CELTA qualified English teacher offering specifically tailored courses in Cornwall or online

Methodology

I am trained in and utilise the communicative approach, working on using functional language in real life situations, so students can achieve rapid results. My lessons are fun and will be structured around the interests and passions of the student - no 2 lessons are the same! I also use techniques such as task-based learning to work on mini-projects where they are useful to students.

Experience

I have 5 years of experience giving private and group lessons to hundreds of students from all over the world, including Europe, South America and Asia, both online and in class. I specialise in creating personalised courses to engage students and have a track record in achieving success in relation to academic targets such as IELTS.
