About me

I have taught the Italian army in the Alps, one-to-one business English in England, Germany and France, as well as 7 years teaching and lecturing in English A Level in one of the most prestigious schools in Singapore. I have also taught many Italian, Spanish, Swiss and Dutch students, plus teaching primary and early teenagers from China.

I love teaching adults, teenagers and primary level. It is great to help each type of student enrich their confidence in English and so achieve their goals. I create most of my own teaching materials, also using articles and images, to stimulate conversation, vocabulary-building and grammar.

Learning a language provides insights into culture. I myself learn a lot from my students about their societies. I also enjoy discussing hobbies and aspects of modern life. My own interests include travel, tour-guiding, photography, art, history, reading and film.
