Hi, my name is Francesca and I am a language enthusiast.
I have always been passionate about other languages and cultures - this is why I love teaching and learning them! My students so far have enjoyed our lessons and become autonomous in their learning - which is my main teaching aim. What do you like? What are you passionate about? That is a good starting point to get to know each other and plan our lessons according to your interests and needs.
I can offer traditional lessons on grammar and lessons aimed at developing specific areas such as speaking (improving fluency and pronunciation), GCSE/ A level revision, ESOL/IELTS preparation, etc. - anything you want to know more about!
