As an experienced language learner, I am excited to share the opportunities and fulfilment that foreign languages can bring.
Using a CELTA communicative approach certified by Cambridge English and the British Council, I can help you build confidence in your language ability and meet your English goals.
More than a standard Eikaiwa establishment, I tailor my lessons and materials to the individual needs of every student, and accelerate your learning in a friendly, compassionate and professional environment.
For private clients, lessons can take place in a nearby café, at your office, or your own home. For corporate clients I can teach at your premises. At our first meeting I will carry out a needs assessment to ascertain your level, goals and learning style, and develop a curriculum according to your needs.
I use only the best lesson materials and learning supports, primarily from New English File, Cutting Edge, Market Leader and Cambridge English. I also have a library of self-created materials that I have accumulated over my five years of teaching experience, and I create additional supports according to your own needs and interests.
Based on your availability and learning style, I will also recommend level-appropriate media, mobile apps and readers to support your English progress in your everyday life.
As well as experience in academic and business environments, I am also particularly suited to teaching children. I've taught in primary, secondary and summer schools around the world, and I consider it a true priviledge to nurture children's enthusiasm for language.
I am CELTYL certified for young learners and my lessons have a strong sense of fun. Each activity is planned with specific language goals in mind, and conducted in a way that children can relate to.
Beyond language teaching, I also offer training for existing teachers and institutions. In the past I've presented Teacher Development sessions on pronunciation, phonics, IT, cultural awareness and motivating young learners, as well as communicative training seminars in the UK, Spain, Italy and Japan.
At companies I can present development seminars on a range of skills including IT, search engine optimisation, cultural awareness, presentation skills and localisation. Please get in touch to discuss your specific requirements.
