Hi Students...

About Me - 

I'm a CELTA qualified teacher of English and have been teaching for just over four years. I was previously based in Singapore, working for a Japanese language school, but have now relocated to New York, USA where I work for an international language school teaching young adults English as a second lesson. The students are of varied age and my classes are usually upper intermediate or advanced level. 

Having now been based in New York for just over two years, I am much more aware of the differences between British and American Englishes and can aim my lessons at either language form, dependent upon the needs of the student.

Teaching History - 

Before moving to Singapore, I worked in London in a blue chip food retail organisation and gained much valuable commercial experience, which has assisted my teaching of Business English meaning that I am fully able to assist all business English needs, at any channel or profession. My main teaching comes from the teaching of Everyday English, at intermediate through to advanced levels.

Teaching Style - 

I am a very encouraging teacher and like to identify the successes, as well as the improvement areas. You will find me to be a good listener and someone who is quickly able to identify problems and tailor a lesson plan, at a very individual level.

I'm very much interested in language and culture and how these important aspects of life are distinctly entwined. I really enjoy learning new things and hear new information. Oh, and I'm a huge music fan - many types, but indie and electronic, in particular. 

So, why me as your teacher? Well, I'm very focussed upon the student and understand that your investment of time and payment is vitally important to you. I can quickly identify specific needs and deliver suitable plans to solve problems, at all levels speaking, listening, writing and reading. 

I look forward to meeting you!

    The consonant sounds of /l/ and /r/ can be especially difficult for some to produce accurately. This lesson will help you to identify the issues and how to address them.

    Let's be honest, we make mistakes that we sometimes don't know about when learning English. Let's have some free-talk with a view to highlighting these errors and then do something to correct them!
