Having worked both in England and abroad and done much corporate work, my social and conversational skills are excellent. I can teach on a one-to- one basis or in a classroom situation. I am happy to teach groups or individuals from beginner to advanced level English. I structure my lessons on the 4 skills of English- reading, writing, listening and speaking but am happy to adapt lessons to pupils' requirements.
Trained originally as a teacher, I then went into the world of professional music and have travelled and worked internationally. I have taught for over 35 years and my pupils have gained mainly merits and distinctions in exams. At school I excelled at English and having always loved languages- I have studied French, Italian and German - I have gained my CELTA qualification enabling me to teach EFL/ESOL. Having grown up in London, I am a native English speaker with clear pronunciation. I have a current DBS certificate.
I am a highly experienced, successful and enthusiastic teacher. Born in London and educated at a Grammar school where I excelled at English and Music, I am a native English speaker. Having studied speech and drama my accent is neutral and my spoken English is excellent.
To date my teaching has been in the field of music but I recently completed a CELTA course to enable me to move into the field of teaching English as I have always loved languages and have a knowledge of French, German and Italian. I now teach EFL on a one-to-one basis and to small groups of students.
I can inspire confidence and motivate students of all ages and abilities. My pupils’ A.B.R.S.M. exam results have been outstanding, predominantly Distinctions and Merits. Several of my young music pupils have won musical scholarships to Secondary schools and older students have gone on to music conservatoires. I carry the same motivation and enthusiasm into my EFL teaching.
I am an avid reader of English and foreign literature and I maintain my interest and wide knowledge of the current musical and theatrical world through regular attendance at opera, lieder recitals, concerts and plays.
I cover the 4 aspects of English in my lessons - reading, writing, speaking and listening but am happy to adapt lessons to the students' requirements. I am happy to work on spoken English and correct pronunciation - having studied speech and drama this is one of my fortés !
