Prior to teaching, I worked for the National Westminster Bank in its international division in various departments with postings to Paris and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia for some 12 years. I have used both my French and Spanish in a business context. I also offer business French and Spanish.
My approach to teaching can be summed up in just three words, fun, focus and progress.
Fun - language learning has to be, first and foremost, fun.
Focus - what is the aim of the lessons and are they met?
Progress - what progress is made in the lesson and over time? Progress is kept under constant review
There it is - fun,focus and progress.
