I am a qualified TEFL teacher from the UK currently living in Turkey. I have previously been an accountant and a flight instructor. I grew up in East Africa and speak passable Swahili and now I am learning Turkish. I love travelling and learning about different cultures.
Me as a Teacher
I am very patient and happy to go over everything as often as necessary. I am aware that learning something new can be stressful. Learning should always be fun!
My lessons & teaching style
My lessons are tailored for all ages and understanding levels.
I use lots of visual aids and "realia" to keep learning interesting and fun while keeping students' attention. i vary between "patient and kind" and "fun and playful" and a little more serious, depending on the age and needs of the students
