Communication, empathy and fun are three things that are most important to my teaching philosophy. For this reason, I began to specialise in exam classes for FCE, CAE, CPE & IELTS for both adults and teens. I also became a trained speaking examiner for all Cambridge exams, giving me insider knowledge of what the assessors expect from candidates during speaking examinations.
I have experience of teaching in-company classes, business orientated English, and conversation-based classes. I also have recent experience of teaching academic English courses for the University of Sheffield.
I have taught teens and adults from elementary to proficiency and love being able to tailor my classes to my students′ specific needs. This is why I think it is essential for the teacher to find out about the needs of the student at the start of every course. I provide study materials for my students and set out specific and achievable goals based on their level, needs and interests.
