Teaching Approach

My teaching approach is conversational, unless otherwise requested by learners. We can choose a topic you like and a level you are comfortable with. If there is something specific you want to practise, let me know in advance and I can prepare a lesson for this.

Topics we can choose can be, for example:

Everyday conversations and scenarios you will have in the workplace or school (role-play),

Favorite holiday destinations and things you like to do in your holidays,

Aspirations and goals,

Local news,

Cultural customs and traditions,

Anything you like to talk about with your friends and colleagues,

OR you can even read me your diary about what you did at the weekend and we can discuss that!

Corrections and phrases to practise can be sent to you at the end of our session.

I can teach all levels - even if you are just starting out and learning vocabulary and basic sentences.
