Hello, my name is Gill. I am a native English TEFL Teacher and my career has been filled with a wonderful variety of teaching and training roles. I have a Higher National Diploma in Hotel Management from Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh. I have been teaching English for 9 years, from children to adults, from Beginners to First Certificate, all preparing for Cambridge English Exams. I have spent 3 years living and teaching English in Spain and have now live in Scotland.
Focussing on conversational English, I can also assist in subjects such as Hospitality, Customer Service, employment, interviewing and recruitment. My lessons are relaxed and flexible, making you feel comfortable and confident about learning English. I use authentic materials to make your experience of learning English as real and natural as possible. Some areas I focus on: - everyday English conversations and vocabulary - personalising our lessons to suit your needs e.g. holiday vocabulary. I offer Business English working on presentation practice and interview skills.
I am friendly and enjoy meeting people of all nationalities and I quickly build a rapport with all my students. I love animals and have a cat and a dog. I love walking with my dog, cooking dishes from all over the world, travelling, music and meeting new people. I hope I have the opportunity of meeting you soon. Please message me to arrange a suitable time for your class.Thank you.
