Personal Description:

Hi,
I am a very easy going individual with a huge passion for languages.
I'm a UCL graduate with Masters degree in Phonetics (dept. of Linguistics and Psychology).

Sharing my passion is what I enjoy doing, so get in touch!

Tutoring Experience:

2 years tutor in a private school - English
2 years private tutoring in London - Polish, English and Portuguese (beginner level)

Tutoring Approach:

Learning a language should be fun, and it can be, if you apply appropriate teaching techniques and methodologies to suit the individual's needs.
I mainly teach through repetition and speaking exercises (similar to Callan's method), so there is not much homework (and if there IS one, it is usually very interactive i.e. through media etc.), unless grammar is the main focus.
My approach is rather innovative and experimental and has got to do with over 20 years of research in language acquisition.

I truly believe that what most people call 'lack of talent' or 'lack of language skills' is not solely determined by genetics. Quite on the contrary:my experience, research and work with other fellow students have helped me realize that appropriate approach (also psychological) combined with correct training techniques and suitable methodology can change our language learning experience in GREAT measure.

As mentioned, I specialize in languages as they are being spoken, which does not mean I won't be able to help out with writing or reading.
Nevertheless, I am a sound expert, so if you want to learn more about accents, how to change your pronunciation or how to sound more like a native American/Canadian/Brit/Pole, you could not have found better.
