First I have a general conversation about their goals and what they perceive as their specific needs and interests. This helps me ascertain their spoken proficiency. I also try at this time to discover how they like to be taught. I have also studied psychology, and I know that people have different learning preferences. Some might like more written work; others might prefer more oral. Some do well knowing syntax and parts of speech well and understanding why, for example, it is grammatically correct to say "between you and me" instead of "between you and I". I like to customise my teaching to fit the individual. Most of all, I believe that learning should be fun. This makes retention much more likely.

I studied design and creative writing at university in the United States and moved to the UK in the 1970s. My husband was the author of 24 books, and he was famous in his niche field. I helped him research and edit 12 of his books. I have given poetry-writing lessons and novel-writing lessons as well as general English vocabulary and grammar lessons stretching over a period of more than 20 years. This was not done on a continuous basis, however. I have tutored over 75 students and all have given me positive feedback. They have gone on to write and publish poetry, completed novels, increased their vocabularies, understood grammar for the first time, and become proficient at writing business letters and e-mails. Since my husband's death, I have completed a mystery novel based in the art world and has been accepted by a literary agent.
Cancellation policy: Half the price of the lesson will be charged unless notification of at least twenty-four hours is given.
