I am a qualified TEFL and TESOL English Teacher, with experience teaching English on Skype.
I enjoy teaching English in particular to complete beginners who have never spoken English before, also adults who would like to improve their conversation and written skills. I am happy to talk about anything and can help you in business and your social life. I am well traveled and can also teach you about the culture of England.
For students who are brand new to the language the objective is to cover the basic vocabulary and grammar with much repetition. The curriculum moves the student through different topics such as daily and leisure activities, describing people and places, shopping, restaurant and health. As students progress they engage in more advanced types of dialogues using increasingly complex grammar. The most advanced students greatly benefit from one on one dialogues and timely corrections on pronunciation and grammar. Lessons are tailored to their interests.
Students benefit the most when they practice the four skills of listening, reading, writing and speaking activities both in class and outside of class.
I have many personal interests including the environment, animal welfare, health and wellness, as well as current affairs and science. I practice Yoga daily and have traveled to many countries including, India, Australia and New Zealand.

My approach to teaching is through active learning. I like to encourage students to engage with a topic and really work it through so they have a thorough understanding.
I use current material including news, science and social media and follow a curriculum which will have you speaking in English from the first lesson. I am student focused and will ensure that teach you according to your learning style and working towards your individual goal.
