About me - English

I have been teaching English for twenty years, in several different countries including Italy, Brazil and Hungary. I was also a teacher for 12 years at one of London's most respected language schools. So I have a lot of experience. I speak several languages, which helps me to communicate and relate to the issues of language learners.

Students enjoy my fun and lively approach.

I have a Celta Certificate from International House.

Teaching Approach

My approach is fun and personal. I like students to talk about their lives and interests as this helps them to really express themselves in the language.

I have a good understanding of grammar and a lot of experience teaching it in a communicative way. I am also interested in pronunciation, and enjoy helping students with any problems they have.
