- Do you have a personal message for students?
I'm a friendly, professional and patient teacher with lots of teaching experience. Before the course starts, I'll conduct a needs analysis to gauge exactly what you are looking for and give you an indication of how I'll deliver. For EFL courses, I like to use a course book but may provide supplementary material or use online resources (videos, listening comprehensions etc). For GCSE and A level studies, I generally use past papers, specifications and marking schemes, course textbooks, the best pass notes, online sources and creative exercises to draw out character or literary characteristics (in English). I also review the material that the student's teacher has provided as this can be comprehensive and simply requires a little applied study. I'll happily help you on the road to reaching your potential.
Foreign languages spoken (to facilitate communication): Fluent Italian & French.
- What kind of experience do you have?
Extensive field experience in London and Italy. Currently teaching English and Academic Writing at a City of London school. I also tutor IELTS, Cambridge Advanced, GCSE and A Level privately and teach business English on a private and agency basis. All my exam candidates achieved well last year and have progressed to the sixth forms and universities of their choice. This year my IELTS candidate scored 7.0 and my summer exam timetable includes OET, IELTS and Cambridge Advanced. My adult students describe me as a 'great teacher' whilst my younger students appreciate my insight and understanding.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I trained as a teacher with SKOLA Teacher Training, Star Street, London and with The Callan School, Oxford Street, London. I attained my BA (Hons) at King's College London and my MA (Professional Writing) at Falmouth University, the UK's Number 1 Arts University.
- Do you belong to any professional organisations?
