I'm a native English speaker from the northeast of England, currently based in Edinburgh, Scotland teaching General English to teenagers and adults. I've been a teacher for 6 years (since March 2014) and have taught in Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), Budapest (Hungary), Almeria (Spain), Oxford and Edinburgh (U.K.). I completed my CELTA in 2015 and DELTA in 2019.
I have experience with learners of all ages, and levels ranging from beginner to proficiency. I've taught in local primary schools in Vietnam, in the Hungarian parliament and a selection of language schools. This includes classes of up to 50 students, one-to-one lessons and specialised courses for exam preparation (IELTS, KET, PET etc.).
My speciality in teaching is helping to improve confidence in speaking and to extend understanding beyond the scope of the classroom. I try to focus specifically on the needs of students and practical aspects of language that will most benefit learners. My lessons are conversational and I am good at picking up on common mistakes/habits that should be addressed. I can offer homework and written feedback on each lesson. Get in touch for a tree trial. Thanks!
