I am an experienced and reliable tutor of Welsh, English and Italian, with a passion for language which I love passing onto others.
I grew up bilingual in rural North Wales, and the main focus of my online teaching in recent years has been on the Welsh language. I feel privileged to have a number of regular students, spanning a wide range of ages, across the North and South of Wales, as well as further afield.
After graduating in Linguistics, I spent a number of years abroad, gaining experience of teaching English as a foreign language to students of all ages - from toddlers to adults - in a wide range of settings, in Latvia, Italy and Ghana, as well as in the UK.
I gained a Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA qualification) in 2013, before going on to complete an MA in Comparative Linguistics at the University of Leiden in the Netherlands, where I am still based.
I have now branched out into translation, which I combine with my online and face-to-face language tuition.
I believe lessons should be relevant, interesting and tailored to the student's needs and interests.
