I am a Ph.D. history student and specialise in teaching Academic English. I also like to help intermediate and advanced students with conversation classes. I have helped academics who need to lecture in English and postgraduate students who have needed to improve their writing or speaking skills. In my classes I like you to be speaking as much as possible (after all, you can practice listening for free anytime!) I like to see my students progress each class and challenge them. The most important thing is for classes to be fun and interesting, otherwise learning becomes a chore and people give up. My approach is friendly and relaxed, and I am a very patient person. I am from the UK and have a neutral, non-regional British accent.
