Highly Qualified and Experienced English Language Teacher
English language tuition (face-to-face £40/hr and online £35/hr). 30 minutes extra free with first lesson booked. About me: I have over 12 years' experience of teaching English as a Foreign Language (EFL) to adults both in group, 1:1 and online settings. I have worked both abroad and in the UK so am used to teaching a range of nationalities. In addition, I enjoy travelling and speak a number of languages (to varying levels!) which helps when explaining the differences in grammar between languages. I have both the CELTA and DELTA professional qualifications and recently obtained a distinction for a Masters Degree on teaching and learning theories relating to EFL. I have been working at a prestigious and well-established school in London for the last 8 years but have now relocated to the South West (Bridport). I am a highly competent and dynamic individual, always cheerful with great interpersonal skills. I am passionate about teaching English and this enthusiasm is reflected in my lessons. All lessons are geared towards an individual's specific needs and, where possible, are presented in an authentic context. In this way, lessons should be engaging, meaningful and therefore memorable. I am dedicated to maximising my students' potential and expect my students to be motivated, committed, and prepared to work hard. What I specialise in: General English = fluency and accuracy (speaking/writing) comprehension (listening/reading) vocabulary expansion grammatical range/accuracy everyday/social English proofreading Exam preparation = I have an excellent track record in helping students to maximise their exam performance in the following exams: IELTS (Academic & General) CAE (Advanced) FCE (First) BEC Higher (Advanced) BEC Vantage (Upper Intermediate) Academic English = vocabulary expansion features of academic writing paragraph/essay structure listening/note-taking skills reading/identifying & summarising main points of a text paraphrasing and referencing proofreading essays presentation preparation Business & Professional English = topic-related language functional language for meeting/greeting, making arrangements, giving opinions diplomatically, agreeing/disagreeing, participating in meetings, negotiating, giving presentations business writing (emails, reports, describing trends) presentation preparation If there is anything else related to English which you need help with, please do not hesitate to contact me and I'll do my best to help.
