About Tamsin Hickson

I lived in South Africa where I was born until I graduated from the University of Cape Town with a degree in Architectural Studies. I then moved to the United Kingdom where I lived for twenty years. There I started my own business as a jewellery designer, as well as hosting students of English in our family home. When I moved to Italy nine years ago I began to teach English in the local community. In the last eight years I have taught the Italian Military at their academy, I have given lessons to people in factories, designers, and local people wanting to learn conversational English. I have also considerable experience of running building sites in Italy, translating between Italian builders and English clients.
I offer students a comprehensive lesson plan, working on their weak points, and developing above all their ability to converse with ease. Pronunciation and the ability to listen are two key factors in helping people to communicate well in English.
