About Me

Background:
I’m a qualified English teacher with 7 years of experience in higher education. I’m highly educated in the field of languages and hold a BA Degree in Language and Culture, a BA(hons) Degree in French, a CELTA, and an MA in French. After my studies in South Africa, I moved to France where I taught English in both secondary and tertiary institutions. I’ve taught general, as well as specialised English: business, aviation, engineering, physics, chemistry and medicine. I’m currently a Learning Designer and work with top universities to design and produce online courses.

How I approach my lessons:
During the first lesson, I ask students to fill out a questionnaire which allows me to establish the strengths and weaknesses of the student as it pertains to English. I follow this up with a report and a “curriculum” designed according to the student’s areas of improvement. Lessons will be conducted accordingly.

My areas of expertise:
I specialise in English grammar and writing, as I believe they go hand in hand. I’m also experienced in conducting casual, yet constructive, conversation classes. These casual conversation classes are key in building valuable vocabulary. Ultimately, it all comes down to the needs of the student.

My price include
- Interactive lessons, structured to the specific needs of the student.
- Tailored lesson plans with clear Lesson Outcomes.
- Lesson Reports, which I provide after every lesson.
- Progress Reports, which I provide every two weeks.
- Homework

I’m extremely passionate about languages; I’m fully trilingual and currently working on mastering my 4th language. I would love to help you on your language journey and open the door to endless possibilities that comes with learning English.
