« I know Jenni from playing badminton with her during her stay in France a few years ago and we became friends from that period. Jenni also gave our company english lessons during 2 years. She was well prepared, organized and she helped us a lot to improve our English (grammar / sentences / vocabulary...) during that period. She could also help us when we did not know the meaning of things as she is also fluent in French. I recommend Jenni because she is calm, patient, joyfull and...kind of funny too !! »

Methodology

I plan each lesson around the student's level, age and specific needs. I try to make the grammar fun and the conversation topics interesting and real! I use new, creative activities so that each lesson is different and engaging. I am a grammar expert and I have experience explaining grammar rules and exceptions.

Experience

I have a Bachelor's degree in European Studies and Modern Languages (French and Italian) from the University of Bath in the UK. I also hold the CELTA and TELF English language teaching qualifications. I am now completing a Master's degree in Intercultural Studies with French.

I know Jenni from playing badminton with her during her stay in France a few years ago and we became friends from that period.

Jenni also gave our company english lessons during 2 years. She was well prepared, organized and she helped us a lot to improve our English (grammar / sentences / vocabulary...) during that period. She could also help us when we did not know the meaning of things as she is also fluent in French.

I recommend Jenni because she is calm, patient, joyfull and...kind of funny too !!
