Experienced and mature tutor excited to see you master the English language.

Methodology

My methodology is mixed depending on the level of understanding and comprehension of a student. Generally, I will use the presentation, practice and production methodology. I will first present the material and explain it, give a practice and homework exercises.

Background

I recently graduated from Oxford Seminars with a certificate in teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, Teaching English as a Second Language, and Teaching English as a Foreign Language. However, I also have a doctoral degree Politics and International Relations.
