This is how 3 referees rated Edna:
I am an enthusiastic, successful Teaching Professional with significant experience as European Project Manager and Public Relations in the educational field.
I have more than 25 years of language teaching in diverse environments, from secondary and vocational schools to colleges, as a well as a private tutor. I consider myself very successful in motivating students and coping with their individual needs and expectations of communicating efficiently in a foreign/second language.
I offer tuition in all levels of language learning, including degree level and adults, interested in improving their language skills for business, travelling, cultural or family purposes.
I encourage students to enjoy and collaborate in their learning.
I aim to provide good quality teaching in a homely atmosphere, that enhances their confidence and their motivation.
I focus on improving the spoken fluency and the listening skills of my students while developing their confidence in reading and discussing interesting topics. Grammar is also an essential part of my tuition, but it is learnt according to the topics, explained in context and consolidated with fun practice. Culture is also fundamental in each lesson.
I always ensure adequate differentiation in my teaching, taking into consideration the individual learning needs and learning styles of my students. This results in good communication between both parties and the learner assessment throughout the course. Paramount to my approach is the enthusiasm for the subjects I teach. I sincerely enjoy teaching and watching students improve their skills and being pleased with their progress.
I also have extensive experience working with adult learners, preparing them to exams or their business and travelling, as well as supporting them in their inclusion in a foreign culture.

You are a very motivated student, and I am delighted to teach you and see you making progress.
Our lessons so far have been easy to follow, informative and very enjoyable. Catarina has shared a variety of useful resources that not only support our independent learning but prepares us for our f2f sessions as well.
We cannot recommend her enough!
