"The value of education... is not the learning of many facts, but the training of the mind to think" Albert Einstein. I love learning and I love education and the way I teach is to help students to think for themselves. I always say that it is ok to make mistakes, because every mistake is an opportunity to learn something. With me, you will learn to use your mind to think and you will feel safe to make mistakes and to learn through your mistakes. I teach 1-1 which means that I create a learning programme for you that suits your needs and your goals.
I am a native English speaker with ten years of experience teaching English (ESOL/EFL/EAL) to adults and secondary school children from all over the world. I teach ESOL classes to adults in Rochester, Kent and I teach students 1-1, including IELTS. I am passionate about languages and about learning and I love seeing students make progress and become confident in English. I also studied French and German, so I understand the highs and lows of learning languages, as well as teaching them.
