Detailed Profile in English

About me

I’m English and live in a small seaside town on the eastern coast of England. My interests include fashion designing, making jewellery, DIY, and travel. Of course, I also enjoy learning and teaching languages and I speak good Spanish and a little French.

As well as teaching, I have also spent 18 years working in public relations for a marketing agency.

Qualifications & Experience

BA Honours Degree in Communication Studies – University of Central England – 1990

CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Adults) – Clarendon College, Nottingham – 1994

I started teaching English in 1994. I teach British English and have taught overseas as well as here in the UK. My students have ranged from 6-60 years old, from absolute beginner to advanced levels, and I have also taught Business English. I have taught one-to-one and group lessons and have worked in both classroom and online environments. I use dedicated online teaching software, which enables me to incorporate multimedia activities such as videos, listening exercises and interactive games, as well as Skype.

I have been teaching online English lessons since January 2012.

Teaching Approach

Primarily, learning a language must be fun and relevant. My lessons are adapted to the individual needs, interests and learning style, of each individual student so that you are learning what YOU need to learn and you can apply what you have learnt in real life situations.

My aim is always to provide interesting lessons in a relaxed environment, to encourage you to use your language skills confidently and helping you develop your vocabulary, and pronunciation as well as to improve grammar where necessary. I use a variety of methods to help you build on the four areas of language – listening, speaking, reading and writing – depending on your needs. If you would like to focus on your conversation skills, we can do that. If you would like to improve your grammar, or pronunciation, we can do that, too.

It is my job to help you to achieve your language goals, but YOU are in charge.

She is a very good teacher who is friendly and patient. She is also punctual. During the lessons, I never felt bored and lost attention since the topics are always interesting. What I like most is that she never ignored my mistakes and corrected them

I like her style, she is better than a teacher, you feel with her not teacher like a friend. And she has rich arguments
