CELTA-qualified EFL teacher in London offering conversational (and more!) classes to adults and teenagers in British English.

Methodology

My degree is in French and Russian, so I'm well acquainted with learning languages myself. I mainly teach adults over 18, although I have experience in teaching younger learners as well. My methodology for teaching is to split lessons between reading, writing, speaking, listening and grammar, although each lesson will of course have some element of all of these. I base my lessons on established EFL textbooks such as Straightforward and Cutting Edge, and I make use of and adapt materials from the British Council and BBC Skillswise as well.

Experience

I am a newly-certified EFL teacher with about 7 months of experience teaching general English. I've taught one-on-one and also in classes of up to 8 students, focussing on building the language skills necessary to navigate day-to-day life in an English-speaking country.
