I enjoy having the opportunity to teach people English and British culture. It is an enormous pleasure to find new and exciting ways to teach English that help the student to achieve their goals.

- How much do you charge?
I charge £30-00 per hour (plus £5-00 for travel). For two or more people, the rate is £20-00 per person per hour (plus £5-00 for travel).
- Where do you teach?
I teach in the student's home or place of work. I also teach in cafÃ©s or other spaces (such as parks or interesting London buildings) when it can be useful to further develop vocabulary, conversation skills and confidence.
I am very happy to teach via SKYPE if you are not able to meet in person.
I teach in Putney, Wandsworth, Battersea, Tooting, Roehampton, Balham, Clapham Junction, Hammersmith, Fulham, Shepherd's Bush, Richmond-upon-Thames, Barnes, Wimbledon, Morden, Kingston-upon-Thames, Croydon, Clapham Common, Brixton and Lambeth. I am prepared to travel across London to other boroughs.
- When are you available?
Monday to Friday during the day or evening.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach adults i.e. 16+. I enjoy teaching Beginners, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate and Upper Intermediate
- Do you have a personal message for students?
If you are keen to learn English and want lots of practice speaking to a native English speaker, I am sure that I can help you. I like to find interesting and exciting ways to learn English and sometimes I will suggest that we spend our hour in a cafÃ© or museum or a short walk in a park (if it isn't raining, of course). This way, you will develop your vocabulary and conversation skills as well as enjoying some different places in London.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have worked with adults in a language department of a college to multi-lingual groups of students at different levels. I teach Upper-Intermediate to European students in London within a language club. I teach beginners and Elementary English to refugees, either on a one-to-one basis in their homes, or in small groups for conversation. I lead 'walk and talk English conversation' groups in London, with students whose level is intermediate and above.
I previously worked in theatre and was an independent trainer in London for 15 years in the health sector.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes. I work with vulnerable adults too so I have an up-to-date enhanced DBS.
