I am a highly-qualified (DELTA & PGCE) English teaching professional with nearly 20 years' experience in a variety of educational settings. I've been teaching online courses, focusing mainly on English for academic and professional purposes, since 2017.
Need a short intensive course? Want to build up your skills and confidence over a longer period? I can offer the following (and more):
Improving your English for academic study.
Helping you with the language skills you need for your work, or other specific situations.
Preparing you for English language exams.
Getting you ready for job interviews.
Honing your writing skills: content, accuracy and style.
Enriching your vocabulary.
Working on spoken expression (British English!), pronunciation and intonation.
Why choose me?
Passionate about language, I enjoy planning and delivering online courses: using interesting and authentic material, boosting productive skills and motivating my students to get the most out of their learning. I'm an experienced one-to-one tutor and truly believe in a learner-centred approach.
I have a wealth of teaching, training and education management experience, and would be happy to answer any questions about this. I spent the last three summers teaching English for Academic Purposes at a UK university. I know how to support university students with dissertations, essays, discussions and presentations. I possess excellent written skills in English and am good at helping my students produce appropriate and accurate writing, especially at higher levels.
As a hard-working freelancer based in the UK, my rates reflect my qualifications and experience, as well as the time spent outside of lessons on developing resources, correcting writing and creating the right course for you.
I'm creative, encouraging and effective at meeting learners' needs, so please get in touch with any queries before you book.
**I am not currently accepting free trial lessons but if you book a single lesson and are not satisfied enough to book more with me, I promise to refund you half the price!**
