I base my classes on what you require, each class is built on the one previous. Classes include elements of vocabulary, reading, grammar, pronunciation, spelling, writing, free flowing and structured communication. Basic to advanced levels, there will be homework!
My working life has included many titles, professional performer, teacher, cook, gardener, hostess to name a few. I have 5 years of University, a dance diploma, and TOFEL certification. I am respectful, courteous, reliable, believe in working hard to achieve goals whilst maintaining a dignified sense of humour.
24 hours notice is required from both student or teacher for cancellation of a lesson.
