Language graduate and experienced EFL/EAL tutor based in Morley, Leeds.

Methodology

I centre my lessons around the individual needs of the student, and link it to the requirements of the school curriculum or the learning aims of the student. I use interactive content with challenging elements whilst maintaining an element of fun and enjoyment.
My classes are aimed at most ages and talents, whether that be secondary school pupils who want to catch up with their classmates, students looking to improve their social and academic English or older students aiming to feel more connected with life in Leeds.

Experience

I am a linguist with experience of working as an English language tutor in Austria. I have worked with individuals and groups to prepare them for exams and improve their spoken and written English. I am currently working as an EAL Mentor in Leeds. I can bring these skills and a passion for language education to improve your spoken English and comprehension of the English Language.
