Experienced English teacher - experience internationally and a number of age groups.

Methodology

I believe that everyone has the right to an education. I make my lessons fun, and match your needs! Whether it be basic English, or a need to work at a high, functioning level in other subjects, my background will help you hit your goals.

Background

Hi,

I am a qualified English Primary School teacher who has 5 years of experience teaching. I have worked in a number of different countries, including Qatar, Vietnam and Dubai. I also have vast experience in teaching the Cambridge education programme. I have taken children with minimal English experience and helped them become fluent. I also have helped adult learners develop confidence in speaking English - ensuring that they have skills necessary to help them communicate in English, whether it be for work or their own understanding.

I can help your child with their SATS preparation, whether it is this school year or next.
