I am a friendly, caring and committed teacher who finds both learning languages and interacting with students extremely rewarding.
I have taught English in London and also travelled overseas, teaching English ‘in company’ in Spain, Germany, Switzerland and Turkey.
I have recently been teaching myself Portuguese so that I can adapt quickly to life in Lisbon.
My most recent EFL job has been for a language school in London, teaching mainly large size classes of students from a huge range of countries. The main focus has been on speaking and pronunciation.
What makes me different as a teacher is that I have vast experience in the world of work outside teaching, which really helps me keep my classes fresh and relevant.
