How I shape our lessons will depend on why you're learning English and how you'll be using it. Once we've clarified that, I start from the premise that you won't stay motivated unless learning is fun. My job is to motivate you, as well as to teach you.
Before we start working together, I'll assess your learning style – and what you wish to show me of your personality. That way I'll be able to prepare lessons that will fly by – while achieving your objectives.
The methodology of my teaching varies with the student's level and focus, but I believe that an outgoing, enthusiastic, empathetic approach – with plenty of visual links and TPR as an aid to memory – work positively for most students.
My certification is from the TEFL Academy, so I'll bring a state-of-the-art toolbox of TEFL teaching techniques to our lessons together. You can rest assured that every element in your learning will be set on a firm foundation.
Let me help you to achieve your English language learning goals. With thirteen years' teaching experience – and a highly flexible student-centred approach – I am happy to shape our lessons to your needs.
Whether you want to develop your speaking and listening skills – or you need to hone your accuracy and grammar to pass an exam – your lessons with me will keep you well motivated and ticking off your objectives.
Multi-lingual myself, I have a keen understanding of the challenges faced by language learners – and a strong record of excellent results teaching both young people and adults.
Based in the UK, my qualifications include certification from the TEFL Academy, a Further Adult Education Teaching Certificate and a BA and PhD in Archaeology.

NATIVE SPEAKER TEFL AND TESL TEACHER
Professional, multi-lingual, full of energy, creativity and enthusiasm,
I adapt easily to the needs and requirements of a wide range of
students. My grammar and writing background is strong, but I am
equally happy to concentrate on building vital speaking and listening
skills. Business English and exam preparation are among my areas of
expertise. My concern is to make learning enjoyable, while guiding
students to achieve their goals.
With thirteen years’ teaching experience, I have achieved equally
strong results with high powered executives and young people.
