italki teacher since Dec 24, 2021
I am very patient and empathetic and gain such fulfilment helping my students develop their language skills. I graduated from the University of Southampton with a first class honours degree in Politics and German. I found learning all the German tenses difficult so can't imagine how difficult it must be to master all 16 in English! For five years, I worked as a professional actress, appearing in musicals such as the Phantom of the Opera. I am now a qualified TEFL teacher and am helping students all over the world challenge themselves and gain more confidence. I am from London and love talking about all things London! My other interests are theatre, food, music, reading, film and politics.
Me as a Teacher
My most fundamental quality as a teacher is patience and care. No one can learn a new language if they feel nervous, stressed or scared. I will make you feel like making mistakes is a great thing.... the more you make, the more you learn and get better!
I have a good knowledge of English grammar and help some students drill into complex structures and master tricky grammar points. Alternatively, I help other students simply improve their conversation skills by making sure we have a steady stream of interesting topics to talk about.
My current students would say I'm highly personable, focused on their goals and needs and always dependable.
My lessons & teaching style
My teaching style is one of patience, friendliness and warmth. I want you to enjoy our sessions and will work hard to ensure this. My lessons can be full of fun and interesting materials such as video sources, games, word jumbles and topics to get you talking. If you are really keen to put in extra work, I will set homework and give you feedback and corrections.
Some of my students have intense exams to prepare for or may be running up to an interview or presentation in English. If this is the case, we can make the sessions highly specialised and I will ensure we do role plays and test questions with plenty of feedback and correction.
