About Me

Now accepting new students! Get in touch!
I'm Jocelyn, from London, and I have been teaching English for over 10 years. I am an expert in pronunciation and accent reduction, advanced level English and exam preparation. I taught Linguistics, Phonetics and Phonology at a university. I have taught students of many different nationalities, both individuals and groups. I think learning a language should be interactive and engaging so I use a combination of skills and really personalise my lessons according to my students needs. I live in Latin America so I am also fluent in Spanish.
In your classes you can focus on any and/or all of the following themes:
Grammar, Listening and Reading Comprehension, Pronunciation and Accent Reduction (British or American), Business English, Communication and Speaking Skills, TED talks or Breaking News for Communication and Discussion, Exam Preparation (IELTS, TOEFL, CAE, CPE) and many other topics!
