English Teacher with eight years experience available in London. CELTA (B Grade) Qualified.

Methodology

I believe I am a patient, encouraging and supportive tutor. I consistently communicate with my students and their parents or carers to ensure they receive the exact tuition they require. As a tutor I believe in fostering confidence, independence and critical thinking in my students- encouraging them to always take responsibility for their own learning.

Background

I have been tutoring privately for over two years, and before that taught in International Community School London as a secondary school classroom teacher. Prior to that I taught English as a Foreign Language in Seville Spain. I have taught students from all over the world, between the ages of 4 and 70 years old. In addition to being a teacher, I am a writer, storyteller and performer.
