Learn practical, usable English for school/business to everyday life from a highly certified and passionate native speaker

Methodology

I'm a person who loves to share the English language with others, especially if it can help others express their ideas, thoughts and passions as they pursue their goals. I'm happy to work with individuals from 12 years of age and up. I am able to tailor lessons to the learner's style so that the time we spend can be used to focus on English and achieving your goals.

Background

I have been teaching and coaching individuals for 8 years. I have taught in classrooms with up to 20 students as well as doing one on one tutoring. I have had the pleasure to work in extra-curricular learning centres, in high school in the UK and with adult English language students in Toronto, Ontario.
