-------------------------NATIVE BRITISH ENGLISH TEACHER ------------------------------
Hi there, I'm a 28 year old English teacher from the UK and I have taught English for over five years in a number of different countries. I´m also a documentary filmmaker with my most successful film about the Amazon getting into a number of film festivals this year!
I have taught a variety of students with different linguistic needs. This has included teaching teenagers and professionals in Barcelona and the UK, business executives in Belgium and local communities in Ecuador!
I have worked at a language institute for business managers in Belgium for the past three years. I have specialised in teaching business English and preparing students for specific situations they will experience in their professional lives. I can offer classes focused on:
- English for meetings
- English for interviews
- English for presentations
- English for negotiations
- General conversational English
My teaching style focuses on identifying the areas that students need to improve, giving realistic goals to work towards and clear strategies of how to achieve these goals.
I also make lessons as engaging as possible, designed specifically for student's needs and personal or professional interests based on my belief that enjoying speaking English is the most important step towards improvement!
Although Business English is my specialism, I am also very open to students who are just starting to learn English or who would like to learn English for travelling or exploring the world.
Please get in touch for an initial trail lesson so I can assess your linguistic needs, set some clear goals and start helping you improve your English!
