I am a outward going person and enjoy communicating with students of all ages. I have a passion for languages and travel and therefore feel languages are extremely important to enjoy life and work to the full.
I am teacher of languages and have worked at all levels from primary clubs to GCSE and A level. As regards EFL, my latest encounter with students was teaching English to Algerian police to fly helicopters in 2010. I encourage any student to do extra individual learning as this will help them become more confident and independent in their us of the language.
I will offer diverse ways of tackling a subject and will aim to cover all skill areas. I will also aim to recap frequently on structures learnt and encourage the student to respond in the language. I would use a mixture of online resources and useful text book chapters, besides CDs and grammar sessions.
