About Me

Hello, I'm Vivienne from England. I have been a part time teacher for the past 10 years. I love to teach so I have always fitted some teaching around my main job. I have taught children and adults, students and professionals.
My lessons usually focus on conversation as I think this is the quickest way to learn a language that sounds natural.
I pride myself on being patient and I like to keep my lessons light and fun, but at the same time, being relevant to my student's needs.
