Personal Description:

I am a professionally qualified English teacher with years of experience teaching both adults and children. 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.

Tutoring Experience:

I teach English with Harrow Community and Family Learning and at a small private college where I work with students who are complete beginners up to those requiring Cambridge Exam preparation and business English.

I specialise in working with small business owners and individuals who want to develop their skills in all areas of English for business which includes proofreading, email and telephone English.

I also teach conversation classes 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 exam preparation for those working towards Cambridge examinations (KET, PET, FCE, CAE and CPE) and help you to improve in all four key areas. Additional activities are given for you to complete before the next lesson so that you are continually learning.

I also tutor children from KS1 to GCSE English, and up to KS2 in Maths. I also teach children who have English as a second language and require additional support at home with their studies.

I offer lessons via Skype and Google Hangouts using online tools to enhance the lesson. You are able to do interactive exercises on your computer as well as have homework assigned.

Tutoring Approach:

With adults who are learning English as a second language, my aim is to build confidence because with confidence you are more willing to push your own boundaries. Speaking English fluently is achievable through speaking to native speakers, therefore with lessons that focus on specific topics and expressions, you will be able to speak with more confidence quickly whilst having fun.

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.

When teaching children, I aim to develop the necessary skills so that they can progress and excel in school. Learning should be fun and engaging, so I used games and puzzles as well as traditional methods when teaching.
