I guide students through the learning process while generating full awareness and understanding of the subject of study. My lessons are bespoke and accurately designed to best suit individual needs. I target specific problem areas and aim to ensure the best possible learning outcomes. I am fluent in several European languages; being a linguist myself, I'm familiar with most aspects of language learning. I like to adopt innovative teaching methodologies to allow students to enjoy themselves and learn more about the world around them while improving their English language skills.
I only teach online and offer a free 30-minute trial on first bookings.
I am a qualified English language teacher and former legal professional with over nine years’ teaching experience. I can teach English for a variety purposes including: KS3, GCSE, SATS, English as a foreign language, GCSE English language equivalency exams, academic writing, Cambridge ESOL exam preparation (IELTS, FCE, CAE, CPE, etc) and QTS literacy skills tests.
I'm also experienced in delivering writing classes, Business English courses and job-interview skills booster sessions. I can provide support with literacy skills, grammar and vocabulary, and I can assist with degree studies in English and Modern foreign Languages.
I adopt a 24-hour cancellation policy. Lessons cancelled with less than a 24-hour notice will be charged at either 50% or full price, depending on the circumstances.
