I have 20 yrs teaching experience in Speech & Drama, 2 x London-based Speech & Drama Teaching Certificates, a BA in English Language and Literature, TEFL certificate, FCE Cambridge Certificate (How to Teach English First) & EF SET Certificate with C2 proficiency in English. Winner of 2012 Short Story Competition.
I've taught English to foreigners online for four years and have a lot of experience with children.
I'm a dedicated, dynamic and very engaged teacher with a gift for bringing material alive and applying it to real language practice.
My drama training ensures that I am a top teacher for phonics, grammar, correct pronunciation and confident communication.
I tailor classes to students' learning styles and temperaments.
I'm a very instinctive, astute and determined teacher but also relaxed, creative and laugh a lot! I sing well, play the ukulele and love poetry and literature.
I use the Communicative Method with story, song, lyrics, rhyme, conversation, role-playing. Vocabulary is organically built, reviewed and used in natural discussion.
I use PPT and text documents as necessary for spelling and grammar. I help my students to understand how words and phrases are constructed with spider-word webs to connect words, ideas, phrases and popular expressions.
I prefer British English but have taught English with US spelling and pronunciation.
I am inspiring, very motivating, always supportive but will challenge my students to be their best.
