I've always loved languages and travelling. I have studied at university in UK, Germany & Italy, travelled extensively in France, Spain and South America and qualified as a teacher in 1998.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I offer lessons via SKYPE or FaceTime, focussing mainly on speaking, listening and pronunciation skills.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
Every student and language training course is unique so I ensure lessons are created to suit individual goals and interests.
You can study at your own pace, gaining confidence as you progress and you'll be speaking in your chosen language from lesson 1. Focus is on communicating & responding confidently, developing good pronunciation skills and building a solid foundation of grammar and vocabulary.

Becoming a teacher 17 years ago was a natural step. I have since gained considerable experience teaching languages in primary & secondary schools in the UK & overseas preparing students for GCSE, A-level and International Baccalaureate. I have also taught EFL at language schools in Finland and Germany.
I teach adults for holiday, travel and relocation purposes. I also teach a number of corporate clients requiring business language skills such as email and phone communication, presentations, meetings and trade fairs.
