About Naga

I have a Master's degree, a UK adult teaching qualification (PGCE), and a postgraduate qualification in literacy difficulties. I have 11 years of experience teaching in British universities have taught English in a variety of settings both formally and informally, face-to-face and online.

I have also worked with students who have literacy difficulties, including supporting students to develop their English for Academic Purposes (EAP). With my help, you will develop excellent British English. That's a promise!

At present, I work professionally in distance/online education with the Open University, through Italki, and through my own business 'Huella Viva'. I teach in a flexible way that begins with evaluating your level of English through conversation and a sample piece of writing. From there, I will identify key areas for development and help you to address these in the context of interesting learning activities, such as learning about different aspects of British culture. I emphasise day-to-day fluency and accurate pronunciation. If you are studying for a particular test, such as IELTS, I can support you in succeeding in your goals.
