Hi there, I am Harriet and thanks for reading my profile!
I am a native British Physicist and Cambridge professional, with over 3 years' experience teaching English to a wide range of levels. I can help you with:
Please feel welcome to bring any materials you wish to work on to class, such as homework tasks or interview preparation or IETLS questions etc.
Additionally, I am a trained Clinical Scientist and can help you with any technical English if you are a professional looking to work on your business-style English.
Really excited to meet you and to have some fun learning English together!
I have taught students in Costa Rica, Spain, and the UK, both in schools and online and I am here to help you gain confidence in all aspects of your English proficiency.
Over the past 2 years I have been conducting online tutoring for students across the world from countries such as Russia, Ukraine, Poland, China, Japan, Spain, Turkey, etc. and have gained so much experience in meeting new students, finding the key areas to focus on and building lasting partnerships to build students' confidence and English skills dramatically!
I speak Spanish (C1), French (A2) and Russian (A1) and am able to empathise with students due to my own experience learning new languages.
I tailor my lessons to each individual's needs and like to take the time to discover each person's learning style and goals, such as improving conversational English, practising to pass an IELTS exam, or to engage with children's topics, keeping it light and fun (not too grammar heavy because no-one likes that!!).
With children, I typically opt for games and to get them talking about something they're passionate about which really helps break through the awkwardness of talking to someone new!
Games are SUPER important in my opinion when learning languages (I'm trying Russian right now and finding it so much easier and happier watching videos for kids to pick up basic pronunciation and improve my memory).
If you're more serious about your topics, I also have some prepared materials on email writing, spotting grammar mistakes, creative writing, role play etc.
I'm a big believer in homework so be prepared for some epic tasks to bring to class! (No pressure!)
I am a very easy-going teacher if you simply want someone to converse with, similarly I can be very strict with pronunciation or grammar.
