Hi, my name's Elinor. Are you looking for one-to-one lessons to meet your English language learning needs? I'm here to help!
I'm from the UK but I'm now living in Singapore, a small island country in south-east Asia. I have over 10 years' experience teaching English to speakers of other languages. My experience is in helping people improve their English language skills for life, university, business and ESL exams e.g. IELTS. I have also taught ESL skills to all school-age levels: pre-school, primary and secondary.
When I'm not teaching (I also teach face-to-face in an ESL school here in Singapore) I'm out and about in our local parks and nature reserves - yes there's more to Singapore than just shopping centres! I'm married to a Brazilian, that's why I speak Portuguese. I also speak French as I studied it at university and my other language is Dutch as my mother is from the Netherlands. So, what does this mean....? I know what it feels like trying to make yourself understood in another language. It's a great feeling when you can make other people understand what you want to say.
10+ years teaching adults and young learners in the UK and Asia and more recently in-service and pre-service teacher training.

What is the teaching style?
In my lessons I follow the communicative approach. This means that our classes will always be interactive and you will be using English from the very first lesson! In a one-to-one class we can quickly and easily improve your confidence using English.
What to expect in your lessons?
I know exactly what it feels like to study another language. I've studied French, Russian, Indonesian and I'm studying Arabic at the moment! A successful lesson for the student (and teacher) is a well-planned one. Before we start the trial lesson we will talk about what you want from your lessons. Each lesson will have a specific objective so that at the end you will know you have improved your English language skills.
I look forward to meeting you!
