Experienced CELTA-trained English native speaker offers fun, informative English language lessons to all levels. I am a modern languages graduate myself (I studied Spanish, German and French), so I kn

Methodology

I am a diligent teacher who tries to make classes both fun and educational. I try to engage students as much as possible and aim to teach concepts simply and clearly. I think most people learn by doing, so my classes are very practical.

Background

I am a CELTA-qualified native English speaker with several years' experience teaching English as a foreign language in the UK (Alba English and Randolph School of English, both in Edinburgh), France (Les Petits Bilingues, Paris), Spain (Escuela Oficial de Idiomas and Instituto Hemingway, in Santander and Bilbao respectively) and Germany (teaching intern in various high schools).

I have a first class undergraduate degree from Durham University in French, German and Spanish and I speak these languages fluently. I can easily empathise with my students learning English, given my own experience as a foreign language student.

I have a masters degree in translating and interpreting from Bath University, so am also qualified to translate, interpret and proofread. I have translated and proofread several publications, including historical, legal and scientific texts.

A nice tutor. She helped me with improving my English and is a great source of knowledge about different languages. When talking to her I found that she is fluent in German too.
