English Teacher (TEFL Qualified) with a background in performing arts, TV and Film

Methodology

My teaching method is entirely based on the individual student. As no two students are alike I will adapt my teaching to that student. Some students prefer to listen and sit still, so those lessons will be teacher-based. Some prefer to be heard and move around, those lessons will be student-based.
I believe in nurturing the strengths of a student first before tackling the weaknesses. This instils confidence and allows the student to grow and achieve results at a greater pace.

Background

I am a qualified (TEFL) English Teacher with 2 years teaching experience.
My background is in acting, dance and singing.
30 yrs of singing, 20 yrs acting and 15 yrs of dance experience.
I owned and operated Hollywood Dance/Drama School for 6 yrs, teaching 4-17 yr olds, I also taught adults.
I currently teach English as a foreign language.
