Native speaker of UK English. Experienced, qualified EFL and ESOL tutor I enjoy working students of all ages. Lessons are conducted one to one online, using Skype.
Contact me for help with Business English, English Pronunciation and Accent Reduction. Rates are negotiable.
My first experience of EFL teaching was in the Findhorn Community in Scotland, just 2 days after successfully completing my TEFL course at the Bell School in Cambridge.It was a course I facilitated 5 times.
In the 15 years following that, I've gained a PGCE in Further Education and been lucky enough to work with students of all ages, abilities and educational backgrounds; some in private schools in Italy, others in Further Education in the UK. I have mentored new teachers, and co-designed, piloted and delivered ESOL courses for ‘Keeping Up with the Children’, teaching parents activities that they can do with their children to help them to learn English themselves, while supporting their children’s Literacy skills. I have been an Additional Learning Support tutor for full time overseas students taking full time courses in English.
I have taught English through IT, Touch Typing, Word Processing, Employability Skills and Pronunciation.
My main focus is Accent Reduction/Pronunciation and I am keen to work with motivated learners, I assess what is needed and get to know my students in the initial sessions. We agree learning goals and which language skills to focus on. I set work to do outside of the sessions and give personalized, positive feedback. Tell me how you will be using the language e.g. for a cleaning job, to delivering a presentation.
We can base activities around:
I look forward to hearing from you.
