I started teaching English casually, to friends and acquaintances, about eight years ago. While helping them out, I discovered I loved teaching. I decided to make it my full-time job about four years ago, after gaining my TEFL certificate, and I teach one-to-one both on and offline.
My other certificates include a Cambridge English Teachers Grammar Course, Teaching Young Learners and Teaching with Limited Resources.
I have taught learners of all levels, including children, in a variety of different environments.
My lessons make use of lots of different materials, such as videos, audio recordings, songs, articles and textbooks, so we can build all your skills. I have experience helping students prepare for the IELTS exam as well as others, and I also offer an essay correction service if writing is your main focus.
I understand the challenges my students face because I have recently started learning French myself after several years without studying it!
My interests outside of teaching include animals (I live with two dogs and a cat), making jewellery, politics and current affairs.
General Information About My Classes
My 'Quick Hit' series of classes consist of 15-minute sessions for students on the go! If you'd like to practise English in your lunch break, when you get to the office early or any time you have a short window in your schedule, they're for you. You can take a conversation class or boost your vocabulary in just 15 minutes a day!
I also offer lots of IELTS preparation classes: I have been helping people prepare for this exam for several years and I can help you too. :)
'English with British Culture' is brilliant for students who have an interest in the UK, or who are planning to come here for work and study. Through a series of mostly video-based lessons, you'll be introduced to British idioms, attitudes and celebrated people.
