I am a native speaker from the UK and after a long professional life I found my passion for teaching English online 3 years ago, because I like meeting and getting to know new people.
As a person that always wants to give its best I obtained a TEFL certificate in order to improve and develop my teaching.
I am a very patient and thorough person, so you should easily feel at ease and not have any fear to talk - which is the most important if you learn a language. And during my lessons you´ll see that I love my job.
My accent is very clear and easy to understand.
I can provide you with help in general English, Business English – also for different professions (like banking, law, commerce, technology, tourism..), or special training for meetings, telephoning, negotiation) and exam preparation for all major exams (FCE, CAE, IELTS a.o.), conversational lessons, accent reduction or we can concentrate on your written English.
My interests are: travelling, health and diet, pets, football

I started tutoring English in 2016 mostly one-to-one online to students from all over Europe.
As I am a language learner myself (German, Greek) during the last months, I know how it feels to be a student again - but with fun and the right spirit everything is possible even at my age.
During our free trial lesson I´m able to see what kind of support you need and we can discuss your goals. After that I will send you some tutorial learning material.
I offer general English and exam preparation with serious lesson plans.
With conversation lessons and communication while you are doing most of the speaking and carefully guided by me I can help you to become more fluent in speaking. Supported by texts and articles from newspapers, books or some videos you can extend your vocabulary skills and I can correct your grammar. The grammar can be explained by me and when you want to do more exercises and improve your grammar skills I can provide you with some PDF for self study.
For students with higher levels we can focus on phrasal verbs and idioms. We can work on your listening skills or your pronunciation also with exercises for accent reduction.
If you have enough time and want to do some homework (writing tasks i.e.) we´ll discuss them in the following lesson.
I´m learner-centred, communicative and caring. I can promise you a positive learning experience and guidance for your language approach. I always make my lessons enjoyable and fun, but also challenging for my students. And because of my long professional life I have a wide range of knowledge to share with you.
