Detailed Profile in English

About me

I am a British EFL teacher from London, England. My background is as an environmental science writer, so I offer students free support to improve their writing skills. I have been teaching since 2006.

I support students to improve their confidence with the speaking and pronunciation by talking about diverse and fun topics, reading and writing. I enjoy making creative and interesting lessons to engage students as much as possible and more importantly see them inspired to learn more while having fun doing it. I provide all students with relevant workbooks and teaching material, all included for free! I speak English and Spanish.

Teaching Approach

I can help students who to quickly build their confidence and fluency when talking in English. We discuss various topics relating to a range of environments from professional business to social events, presentations and special conferences, an interview or a Cambridge English oral speaking exam. Students will build their level of confidence with the language, expand their vocabulary and perfect their pronunciation.

The courses I teach are listed below-

1. The Art of Conversation-

This is a new course, upon request by many students. This is an enjoyable way to improve your English speaking and pronunciation skills. Learn the art of fluent conversation whilst you expand your vocabulary. My lessons offer a broad and challenging variety of interesting topics from discussing current news media, talks and videos to abstract concepts. These lessons stimulate students to become articulate in conversation. This is an opportunity to practice speaking where it can be challenging in using English to express complex opinions on controversial issues.

Environmental Sciences, Ecology, Biology, Medicine, Law, Business, Journalism, Media, Engineering, Hospitality, Sales.
