About me

Hi, there! Let's learn English! I'm an experienced teacher. I have several years of one-to-one teaching, and I tailor my lessons to my students' needs and interests. My online lessons are visually attractive and I make use of all the resources Internet offers: videos, interactive games, audios and more.

I've been teaching for the past twelve years since getting my Teaching English to Young Learners Certificate, and I've had students of all ages and levels. Regarding my English Language level I hold the Cambridge English: Proficiency (CPE).

For three years I taught English online to large groups of primary school students. My speciality areas are Grammar and Vocabulary, Writing, Conversational English, Job Interview Preparation, and Cultural Awareness.

Hope to hear from you!

Teaching Approach

All lessons are planned to cater for the students' needs and interests, in order to engage and motivate them. While I put more emphasis on speaking skills (conversation skills, interactions, functions, pronunciation), this stems into working on all the macro abilities (Speaking, Listening, Reading, Writing) as well as working on Vocabulary, Language and Grammar. I also make use of the resources Internet has to offer: videos, interactive resources, audio, etc.
