English (Foreign Language)
I am a professional full time tutor and qualified teacher.
I teach business English and academic English to those who wish to develop skills in all areas of English.
I thoroughly enjoy teaching because by setting achievable goals it is a pleasure to see a student grow in confidence when their language and literacy skills improves.
I have Enhanced Disclosure (formerly CRB) which shows that I do not have a criminal record.
For business, I work with business owners and/or employees who want to improve their English skills for work. I help with writing letters and emails, speaking on the telephone and proofreading. I tailor the lessons to your needs, therefore you will learn grammar, vocabulary and technical terms related to your work which will help you to write your own emails/letters and speak to your customers/clients confidently.
For higher education and IELTS students, I will teach you how to write in an academic style, develop your vocabulary, structure and organise your writing, and speak with your peers.
I tutor children from primary to secondary school in English. I have helped children to learn phonics and develop their reading skills which helps them to love reading. I prepare children for any English assessments they may have to sit so that they are not scared of the tests and are more confident. I help them to develop writing and reading comprehension skills using fun activities to ensure they fully enjoy learning.
I also teach conversation skills where you are able to learn to speak English fluently. In each lesson we focus on specific topics, expressions and grammar to have you speaking with confidence. My lessons are tailored to each student which results in clear and well-structured lessons that help with you with your specific needs.
I offer lessons via Skype and Zoom together with an online teaching platform to enhance the lessons. You are able to do interactive exercises on your computer as well as have homework assigned.
My aim is to build confidence, because with confidence you are more willing to push your own boundaries. I will help you develop your writing skills, building vocabulary, and develop your knowledge in all areas of grammar.I
Every lesson is tailored to your needs. I use a variety of resources to aid your learning and help you to achieve your learning goals.
With younger children, I use fun and creative methods to teach phonics and develop their reading skills. I aim to develop the necessary skills to progress and excel in school so they are better prepared to start their GCSEs. Learning should be fun and engaging, so I used games and puzzles as well as traditional methods when teaching. Many children struggle in the development of reading skills I use various methods to help them engage with texts.
