English Teacher of 27 years experience of all levels and age groups


I mainly use a 'task-based' approach. I have pre-task, main task and post-task activities planned to ensure that I work on the relevant skills -speaking, listening, reading and writing. I always embed grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation training to work on the student's accuracy and fluency.


I am an experienced English language teacher of 27 years. I have taught thousands of students across all sectors - schools, colleges and universities. All of my learners have achieved excellent grades. I use a variety of techniques in my teaching.
