English (Foreign Language)
Hi, I'm Shona. I live in Bromley in Greater London and am ready to help students who love to learn! I have both a University of Cambridge Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) and Masters degree in business.
I have 6 years English as a Foreign Language teaching experience in both London and Istanbul. I have also worked for the past three years in a number of management consultancy roles with public and private sector clients. Having both teaching and business experience, I can effectively combine these skills to teach English to business professionals and university students. I also have experience in helping students achieve IELTs success.
In my free time I spend time with family and friends, travel, read, cook, watch films and TV, and love being outdoors.

Student-centred and flexible. Every student is different and has their own style of learning. Lessons are interactive and interesting - but I still expect my students to work hard!
Adult English Language students are usually bored of grammar books and worksheets and want to practice their English conversation skills which will be useful for their academic or business life. Therefore the language skills, grammar and vocabulary I teach are selected to be most useful for every individual student. We do not use generic text books.
Please note that £30ph is the price for students within a 5 miles radius of BR7. Students wishing to take lessons further afield will be expected to cover travel costs. Lessons are minimum 90 minutes within 5 miles and minimum 2 hours within 10 miles.
