I have had the wonderful opportunity to live in Singapore, where I worked at an international school teaching ESL to children from age 6 upwards. I have also lived and worked as a private tutor in Florence. While I was there, I studied Art History and Italian, and travelled around the country with its amazing art and architecture.
Living abroad has given me an understanding of the difficulties of learning a new language, especially the confidence needed to speak it. To encourage students to practise English, I try to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere in my classes using interesting topics and activities.
Since returning to Bath, I′ve been teaching classes of adults and juniors on courses for general English (which includes working towards a presentation) and exam preparation including IELTS, FCE and CAE.
I also really enjoy teaching young children and like to use traditional stories, rhymes and songs. I find this stimulates a child′s imagination, and encourages fluency. I love teaching English to learners of all ages and nationalities and I′m really looking forward to meeting new students online, and helping you reach your particular learning goals.
