I am a friendly, enthusiastic and approachable UK qualified teacher with a passion for language teaching and learning.
Having learned foreign languages myself (French, German and business Spanish) and having studied aspects of language learning as part of my teacher training, I understand how important it is to practice speaking the language with a native speaker.
I have grown up in a teaching environment and have over 9 years of teaching experience which has included placements within international schools in Europe (International School, Paphos, Cyprus and L’ École Primaire Notre-Dame, Belgium). I have also taught the national curriculum in the UK.
I particularly enjoy helping people to improve their English language skills and use my training to deliver enjoyable sessions, adapted to the individual needs of the learner. Remember I have learned foreign languages myself so I am able to empathize with you and I have the experience to know what is helpful and what is not!
I adapt to the needs of individual students and my courses include a variety of:
English language — Increase your fluency and confidence by practicing conversation skills as well as improving your grammar and forming your sentences like a native speaker.
English literature — Discuss and analyse a variety of texts. Choose a text that appeals to you and we will discuss and critically analyse together. I can also guide you through writing a critical response to literature.
Business English — I can help you to prepare for an English interview, I have a lot of experience with public speaking and I can give you all the tips and tricks of the trade!
Exam practise — I can help you prepare for the key elements of IELTS and the Cambridge exams
Phonics — Practise letters and sounds to develop your child’s pronunciation and reading skills
