About me

I teach children in a fun and interactive way that helps them to relate, remember and build confidence.

I also enjoy teaching Adults. I know how tough it is to learn a new language, so I help others to push through any learning barriers with support and encouragement, building confidence and helping them to achieve their goal of a second language.

In my sessions, I use a variety of resources and strategies to build practical skills that you can use to listen, understand and speak English with confidence. I will encourage you to use your English as much as possible - both during lesson time and at home. I am friendly and approachable and always put my students at ease.

In my spare time, I enjoy walking with my dog, looking after my chickens, and spending time enjoying the beautiful Portuguese countryside with my family. I truly love helping others to learn and I look forward to helping you too.
