Detailed Profile in English

About me

I am a mother tongue English teacher that enjoys all the wonderful in life. I love to read, write, ski, swim, run and enjoy good cuisine. I am well- travelled and have lived in 4 different countries. I am originally from the UK but have also spent time in Australia and the USA so I familiar with and able to teach different dialects.

I speak fluent Italian and am practising French so I fully understand the difficulties pupils have when studying a new language. I am a conversationalist so I can adapt to a range of topics and am always interested to hear stories about other cultures.

Qualifications & Experience

I have 5 years experience teaching children & adults in groups, one-to-one and via Skype. I have taught to every level and to around 20 different nationalities

I am TEFL qualified, and have had extensive specialised training with independent schools (e.g Helen Doron Early Learning). I have attended workshops focused on Business English and have prepared students for exams (KET, PET, FCE, CAMBRIDGE, TRINITY).

Teaching Approach

All of my lessons are designed to suit the students needs. I am able to easily adapt to the requirements of the pupil and most importantly I want my students to feel comfortable and enjoy the experience. I have a lot of patience and understand when it is difficult to produce, pronounce of express something without having the right vocabulary. Through experience I am empathetic and able to realise struggles and coach the student into having the confidence to speak and understand at a high level.
