A fully qualified and professional linguist, teacher and actress, I am currently pursuing a varied career as a specialist coach in French, German, English as a Foreign Language, Latin, Speech & Drama and Acting.
I have taught extensively in schools, colleges, industry/commerce (eg Michelin Tyre Company) and freelance.
Organized, enthusiastic and motivating, I enjoy the proven ability to communicate material successfully to individuals, classes and audiences of all ages, and have accordingly gained the respect, appreciation and love of hundreds of students (young and old) in my 25 years' experience as a teacher, lecturer and private tutor.
Key words for me as a trainer are clarity, simplicity, patience, variety, appropriately graded steps, achievable but real challenges, empowerment and fun - all with a view to ensuring my students make the progress and enjoy the learning satisfaction they deserve.
