I am an English teacher with 9 years of experience teaching all levels and all ages.

I always try to make my classes interesting, friendly and communicative. It is really important to speak as much as possible when you want to learn another language and I think it is the best way to practice and develop.

I studied English and Drama at university and I also have a TEFL teaching certificate. I have been lucky enough to live and teach in different countries: the UK, Latvia, Japan, Tanzania and Spain.

I have taught Japanese students before as I lived in Nagoya and taught at a university there. As well as this I also taught Japanese students on the Peace Boat as we travelled around the world.

I have experience teaching children from age 3 years old to adults. I have taught from Beginner level students to Proficiency level. I have also delivered exam preparation classes for Cambridge Exams including PET, FCE, CAE, CPE and IELTS.
