About Me

Do you need to improve your speaking skills? My lessons are all conversation and speaking based that focus on enhancing speaking skills and clear communication. My passion is teaching students essential communication skills in English, but they can also be translated for use in your native language. Exceptional communication skills are one of the most important qualifications that companies and organizations are looking for. I use a variety of non-standard activities to achieve this. In addition to teaching, I also do personal coaching. I believe that whether you are applying for a job, writing an English test or just trying to speak with assurance, the most important thing is to have confidence in your ability and that you can achieve your goals. I am happy to announce that I am now certified to offer personal coaching with my lessons!

In what situation can coaching be beneficial?

*Establishing strategies and taking action towards achieving goals
*Gain personal awareness and insight
*Receive support for improving specific skills such as communication, conflict management, public speaking and so on.
*Overcome obstacles, insecurities and low confidence
*Reduce stress and live happier lives

For students requiring more traditional lessons, I am offering lessons that focus on IELTS preparation, Job, University and Medical Residency Interviews. In addition, I am presently writing a book so I can help students to improve their writing skills whether it’s a resume, cover letter or a piece of creative writing

My approach understanding, patient and fun!

**For student's from Asian countries, please message me for more suitable evening and morning class times. Book a trial lesson for more information!
