📍 Trial/first lesson:
I will assess your particular requirements using my specially created comprehensive needs analysis questionnaire. This can be done before or during our first lesson, as you prefer. We will then discuss your needs and explore how I can help you to excel.
📍 My lessons:
I believe that learning should be enjoyable while real-world relevant. I use a wide variety of resources, including bespoke interactive PowerPoint presentations, rather than simply relying on dull textbooks alone! Our lessons will feature a learning so you know what to expect. Together, we will review your progress at the end of each lesson (or topic), ensuring you stay on track with your goals.
📍 My interests:
Yes, in case you were wondering, I do love drinking tea (black with milk, naturally). I like to combine tea drinking with any of the following: travel, philosophy, politics, business & entrepreneurship, probability/risk theory and religious studies. I also enjoy board games, writing articles, reading books, pub quizzes, and of course, good food.
