Personal Description:

I love helping students achieve their best – it is so rewarding to see them improve and to make sure it's fun and interesting along the way.

Teaching Experience:

I began tutoring as a teenager. Since then, as well as tutoring, I've worked as a volunteer teacher in Paraguay and Ecuador and taught essay writing, translation and literature for universities.

===Teaching experience===
2003 - ongoing: private tutor
2021: volunteer coaching for Oxbridge interviews
2014-2017: junior academic at University of Cambridge
2016: seminar at UCL
2009: volunteer teacher in Ecuador

2017: 'Learn English: Improving Spoken English Book 1' (available on Amazon under my maiden name)
2016: learning resource for Oxbridge applicants to Modern and Medieval Languages (HE+: 'Saudade: that untranslatable feeling')
2016: academic article for Journal of Anglo-Portuguese Studies
2011: script for educational Portuguese DVD about Fair Trade for Portuguese schools ('Vidas e Dúvidas no Mundo do Chocolate')

Teaching Approach:

I believe in making lessons fun and the language learned relevant to the individual students' needs. Practical use of the target language is central from the start, making it a real tool for communication, which is great for overcoming initial shyness. Alongside this practical approach, I help you become comfortable with grammar topics so that you can use them as the building blocks of confident, fluid communication.

I work with students to find their most effective learning style and design lessons and courses around their interests. I can also help anxious students learn how to minimise the impact of stress on their learning.
