I am TESOL qualified (Trinity College, London) and I have taught English at all levels in Indonesia, Italy, Spain, the US and the UK over the past eight years. On top of this, I have taught English online to students across the globe for almost three years.
I have helped countless numbers of English learners, Business people and professionals to improve their confidence and language skills in a range of different business and social situations. Tailoring courses to individual students needs has proved to be a very effective way of developing student skills quickly as well as effectively. I enjoy making the English language come alive for my students! I enjoy bringing humour and imagination to my classes, and I really like to motivate my students so they are constantly challenged and stimulated in my classes.
Often students are too focused on grammar and nervous about speaking, so I create a relaxed atmosphere where mistakes are positive and used to learn from. Laughter is also very important. It breaks down barriers to help my students speak freely in English.
Are you worried about being understood when speaking English? I have devised a “SPECIAL ACCENT REDUCTION COURSE” which focuses on all aspects of pronunciation including the different vowel sounds, intonation and stress patterns.
Do you need improve your business skills? My “COMPLETE BUSINESS ENGLISH COURSE” can help you improve your interviewing, telephoning, negotiation and presentation skills.
Do you need to improve your IELTS score? Take my “IELTS ACADEMIC AND GENERAL COURSE” which has been developed to explain clearly exam techniques to enhance your score. All students provided with a copy of all material for own reference.
I am from Manchester, UK. I graduated from the University of Leeds with a BA Honours in Business Studies. After graduating I operated in a number of different business positions which included the start up of my own business in the natural products industry. I find great pleasure in applying knowledge and experience I have developed in the field to my classes.
I have a genuine interest in people and I enjoy travelling, learning languages and exploring different cultures. All this makes teaching English the perfect job for me!
