategic Designer

“Kirsty ist toll! Ich bin so froh, dass ich sie gefunden habe: Ihr Englischkurs ist nur für mich. Im Einzelunterricht, noch dazu mit einer Muttersprachlerin, lerne ich viel mehr als in anderen Kursen. Weil ich einfach mal frei sprechen kann. Kirsty und ich besprechen ausführlich alle meine Fragen, ohne dabei andere SchülerInnen zu langweilen. Aussprache, Grammatik, Kommasetzung – nichts kommt zu kurz. Dabei ist Kirsty immer wertschätzend, was ich sehr genieße. Unsere Gespräche über Gott und die Welt sind außerdem sehr bereichernd. Ich bin absoluter Fan von Kirsty und will nie wieder aufhören. Danke, Kirsty!”
