About me - English

This is Your Chance to Become Fluent in English and Take Your Communications Skills to the Next Level. Personalised Lessons Created with Your Goal in Mind.

I’m a professional English Language Teacher from the UK. I have been a teacher most of my life and I really enjoy seeing my students succeed. Teaching English online has allowed me to learn about other cultures and work from anywhere. I believe in self-improvement and I’m always studying to improve my teaching skills to become the best teacher I can be. I can help you to prepare for the IELTS exam with speaking training, improve your English oral communication with lessons that focus on speaking and pronunciation, and even help you to become more confident in your job interview in English. But if you only want to improve your English in general, I offer customised lessons from A2 to C2 level. I believe in the student-centred approach when teaching and in creating relevant lessons for your needs.

In my free time, I like travelling, reading and learning new things. I love learning about different countries and cultures and I have a dream to travel around the world. I enjoy reading anything, especially fiction. I also like watching movies and series, so if you would like to discuss your favourite work of fiction we can do just that.

If you would like to know more about me and my teaching style, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.

*** PLEASE NOTE: before booking a lesson, contact me for an updated schedule.
