My name is Elen and I am from Wales in Great Britain. I am a DELTA qualified English Language teacher with 19 years experience working for the British Council in Italy and Egypt and International House in Spain and Portugal. I have also worked in England, teaching mixed nationality groups, with students from Asia, Europe, the middle east and south America.
I have worked as a Cambridge examiner and am very familiar with the format and requirements of the FCE, CAE and CPE exams. I am a thorough teacher with a genuine interest in the idiosyncrasies of English and love taking students' level beyond formulaic coursebook learning. Saying that, I am also a grammar enthusiast! I consider each part of a language (reading, writing, speaking, listening, grammar and vocabulary) as beneficial in genuinely improving a student's level but am also happy to adapt and concentrate on a particular area if and when it is needed or wanted.
