1200+ hours of experience teaching English in China, Austria, and Italy, to students aged 4-65 with varying levels of English. I am TEFL qualified and I'm currently studying for my CELT-P and CertTESOL certificates. I have a BA(hons) in Film and TV, and I love getting to know new people from different cultures.
What will a lesson with me look like?
Well, I believe in order to learn, you must have fun. That's why my lessons focus on learning through conversation, games and engaging activities. You will find yourself in a relaxed atmosphere, working at your own pace, with a focus on fluency. If you'd like to get started, go ahead and book a trial lesson! I look forward to meeting you.
