Qualified English teacher with 14 years experience gives conversation classes in Edinburgh and online.

Methodology

I love to help build people's confidence through informal conversation classes. Encouragement is my main tool, helping to develop a can-do attitude and fostering a supportive environment where it's OK to make mistakes. Offering lessons to all ages, I am adaptable and flexible to the needs of the individual.

Whether you would like a few one-off lessons to help you prepare for a presentation, job interview or a holiday, or whether you are looking for more regular speaking and listening sessions, I would be happy to help.

Background

Qualifying as a secondary school teacher of English in 2002, as well as having a CELTA qualification, I have taught hundreds of students, of all ages, both in the UK and overseas. My emphasis on high standards, whilst fostering an encouraging, relaxed and fun learning environment, ensures students make significant progress and are well-prepared for examinations. Each lesson is tailor-made to the student's interests ensuring quick progress is made.

My main teaching days are Wednesday and Friday, 9am-6pm UK time. The first lesson is free to allow us to get to know each other and to work out your personal learning goals.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Emanuela

Excellent! Elizabeth is a nice easy-going person and an excellent teacher that I met on this site. In a short time she passed on her positivity to me. The lessons were needed to a preparation for an job interview.

Elizabeth è una persona simpatica e alla mano e un'eccellente prof che ho incontrato su questo sito. In poco tempo mi ha trasmesso la sua positività. Le lezioni sono state utili per la preparazione di un colloquio di lavoro.

Matthieu

Elizabeth is a very personable and competent English Teacher. She enjoys seeing people thrive and has a warm, friendly personality. Her interest and participation in Community Development, both Internationally and locally, mean Elizabeth also has a wide-ranging experience of working with diverse groups of people, with adaptability being a strength. Elizabeth's Christian Faith underpins her hard-working, honest and reliable character. I would highly recommend her to you.
