I am a native speaker of English who has lived overseas. I study Arabic, so I understand the challenges that face language learners. I wish to help others improve their English through topic based conversation, with a focus on building vocabulary.

About sjefferson

I am an undergraduate student, studying International Relations, majoring in Arabic Language and Middle Eastern Studies. I have lived internationally, including Singapore and briefly in Oman.

At the moment, I am only offering informal tutoring. I can assist with formal writing, conversation and reading.

I will endeavour to structure sessions around my method of learning vocabulary, which involves discussion about a particular topic, so as to build the relationship between words and their context. This might be a topic that the student finds interesting, or it may be a topic in which the student feels that they lack vocabulary. I believe this helps to build confidence and a usable vocabulary.

However, this is up to the student, as ultimately they know what works well for them.
