Hi, I'm Fiona. I'm from England and I've been an English language teacher in schools and private language centres since 2009. I've been teaching online for the past 5 years.
I enjoy teaching online because I can really help people learn and use the actual language they need.
When I started learning Khmer (the Cambodian language), I found that the topics in the book weren't really what I needed. Luckily my Khmer language tutor understood this and taught me the words I really needed to know. I aim to do the same when I'm teaching; each lesson is unique and planned for especially for you!
So, I grew up and finished my education in England but I now live in Cambodia in South-East Asia!
Living in a non-English speaking country, I fully understand the challenges of learning and using a foreign language, however I have a passion for language and believe that you're never too old or too young to learn!
Before I became an English teacher, I studied art and graphic design and this creative background helps me to create unique, interesting lessons and materials which will help you meet your exact language needs and accomplish your goals.
Current and past students say that I am friendly and easy to talk to and I like to agree!
I believe that you learn better when you are interested and engaged so my lessons are customized to each learner's specific interests as well as their individual language needs.
I take the time in our first lesson to find out as much about you and your English language needs as I can so you can get the most out of your online lessons.
I like to use a combination of video and screen sharing; I use my computer like a whiteboard and write and draw on it during the lesson as I would in a real classroom.
I have many materials that we can use in lessons including some of the most popular English textbooks books, many of my own self-created materials, anything online, or nothing at all and simply talk!
If there's anything you wish to know before booking your lesson with me, please contact me and I'll get back to as soon as possible.
