Reading-based English teacher - Jobbing journalist, native British English. Grammar, elocution, pronunciation, colloquial English specialisms. Adults or children, for native of foreign speakers

Methodology

I employ a modern, fun, energetic teaching style, adaptable to both young people and adults. I use:
- Imaginative games for learning
- Physically active games for learning
- Encouraging and nurturing critical and creative individual thinking
- Cross media / cross platform learning, using arts and visual aids

Experience

I am an English whizz with a degree and job in journalism and a lifetime's experience in creative and academic writing. I have a year's experience teaching in Vietnam, teaching children from ages 4-12. I have also privately tutored adults, both native speakers and foreign language speakers. I am used to designing my own lessons and making my own lesson materials.

I specialise in:
- Explaining grammar, with fun, memorable examples
- Pronunciation help for those that need it. I have a Received Pronunciation British English accent.
- Expressive reading - how to intone and project
- Colloquialisms - how and when to use them appropriately (and when not to use them)
