I believe that the most important thing in my profession is to think outside the box as every private student comes with a different set of needs. I motivate my students to push themselves beyond their usual boundaries to get them further quickly. And I believe in the potential of every single one of my students.

I would teach over Skype. Please email me for further details.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
Everyone has a different learning style and it is important that you and your teacher are aware of this. Once tested, you will find it much easier to get a grasp of the language. Don't be demotivated if you have forgotten the meaning of a word again, usually you need to meet the word seven times in different contexts for you to actively use it.
Personalize the word and put it in context for you, or ask your teacher to help.

After having gained a teaching qualification, I have been teaching English on a one to one basis. I have a lot of experiences teaching different age groups and levels.

CRB from 2010.

- Tell me about some of your current students.
Sharon, 38 years old, started with me two months ago. He was refered to me through a friend who went to school with him. This friend prepared me that Sharon has concentration difficulties and his English is beginners level. Sharon's problem isn't that he is a slow learner, but never before had someone managed to engage him and kept him interested. My tasks for him need to be varied and quick,and once his concentration goes, I react with a change in topic and pace. And indeed, I now consider him one of my fast learning students. He keeps every vocabulary I taught him in mind, without much revision.
Another student, Zuzanna, a lawyer from the Czech Republic, has started with me as an intermediate student and asked for conversation lessons. We gradually worked towards an advanced level and she just took her CAE Exam. She has now left London to go back home to embark on a career. In our last lesson, she told me that she would have never believed that she could improve so quickly. I wish her best of luck on her career path.
