I've been teaching English for over 3 years and during this time I have gained experience with young learners, adults and business clients all of learning levels. I have lived abroad for many years and enjoy travelling. I hope that my worldly knowledge can help me develop fun and interesting lessons tailored to your needs. I really enjoy learning about new cultures and hope that you can tell me a little about your culture.
I am CELTA qualified which I achieved a grade B in. I am currently studying a PGCE in the UK to broaden my knowledge.

I have experience teaching exam preparation classes (FCE, CAE and all levels of Trinity), business English, English conversation and English for employment.
I have a very student centred approach where I assess your needs, goals and abilities and help you achieve the very best you can be. Whatever your goals are, I am adaptable and will take your learning needs into consideration as well as delivering personalised and dynamic lessons.

I will be honest and give you constructive feedback to ensure that after each lesson you will always have to opportunity to improve.
