I needed to improve my English and Natasha has helped me so much -she teaches me grammar, English literature, writing, speaking, listening, pronunciation (English accent classes) and vocabulary. Her lessons are fun and well structured and she is very patient and knowledgeable. I look forward to her classes each week and I have really noticed the difference in my English skills.

Adriana

English is my second language (I'm from Poland) and I wanted to improve so I came to Natasha for classes -both to improve my English accent and my writing.

​She has really helped me and I really enjoy all of the classes with her. She is very friendly. She is also professional and she knows a lot!

Finally I've found a writer and editor that I can trust! Natasha's work is excellent and she has never let me down -even when I've had very tight deadlines.

I've recommended her to several of my colleagues who have now also worked with her and all are very happy with the excellent work that she has produced for them. You can tell that she has an Oxford University English Masters degree (and a Journalism Masters degree) -top quality work!

Re Public Speaking classes: I had an important presentation coming up and I was very nervous about it. Natasha helped me a lot and my confidence improved a lot.

I was still a bit nervous on the day but Natasha had explained how I could use nervous energy to my advantage so I wasn’t as phased by this as I would have been and my nerves soon passed.
I still need to improve but I was very pleased with how it went -I think it is the best presentation I have done to date. Natasha is a very capable trainer and I don’t hesitate to recommend her.

She also drew upon her acting training and background and this added depth to her feedback and direction.

Natasha photographed and filmed my wedding and I am so extremely happy with the photographs she took and film she edited. She’s very professional, friendly and talented and goes the extra mile. The quality of her work and equipment is excellent. She also did a great family photo shoot for us. Definitely recommended.

"Natasha has taught my two children, Jennifer -now 17- and Nick -now 12- for the last two years. I am delighted to have met such a talented teacher -she is patient, fun, knowledgable and knows how to keep my kid's attention.

​She is always very good at explaining their progress and challenges to me.

They really look forward to their lessons with her and they are both now top students in their English classes whereas, before, Jennifer was really struggling and Nick was only average. I highly recommend her", Janice C

K
Kelly

​“I learnt such a lot working with Natasha and I am extremely grateful for all her help. I’ve done a few excellent full-day workshops with her and, whenever I have an important audition coming up, I try to book a coaching session, or a few.

​Her direction and analysis makes an enormous difference and, through working with her, I’ve gained so much confidence and become a much better actress. I also have much more success in auditions!” Kelly H.

Interview with Natasha (I'm English despite my name).

QUESTION 01 | 07
Do you speak this language fluently because of your origins or because a teacher inspired you to learn?
Natasha (I'm English despite my name). — I am a native English speaker and I went to an English boarding school followed by Oxford University (MA -English Language and Literature). I then did two further Masters degrees at top Universities in London. I've been teaching for 18 years.
QUESTION 02 | 07
Can you name a living, historical or fictional character that you think is the emblematic representative of the language's culture?
Natasha (I'm English despite my name). — Culture is constantly evolving and as it is, to some extent, subjective it is a hard concept to define (also for other reasons). The UK is very multi-cultural and English has been used worldwide... (so, no, I don't think there is a character that is 'the' emblematic representative of the language's culture).
QUESTION 03 | 07
Is there a typical word, phrase, tradition or behaviour in the language that you particularly like?
Natasha (I'm English despite my name). — I particularly like the word 'malarkey'...
QUESTION 04 | 07
Why does speaking this language matter to you?
Natasha (I'm English despite my name). — My life would be greatly inconvenienced if I couldn't speak English and my opportunities would be more limited if I couldn't speak it fluently and clearly.
QUESTION 05 | 07
What is the main difficulty in learning this language and what can help the process of learning?
Natasha (I'm English despite my name). — Each student will have their own things that they find difficult. I tailor lessons to help the individual that I'm working with. Obviously having a excellent teacher -(who is well educated, patient, interesting and prepared)- will help students enormously.
QUESTION 06 | 07
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your language learning or your days at school.
Natasha (I'm English despite my name). — The importance of clear pronunciation was reinforced to me by one of my students who happened to be a part-time Priest (as well a Doctor). He couldn't understand why his congregation kept laughing at him when he asked them to pick up their sheets (in order to sing the next hymn, etc) -turns out he kept asking them to "pick up your shits"!
QUESTION 07 | 07
What makes you a Superprof in language?
Natasha (I'm English despite my name). — Three Masters degrees:
MA -English Language and Literature -Oxford University, Pembroke College
MA -European Classical Acting -Drama Centre London, Central Saint Martins, London
MA -TV Journalism -City University, London

18 Years teaching experience -all ages and levels.

Hundreds of glowing references.

Friendly, patient, well-educated, prepared, interesting teacher and coach.

I teach:
English Language, English Literature, EFL, (IELTS, 7+, 11+, GCSE's, A Levels, AS, BA's, MA's, PhD's, etc),
Received Pronunciation/Standard British English,
Acting,
Public Speaking
and Interview Technique.
Also art classes for kids and air-dry clay groups for all ages.
(I teach online via video calls like Skype or in person in West Dulwich, London).

I also work as a writer and editor.

It is best for students wanting to know more about my experience to see my websites:

http://www.ClassesEnglish.com

http://www.ClassesActing.com

http://www.CoursesPublicSpeaking.com

http://www.WritersJournalists.com

If students let me know what it is they need and then I can provide more tailored examples as to how my experience relates to their needs. E.g: If a student is studying Shakespeare then it would be relevant for them to know that I have taught Shakespeare for years. I also wrote a dissertation about Shakespeare's works at Oxford University and also studied it during my European Classical Acting Masters degree -in fact we spent 6 weeks studying / performing at Shakespeare's Globe.
