About the lesson
I am a friendly, patient and passionate tutor. My lessons are tailored to the individual goals, levels and preferred learning style of my students.
For English learners, as I am TEFL (Teach English as a Foreign Language) trained, I like to apply many of the methodology to my teaching, predominantly PPL (Presentation, Practice and Production). Let’s describe this like learning to swim; a swimming instructor would first demonstrate a stroke outside the pool to beginners, then offer encouragement and support if required as their students rehearse the stroke in the pool, and finally have them begin their first few strokes by themselves.
My aim is to help students of all levels to feel confident and comfortable using their chosen foreign language, and I like to challenge them in many ways and using different materials to help them move forward. For those perhaps more advanced in oral communication, I like to encourage mature conversations in the target language, having discussions and even debates on relevant subjects such as global issues or current news and homework will be oriented around research for these activities. I do like a good debate!

Are you interested in learning or improving your French, Italian or English? Maybe you're preparing for the IELTS test?
Currently studying Mandarin Chinese and having completed GCSE, A Level, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in French and Italian, I have lived and worked as an English teacher for 7 months in France and 10 months in China, and am personally truly passionate about languages and cultures. I have prepared Chinese university students for their IELTS exams, helping them get the score they need in order to work or study in an English speaking country - many have been successful in passing and will move abroad this year.
I understand the difficulties learning a new language or living in a foreign country can bring, and am able to help those wishing to begin a new language or improve their existing knowledge.
