I started teaching English casually, to friends and acquaintances, about five years ago. While helping them out, I discovered I loved teaching. I decided to make it my full-time job about a year ago, after gaining my TEFL certificate, and I teach one-to-one both on and offline.
I understand the challenges my students face because I have recently started learning French myself after several years without studying it!
My interests outside of teaching include animals, making jewellery, politics and current affairs.
As well as my TEFL certificate, my other certificates include a Cambridge English Teachers Grammar Course, Teaching Young Learners and Teaching with Limited Resources. I am also studying towards a degree in English Language and Literature.
I have taught learners of all levels, including children, in a variety of different environments. I have been teaching for around 5 years in total, and online for two years.
My lessons make use of lots of different materials, such as videos, audio recordings, songs, articles and textbooks, so we can build all your skills. I have experience helping students prepare for the IELTS exam as well as others, and I also offer an essay correction service if writing is your main focus.
I offer a series of classes called 'English with British Culture', which are brilliant for students who have an interest in the UK, or who are planning to come here for work and study. Through a series of mostly video-based lessons, you'll be introduced to British idioms, attitudes and celebrated people.
