Introduction:

I have taught English in three countries to all ages and all levels since 2002.

I am a T.E.F.L. certified English teacher from England and I have taught in three countries. I have been teaching since 2002 and I can teach teenagers, adults, IELTS, TOEFL,TOEIC, and general conversation to all ages.
During my teaching career, I have been offered the role of Head Teacher and I taught fourteen students privately for two years. Also, I have collected a lot of my own material and I can use this material to supplement a lesson or teach it by itself, if needed. I have always looked for new and creative ways to improve lessons and I continue to have the same desire in finding interesting ways of teaching English.
I am culturally sensitive and focus on what students want to learn or talk about without being opinionated or intrusive. I love my job and I am competent teaching any age and any level.
