I enjoy using the direct method during my classes where using as much English as possible is the main goal! I also believe in the benefit of immediate error correction, as well as teaching some methodology along the way. It is necessary to understand the function of a language so you can compare it to your native tongue. Practice and using English, especially when you're fully immersed in a country like England, is the best way to learn in my opinion.
I am a CELTA certified teacher with experience teaching both children and adults. I have over a year of experience and love to create fun and diverse lessons just for you where we can talk about an array of topics!
Cancellation policy: If you cancel the lesson within 24 hours of the lesson period, then you will be invoiced for the full lesson, but not for travel time. If you cancel/reschedule within 48 hours of the lesson period, you will not be charged.
I only require half of the pay for travel time, as this is the average cost of a round trip ticket from Bury St. Edmunds to Cambridge, the furthest distance I'm willing to travel for lessons.
What you will read below are my qualifications and experience for the job I seek: an English Language Teacher. What you will not read is my absolute adoration for teaching. The time, effort, and love that I put into each lesson because I truly care that with each lesson taught, everyone walks away learning something new. You will not read about the smile that is put on my face every time I walk into a classroom, nor the rapport that I have with students. What cannot be seen on a page is my guarantee that my heart, passion, and soul will be brought to every lesson I deliver.
