About Me

Are you a professional woman who finds it difficult at times to hold a conversation with friends or colleagues in English? If so, I am here to help you to build to a level of confidence that will enable to you to be respected in your field of work whether you are speaking to other Europeans or to ‘native’ English speakers. If you join me, we will discuss your goals and any fears you may have with speaking and then how to bring you to the next level.

I offer a programme of personalized lessons to cover your needs – we can work on conversational skills, grammar aspects, report writing or any other skills to ensure you are clear and coherent in all forms. A lot of the learning is achieved through guided conversations where you can tell me about topics that interest you, in English.

I am a qualified teacher and have many years of experience in teaching. I have been teaching on Verbling since the beginning of the pandemic and I understand how it feels to lack confidence when you try something new. I would love to see you a couple of times a week, to help you see your own progression and rising ability in speaking English.

Please, come on board and book your first lesson with me!
Looking forward to meeting you soon, Claire.
