After some time assessing your particular requirements as a student, I will raise your overall competency by coaching you through a mixture of communicative skill-based tasks (speaking, listening etc) and expanding your knowledge of core content (vocabulary including phrasal verbs, advanced grammar forms etc).
I encourage topic-based thinking and work to find subjects students can build a repetoire on for social and exam-based purposes.
When your confidence is strong enough, I encourage real-world practice (usually politely inquiring if a member of the public would be happy to engage in some speaking practice and then discussing issues/providing feedback afterwards).
I have taught English abroad and in the UK for four years including work in China, Vietnam and Italy. I have a UK university Bachelor's degree in Humanities and a Master's degree in Cultural and Critical Theory. I have taught all four skills for the IELTS exam previously and Business English.
