About me

I'm a CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) trained English teacher and have been teaching General and Business English for quite some time now. Like most of us, I have had some great teachers. What made them different and stand out was a set of qualities which, I think, make good teachers great. For starters, they were passionate about their job. It may sound cliché, but there really wouldn’t be a dull moment in their company. They’d listen, interact, provide real answers or creative solutions and not be afraid to be questioned. When I became a teacher, I tried to imbibe and emulate these qualities.

I'd be more than happy to share my knowledge and be the English teacher you've been looking for! Hope to hear form you soon!

Teaching Approach

In my years of teaching English, I’ve had to come up with creative activities, movie and theatre sessions and even singing classes to keep my students engaged and interested in learning English. I’ve learnt to be patient, to be imaginative and at times a real friend.

Technically speaking, I use the tried and tested "guided discovery" approach in which students are encouraged to learn the rules and practice of a language analytically. Here the students have more inductive capacity and learning becomes lot more fun.
