Hi, I'm Simon from Cambridge, England. I have been a qualified teacher for more than thirty years. I have a vast experience. For the last four years I have been teaching English as a foreign language in Italy. I understand the difficulties of language learning as I am still trying to get to grips with Italian.
My teaching style is relaxed but effective and rigorous. It is based around the communicative or direct method of speaking and listening with attention to grammar where necessary.
I am up to date with modern English. I can tell you what "rammed" "long" "wicked" mean to young english people. English as it spoken by ordinary people in real situations is often very different from the English of text books.
I will adapt my lessons to suit your particular needs whether it is for an IELTS exam or one of the Cambridge exams or simply for pleasure.
My lessons will be fun and educational.
If you have any questions, just ask. I look forward to meeting you.
