Learn native British English the fun and easy way!

Hello! 👋 I'm Madelyn. I live in Wales, in the UK. I am a native British English speaker with a neutral accent.
I enjoy long-distance running (I completed my first marathon in 2019!), taking walks on the beach, swimming in the sea and spending time with friends and family over cups of tea. I enjoy cooking healthy meals and snacks and I dabble in painting with watercolours 🎨
I'm a naturally very positive and enthusiastic person and I always strive to look for the best in any situation.

I'm aware that we all absorb new things in different ways and at different speeds so if we need to change tack during a class, that's just fine!
There's no need to be nervous.
We're on the same team; I am here to help you get better 😊

I am an experienced public speaker with lots of tips to help you be the best version of yourself when giving presentations or demonstrations (getting your nerves under control, how to make the best use of notes, dealing with interruptions, etc.).
I've been involved in one-to-one teaching for over 10 years and I'm also enrolled in a public speaking school which helps to keep me up-to-date with the latest methods of teaching and speaking. I attend these public speaking classes every week and they help me stay fresh and practiced. Every 5 years I attend an intense week-long refresher class.
I've taught a varied range of students from all over the world; I find it very fulfilling work and I really love to listen and get to know my students.

My teaching style is very interactive; I make sure to involve you in our discussion right away - this is really important as this is the secret to learning a language: practice! 🤓

I feel culture is also very important; understanding the target languages' history and background is a massive stepping stone to understanding the language itself. Incorporating different facets of British-English culture is an accessible way to help you see the importance of learning the English language and learning to speak it like a native!
English idioms and phrases are a fascinating way to gain an insight into the language and I love looking into their origins and history. Comparing the differences between American English and British English is also something that is fun and useful to many students and is a subject I love to discuss.

So let's get going - book a lesson and we can start your journey together today! 😎
