A fun and idiomatic speaker, love history and taught English in Shanghai, China

Methodology

I am British and based in London. I have a degree in History and a TEFL certificate and have previously taught in Shanghai. I teach Chinese adult students over 16 years old in a group setting (max of 6 ) or 1 on 1. I use a PPP (present, practice , produce ) model and use task based learning . I am a fun, vibrant, patient teacher who encourages students to push themselves and help them to achieve their life goals in English.

Experience

I have taught English since 2003 . Over the past year I have taught a range of students ranging from 1 on 1 to class sizes of 30. I have students who have gone on to pass IELTS and also completed English language courses that took them from basic levels of English to fluency.
