Personal Description:

I am 60 years of age, married and have two adult children. I come from Finland and love different countries and languages, hence I came to England when young, worked here and studied here, eventually becoming a teacher. We have travelled extensively and enjoy experiencing other cultures.

We worked in South Africa for three years in the poorer areas. More recently I have worked in the community on befriending projects, started a Food Bank project, helping foreign people to access language learning in Worthing locally, and in administration for a local church.

Tutoring Experience:

I started teaching in 1992, teaching French in a secondary school, and since then have taught in several schools in both East and West Sussex. I also taught English to primary school age children in South Africa. I have also experience in teaching English to foreigners, mostly immigrants to England. I currently teach English in a local language centre.

Tutoring Approach:

I am happy to teach individually, in a home or in a school environment. I drive so am able to travel. I am keen to fit in with the tutee's timetable and requirements and would like to plan and tailor my tutoring according to the needs and levels of the tutee.
