Relaxed but thorough!
I like my students to feel at ease when we work together - a happy student learns best! I always do an initial assessment for each student and will ask you about your preferred learning styles: maybe you like to do things by rules and learn lots of grammar, maybe you prefer to play lots of games.
Similarly, you might want to focus on your speaking, listening, writing or reading or you might need specialised language for business, academia or socialising. If there's just one area you need to focus on, it's no problem.
I will assess you and then work with you to pinpoint your problems providing targeted teaching that explains the correct English for that context.
If your formal understanding of English is good but you want to become more fluent, we can look at culture, slang and social language to help you fit in better with your peers. Often, informal language is the key to better business networking - you need to be able to chat in the bar after a meeting to make contacts!
Similarly, if your formal English is good but your accent is a problem, we can work together to improve this. To understanding speakers from other countries, much of what native speakers have trouble with is their stress patterns and intonation.
Whether you need help with revision for exams, want to learn for fun, want to improve your chances of business or just need someone to support you to study harder, I can help you!
I can also work with children 10+ - although my qualification is an adult one, the methods are the same and I have many, many hours of classroom experience with junior-age students and teenagers.
I will always provide a lesson that meets your style and needs. Whether you want serious work or lots of games, and whether you need work on your formal or informal language, it will always be based on proper grammar, authentic use and rules.
