About me

Hi all, welcome and thank you for viewing my profile!

I'm a native English speaker from UK, and have been teaching English for the past three years, both in London and in Mexico, where I've been living for the past 2 years. Living in a foreign country, I understand the challenge of learning another language and I love accompanying students on this challenging but exciting journey.

I love literature, travelling and long conversations, and my favourite part of teaching is definitely getting to know other people and experiences from all over the world.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Teaching Approach

I believe the key to learning a new language is creating a supportive, dynamic atmosphere where students feel comfortable to make mistakes, ask questions and have fun! For this reason, I like to use lots of authentic materials, interesting discussion topics and work from real-life situations. I always integrate the four core skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) as part of my lesson plans, unless my students request to work exclusively on a particular language area (e.g. conversation).

I will tailor the lesson to your needs! So whether you're preparing for an interview, an exam, a presentation, want to expand your vocabulary, fine tune your grammar or simply improve your conversational skills, we can work together to achieve your language learning goals.

Me and Zoe had a very good conversation: she is patient and precise. I feel that she is really interested in helping me. And the most important thing: she is a smiling and kind person.
