I like to balance speaking, listening, writing and listening skills as I believe they're all important to helping you become a well-rounded English Language speaker. I love grammar and think it's really important but I also love conversational English and like to help my students achieve a natural sounding proficiency of language.
It's important to me my lessons are fun and engaging so the format can change. It may also change according to the language area being studied and the materials being used.
It is important to me that you reach your desired goals. In this light, you tell me what you want to know or what you like, and I'll help you achieve it :)
I've taught a range of levels from beginner to advanced and of a range of ages. To me, language learning should be fun and relevant to the learner. This is why all my lessons are tailored to the needs and interests of the learner. I understand that language learning can be embarrassing or nerve-racking sometimes which is why it's really important to me that my learners feel comfortable at all times - there is no such thing as a silly question! I have a good sense of humour and have studied the cognitive processes of language learning and maintaining linguistic systems. I believe this understanding helps me to be an attentive and supportive teacher. I provide regular feedback and encouragement and am open to receiving feedback from the learner so that I can best support their needs.

Olivia is an amazing tutor. She really helped me build my confidence in all aspects of the english language. She really stuck by me and was so patient at every stage. You can tell she is passionate about what she does which makes learning so much more enjoyable!
I would highly recommend Olivia to anyone looking to learn english or further their skills in the language.
I worked together with Olivia in Brighton, UK and I recommend her highly. She is an inquisitive teacher, with a deep understanding of student needs. She can tailor lessons so that they are appropriate for student needs, as well as making them exceptionally fun and memorable. Olivia's explanation of grammar and language is very clear and she always has very creative ideas which she brings to the class. You will be in excellent hands if you choose Olivia to be your tutor.
Olivia is a supportive tutor with an excellent command of the English language. Both of my children have had tutoring with her for the last 2 years (from age 6 to 10). Her lessons are engaging, informative and fun. The extra support is especially useful for my daughter who has learning difficulties. I would highly recommend Olivia for any level of learning.
Olivia is very patient and takes time to make sure I understand what I am learning. Thank you!
