Hi! I'm a native British English, TEFL certified teacher and I specialize in IELTS (Academic + General), KS2 SATS English Preparation, Business English, Interview Preparation, CV & Document Editing and General Conversation Practice. Before teaching English, I worked in the finance industry in London. I’ve been teaching English for over 6 years (online & classroom) to professionals and students of all ages and backgrounds (from elementary kids and university students to teaching Business English to professional individuals) and I really, really enjoy it! I'm really flexible and a personable teacher and I strongly believe in making students feel relaxed (I know what it’s like to try and lean a new language!) I adapt my lessons so that you learn at your own pace as I think this is really important and I always try and make them as fun as possible!
Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from you......
