Passionate English language teacher with 14 years' experience (general, business, IELTS), based in Edinburgh

Methodology

I've taught all levels and all ages. I like teaching English mainly with authentic communication and by practising through role-play getting as close as possible to real life situations. Most importantly motivation must be high so I make sure lessons are really fun!

Experience

I'm a British native speaker of English, hold a master's degree (MSc) in Language teaching and a CELTA, and have over 14 years' experience teaching IELTS skills in particular, to international students online and at a wide range of reputable institutions. I also have an excellent track record.
