Hello, I’m Charlotte. I’m a TESOL certified English teacher and native speaker from London, England. From 2002-2016 I volunteered as an English teacher in my spare time, helping people new to England to settle into the country, and have also taught English in Asia for shorter periods (in fact, I am currently living in Singapore). In January 2016 I decided to move into teaching English full time, specializing in online tuition, and in the last year I have taught over 1,500 lessons online to students from all over the world.
I have two main methods of teaching. The first is a structured approach. I have written a ten unit course covering familiar topics such as family, food, and travel from a mature perspective. Each unit covers the discussion of a text, new vocabulary, and grammar work, and there is plenty of opportunity for you to give your own opinion on each subject. Each unit also comes with an audio recording (read by me) to accompany the written text.
The second method is to teach through guided conversation. This is a chance for us to have a discussion on a subject chosen by you, where I can offer you constructive suggestions on grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation. This is also a good opportunity to practice public speaking, presentation skills, and debating skills, as well as to pick up some uniquely British expressions!
In addition, I help to prepare students for both the general and academic IELTS exams. Through practice papers, and grammar and vocabulary reviews together we identify areas needed for improvement. Of course, tips, hints, study methods, and resources are offered.
There is a lot of flexibility to the lessons, and I am very happy to help with interview preparation, study assistance, or any other need which might arise. My lessons are designed to be relaxed and nurturing, with as much value placed on growing confidence as on gathering knowledge. I’m a very friendly person who enjoys teaching very much, and I hope to meet you soon!
Please note: At the moment I am available only to Intermediate students and above.
