Bio:

I specialise in teaching ages 18+ with levels B1-C1. I enjoy helping students improve their written and spoken English, helping them achieve their goals (such as preparing for interviews or exams), and working to discover new idioms, phrasal verbs and vocabulary.

My teaching methodology:
Come and learn real, everyday English with me! I like to use authentic materials such as TED talks, newspaper and magazine articles, books and podcasts. I prefer my lessons to be fun and relaxed, but I am determined to help my students reach their goals. I set homework and offer progress tests if the students wish, and am happy to customise lessons depending on what the students need. Some students only want to focus on being confident speakers and others want to work on everything. Whatever you need, let’s discuss and see how I can help you. Due to prices rising in the UK, I have had to increase my lessons by £2 - apologies for this and thanks for your understanding.
My teaching background:

I have been teaching since 2017 and enjoy both General English and Cambridge exams classes. I have specialised in helping students prepare for the Cambridge Advanced (C1) exam, so if you’re looking to take this in the future - let’s connect! Most of my students are from Spain, Italy and Germany and have a B2 / C1 level of English. However, I have experience teaching students from 3 to 65 at levels A0 to C1. I have been lucky with my jobs and have taught in Taiwan, Poland and England.

My background outside of teaching:

Before I became a teacher I was a content writer. I wrote for newspapers, magazines and also wrote for online purposes such as blogs, social media adverts and captions. I still write during my free time and also love reading.
