Native Finnish speaker with 20 years of international experience
italki teacher since Aug 13, 2022
Hei! My name is Heidi and I am a 40 year old native Finnish speaker living in London. I have lived and worked (finance and consultancy) in the UK for the past 20 years and my English is at a C2 level.
I am passionate about learning and teaching languages (we speak Finnish, English and French at home), baking and travelling.
Me as a Teacher
I am a very approachable, patient and reliable teacher. I have been teaching Finnish in an informal setting for the last 5 years. I enjoy teaching Finnish and I think part of the pleasure is to see the process through and witness how someone can go from knowing a few words to confidently communicating their needs and desires in fluent Finnish!
My lessons & teaching style
I offer tailor made classes based on the your needs and goals. I think we all learn differently and some will like a more grammar based lesson structure other will want to learn more vocabulary and how to communicate in real life situations. My classes are suitable for all ages and levels, from new beginners to more advanced learners. I use Suomen Mestari books in my teaching (I have vol. 1, 2 & 3) as well as my own material.
