Each of my lessons is professionally crafted, adapted and suited to your individual requirements, needs and aims. Each lesson is fun and engaging, with activities, exercises and conversational skills to meet your goals. I strongly believe in my role as facilitator, helping you gain vital communication skills and confidence and fostering a true love of the English language!
I have two degrees, from the University of Cambridge and the Royal College of Music, London: both in the Top 10 Universities of their kind in the world. This education has equipped me with the many experiences and skills I need to tailor our student-centred lessons to your specific needs and goals!
I have a TEFL Certification from the International TEFL Academy (Grade A: 98.83%) and have developed my teaching style and experiences to help you succeed, improve your confidence in your abilities and achieve your best. I have tutored students since 2014 and helped them succeed in all areas, from exams to everyday situations.
My passions are learning, teaching and singing - I am also a professional opera singer with experience touring the globe and learning Italian, French and German, so I know exactly what challenges any language learner can face!
I have a thirst for knowledge and discovery - be it in new languages or subjects - and I hope to inspire the same in you!
