Experienced and Enthusiastic English Language Teacher with degree from Cambridge, offering online tutoring

Methodology

I can teach all areas of English: English as a second language, English exam preparation for English learners, as well as English-language literature up to A-Level.

For English langauge I like to focus on the four main core skills: listening, reading, speaking and writing and for literature I take the same approach as I was taught at the Univesity of Cambridge: close analysis of text and contextual considerations to come towards main ideas elicited in the text.

Background

I am a Cambridge-educated English language teacher, with a background in educational publishing and currently an English teacher in a French school overseas.

I spent over six years as an editor for the biggest educational publisher in the world, before moving into vocational publishing.

I then spent a year as a communications and editorial specialist before moving into English Language Teaching full time.

I have been teaching English at primary level for the past three years in a French school and can also assist with primary-level french work.
