I am passionate teacher and I love what I do.
I am flexible as to methodology, from intensive exam coaching, formal "by the book" lessons, to more relaxed conversation classes.
I specialise in intensive exam coaching and my students typically achieve A* at A / AS-level!
I am also familiar with the 11+ exams, my daughter received various offers from both state grammars and independent schools.
I welcome ideas from my students about topics, if desired I can include audio-visual material into the lessons (news programmes, pop song lyrics, soap operas, etc) -you tell me WHAT you'd like to learn, and I'll work out a way for you to learn it. I have a range of authentic materials such as bus/train timetables, venue leaflets, maps, magazines and newspapers that we can incorporate if desired.
We can tailor contents around your specific area of work/study/interests.
I learnt English formally in school, and learned Spanish while working in Spain for six, and in Chile for one year.
I draw from my own language learning experiences to make lessons interesting and effective.
I am a mother of one "little" girl (who is bilingual in German and English and is currently learning Spanish).
I teach between 9:00am and 8pm most weekdays, and I can accommodate a small number of weekend/evening classes. I will always make room for anyone with an exam coming up!
Please drop me a line with any questions, I'm happy to answer all enquiries!
