Madhvi Padia Tutor Profile
Hi there! My name is Madhvi but you can call me Maddy for short. I'm from Nairobi, Kenya in the Eastern part of Africa. I have a bachelor's degree in Environmental Science and English is our offical language here and my native language! I've got experience in teaching languages on a private one on one basis to young learners enrolled in the British education system and now a working professional able to teach English of all levels.
Teaching and Professional career
I've worked in the corporate sector for the most part of 7 years and would really love to share my knowledge and experience through business english. There are many skills that I never had when I started out and had to learn on the go! These were things like how to network, email etiquette, CV & cover letter preparation, personal branding etc. I just winged it! Eventually, I invested in myself and did a course in Business etiquette and have become TEFL certified as well! Combining the two means I can help you with refining your professionalism and most importantly, give you confidence on speaking and presenting yourself in the best way possible.
Hobbies & Interests
I'm an avid reader, currently enrolled in Indian classical singing, love sport and love to play settlers of Catan! I'm also interested in Japanese culture, I regularly attend events at our local Japanese embassy to learn more about what interesting things are going on and to learn more about Japanese people! When talking to me, I hope I'll be able to share some insights on Africa and equally learn more about Japan and other parts of Asia
- My lessons will have a fun, relaxed, yet professional approach. You will be encouraged to practise your English through conversation and I'll gently correct you as we go along.
- I'm quite a good listener and have a somewhat structured style. I'll be able to identify areas we need to improve on whether it is pronunciation, grammar, speaking or listening.
- I provide support material that you can use for reference even after you're done with lessons in the form of links/articles and videos that will help.
- Most importantly, the aim of each lesson is to encourage you and give you the confidence to speak your way into achieving all your personal and professional goals!
