Detailed Profile in English

About me

I’m a professional English 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.

Teaching Approach

I believe your English lessons should be centred around your needs and created to match your goal and learning style, for this reason, you’ll have:

01. Prepared lessons with authentic, customised material with your goal in mind,

02. Hints and tips on how to study and prepare for international exams like the IELTS,

03. Lessons to improve the skills you want to develop, but also improve your overall understanding and use of English,

04. English language and culture, and tips on how to become an independent learner.

05. An opportunity to communicate in English with a qualified native teacher who will work to help you to express yourself clearly and correctly.

After we've established your level of English, we will discuss your needs and expectations. I’ll show you how my teaching expertise can help you become the best English speaker you can be. I will coach and support you every step of the way to become fully competent and confident to communicate in English.

Book a lesson NOW, so we can discuss your needs and start the lessons that will make a real difference in your life and career.

*** CANCELLATION POLICY ***

If you cancel your lesson with less than 24 hours notice, the lesson must be paid in full. Please try to communicate with the teacher as early as possible about any changes.
