Early years/ Primary school teacher, with international experience teaching English as a second language.

Methodology

I believe that learning is most effective when it is done through play, therefore the sessions will be interactive, engaging and memorable. I base my teaching on individualised assessments, after an initial meeting with parents and the child we will decided on an individualised programme of learning using teaching strategies that work well for your child.

Experience

I have taught English in the UK, Dubai and China primarily with Early years age children 3-6, however my degree in 'Primary education, with art and QTS' enables me to teach the British curriculum up to age 12. I specialise in developing confidence and fluency in children's spoken language.
