my name is Jenni and I am a bilingual native speaker of English and Finnish. My English accent is British and my Finnish has a very neutral accent.
I am a CELTA certified English teacher and have been teaching English full-time since 2014 in countries such as Ireland, China and Japan. I have taught both adults and children in private lessons as well as groups. My students have been everything from business professionals to teenagers preparing for their exchange year abroad to young children having their first contact with a foreign language.
My greatest strength as a teacher is my experience from using different methods of teaching as well as different levels of students. I customise all my lessons to my students’ needs.
Whether you are just beginning to learn English or already have a high level of English and are looking to keep up your skills or perhaps master a grammar point, I am confident I can help you achieve your goal.
As a teacher I will customise each of our lessons to your needs and wants. Usually this means that I will assess your level of English during our first lesson. Then by asking you specific questions I find out more about why you are studying English and what is the goal you wish to achieve.We will also together decide what kind of materials (if any) we will use during our lessons. All of this I do so I know how to help you achieve your personal goal. A happy student makes a happy teacher!
I look forward to our lessons!
