I'm a CELTA qualified native English speaker with a background in business. I hold an MBA and am a qualified business coach. I'm looking to help business professionals acquire, develop and perfect their English competence, whether that be to achieve a required test score, help with the transition into a new role, location or situation that requires additional English language skills or simply to address a specific contextual need such as preparing a presentation, facilitating a meeting or producing a document. Business-related themes that I typically explore with students including working from home, motivation, culture, persuasion, difficult conversations, bias and planning.
My teaching methods are informal and relaxed and I adjust my teaching style and lesson plan to meet the needs of my students. I use a lot of video to prompt conversation and focus my lessons on speaking, listening and reading but we will typically do a grammar and vocabulary exercise in each session. From time to time, and with my students' permission, I will record the lesson and will use the audio file to compile a report detailing improvement areas such as pronunciation or grammar. My goal is to help you improve your English within the kind of real-life business scenarios you encounter every day and...above all...have fun on the journey!
