Personal Description:

I have a Master of Arts degree in English Literature from Edinburgh (1992). I currently live in Paris, France, and have done for more than twenty years (although I'm originally from London) and have spent much of my adult life in a multilingual environment (my own family is now multilingual!) All this puts me in the ideal position to understand the challenges learners face when learning or living/working in a new language.

My students will say that I'm fun, enthusiastic and empathetic.

Teaching Experience:

I have over twenty years of teaching English as a foreign language to school-level and adult learners.

My students have been of all ages and levels, from school age to university. I've taught at the University of Paris as well as various language schools catering to business learners.

I've taught students of all nationalities (I've taught in Spain, Turkey and Indonesia), but my widest experience has been with Francophone students; after more than twenty years in Paris I'm very familiar with the specific grammatical challenges faced by French-speaking students studying English, as well as pronunciation difficulties. My knowledge of French helps explain certain structures… however I love teaching people who speak all different languages, and I love teaching French as well!

Teaching Approach:

I'm passionate about helping my students achieve real progress. To this end, I work with the students to establish their specific problem areas; we then zone in on them with the aim of making massive improvement.
