I liked Steve from the very first lesson. He’s a very open, responsive and professional teacher. Before talking to him I had a strong barrier in communicating to the British (for this reason I was looking for an English tutor ). I mingled freely with the Germans, French, Italians and other foreigners in English, but as soon as I saw the Englishman, I had some internal brake. I began to think and to choose each word, check the correctness of each phrase, etc. From this it became slow and clumsy. Now everything is much easier. He patiently listens to the mistakes I make in speech and corrects them correctly. However, he notes at the outset which ones I make more and tries to correct them. I have been studying for about 2 months and already feel enormous progress. In addition to studying with him, he is just nice to talk to. He is an interesting man with a great sense of humor.
