About me

I like finding out about my students and why learning English is specifically important to you. This way, I can create personalised and meaningful lessons focused exclusively on what you need.

I speak conversational Mandarin, which I learned while teaching English in China. Therefore, I really understand how difficult and frustrating it can be to learn a foreign language and how important it is to find a good teacher. Someone who is willing to build your confidence, provide encouragement and correct your mistakes.

I am a kind and patient teacher and I understand how important it is to create a fun, safe environment where you can learn to use English with confidence.

Outside of teaching, I love hiking, reading, playing chess and collecting shells on the beach with my four-year-old son.
