Expert teacher, CELTA, PhD: Exam preparation, business and academic English, grammar, conversation

I am a CELTA qualified teacher with over 12 years’ experience of teaching learners from all over the world – from Argentinian business people, to Senegalese schoolkids, to Chinese fashion students. I teach all levels and areas of English, but specialize in Cambridge exam preparation, Academic English and Business English.

I also hold a PhD in Linguistics. This means I have expert knowledge of the grammar of many languages, so I can understand my students’ difficulties and explain English grammar in a clear and simple way. I have studied several languages myself so I know what it is like to be a student!

I am a patient and friendly teacher. I love getting to know new people, understanding their challenges and finding fun and creative solutions to achieve their learning goals. Whether you want to improve your conversational skills or your academic writing style, I can provide a tailor-made program that will help you achieve your targets.
