Hello! I am English and I live in the South-west of England with my four cats! I have been teaching English on Skype for five years.

Being the daughter of a journalist and author, language has always been my passion and apart from teaching English, I am also a part-time author and translator.

English teaching to foreign students covering all aspects of the English language. Specialising in Business English as well as exam preparation for English proficiency exams such as IELTS/TOEFL and the Cambridge Examinations.

Teaching Approach

I use various methods and adapt easily to my students’ needs; encouraging self-confidence which enables them to engage in communication. I always try to find solutions if there is a problem by giving clear and specific examples and explanations of certain situations. I believe that learning a language should be a fun and enjoyable adventure and an opportunity to share with each other our culture, customs and traditions.

I specialise in business English having run my own manufacturing company for twenty years before qualifying as a teacher of English as a foreign language. In my spare time I enjoy studying French; a language I have been learning for more than seventeen years. I like reading, theatre and current affairs.

Thank you for reading this brief introduction and I look forward to helping you master the English language
