I am a fully qualified English teacher with over 15 years of teaching experience. I graduated from the University of Birmingham with a Masters of Art in Teaching English as a Foreign Language, and have been teaching and training other English teachers in Costa Rica for the past 8 years. I have taught over 500 students both home and abroad and my teaching methodology is based on the communicative approach to language learning. I quickly get to know my students, find out what they want and need, identify areas for improvement and then together we make a plan and practice. I can teach all levels; beginners through to advanced, small groups and one to one, college students and university graduates and also business executives. I have extensive experience in many areas including helping students practise for presentations and interviews, guiding students in the completion of applications, general day to day conversations, and helping students prepare for the IELTS exams. My lessons will help you with your vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar and fluency. I strive to make them fun and engaging as well as interactive and interesting. Feedback from former students has always been very positive, with many of them getting into their chosen English speaking university, others improving their academic performance or increasing their job prospects and some just using their English language skills to travel the world.
I have been teaching for over 15 years and have given lessons to a variety of students in a variety of locations. I have taught private and group community classes, on beaches in the sun, in cafes and libraries and in regular classrooms. I have a flexible approach to learning and focus on what students need the language for and what they want to be able to do with it. I am consistent in my planning and patient in my approach. I have been a tutor both face to face and online and have had the pleasure of teaching students from all over the world. It is something that I enjoy and want to carry on for many more years.
