« Penny taught spoken English for 2 years both privately and at a French university to students of all ages from pre-school to 80 year olds. She made the lessons both fun and informative. As a person, she is empathetic, calm, friendly - and very reliable. Penny is my daughter - but that aside, I have no hesitation in recommending her if you want to improve your English, whether business or conversational. »

TEFL Qualified British English Speaker offering classes for mother tongue & second language speakers

Methodology

I like to teach in a relaxed, informal way, as I think the best way to learn a language is to relax and have fun with it. I can adapt the subjects to your interests and needs.
I like to have discussions, using support from newspaper articles or videos, and changing discussion topics each session. We can work with texts, exercises or just conversation depending on what you require.

Experience

I grew up in Britain, where I attended school and university, before moving for France for a few years. I have studied French & Spanish, so understand the complexities and nuances of learning a foreign language, and I'm passionate about helping others learn to speak fluently.
I spent two years teaching English as a second language in a French university, and I have experience teaching large groups and face to face lessons.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £2
