I am a qualitifed TEFL teacher. I am passionate about the English language. I have degrees in English Language and Communication. I have experience in teaching English to high school students and adults. I worked and lived in Thailand to teach students at a high school. I have also taught online to adult students from all over the world. I enjoy teaching as I get to help people achieve their language goals. I am a profressional non-fiction writer. I love reading books and watching films because I am a creative and curious person. Adventure and travel are so important to me because I love meeting new people and learning about different countries and cultures.
Me as a Teacher
I am friendly, organised and patient. I try to guide my students and support their unique language needs. I am open to interesting conversations and practising speaking skills as well as grammar and language. I am focused and try to give all my attention and energy to my students during lessons. I enjoy learning new things and I try to encourage my students to do the same, with a postive attitude towards their language journey.
My lessons & teaching style
My teaching style is student-centered. My goal in all my lessons is to serve the student and help them achieve their language goals, no matter how big or small these goals are. I am patient with my students and adjust my lessons around them to help them gain confidence in their language and speaking skills. I want my students to be the best English speakers they can be by owning the language and believing in their abilities. I am always keen to support my students in the certain speaking, reading and language areas they would like to improve.I will provide additional techniques and language resources for my students to practice in their everyday life.
