Student testimonials

David has an ability to encourage students to push their own limits. He is a great motivator and the best partner for your learning process if you want to achieve real results. He facilitated me to work hard and improve my weakest spots in English. Focusing on all language skills, adjusting lessons to the individual needs of students and constantly providing invaluable feedback was just what I needed to successfully pass the English proficiency level.

I had online lessons with David from Progress English Bristol to prepare for the OET exam. I am very grateful to David for his professionalism, organized approach and the self-confidence that he instills in every student. As a result, I received the grade B I needed in the exam.

I cannot thank David enough and that's why l highly recommend him as a teacher and of course Progress English.
