I'm a CELTA qualified native English speaker with a background in business. I hold an MBA and am a qualified business coach. I'm looking to help business professionals acquire, develop and perfect their English competence, whether that be to achieve a required test score, help with the transition into a new role, location or situation that requires additional English language skills or simply to address a specific contextual need such as preparing a presentation, facilitating a meeting or producing a document. General and business-related themes that I typically explore with students include travel, working from home, motivation, culture, history, marketing and advertising, climate change, difficult conversations, unconscious bias and planning.
My teaching methods are informal and relaxed and I adjust my teaching style and lesson plan to meet the needs of my students. I use a lot of video and reading material to prompt conversation and focus my lessons on speaking, listening and reading but we will typically do a pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary exercise in each session. From time to time, and with my students' permission, I will record the lesson and will use the audio file to compile a report detailing improvement areas such as pronunciation or grammar. My goal is to help you improve your English within the kind of real-life business scenarios you encounter every day and...above all...have fun on the journey!
