As a native English speaker, I specialise in one to one tuition for students who are looking to improve their knowledge of English language and culture. Pronunciation and conversation skills are an important part of a lesson, however the individual needs of the student are the priority. Having worked in an business setting previously, I can offer Business English for those working over here long- and short-term in global companies. General English is covered too with an emphasis on sounding 'English' with the use of everyday popular phrases and vocabulary, together with improving reading and writing skills. Preparation for Life in the UK and other exams available. I am Trinity CertTesol qualified and have a good knowledge of other major European languages. Contact me for a free trial session.

How would you describe your teaching style?

I try to use lots of different ways of teaching in my lessons - sometimes we will simply talk with the student taking the lead, other times we will focus on some grammar points I have noticed that you need to work on. I use spoken and written English, sometimes using music, podcasts, youtube videos. Lessons are tailored to your needs - how to write an email, how to answer the phone or leave a message for someone. I can also help with gaining UK citizenship by looking at life in the UK and our culture. Much of my teaching style will depend on the learning style of the student.

What qualifications do you have?

I am TESOL qualified - I can teach English as a second language. I have studied Italian at university and have a reasonable knowledge of French, German and Spanish. I have worked in business for many years and have a good understanding of the various departments within a global company and the relevant business English needed.

Tell us about your experience...

I have taught many students on a one-to-one basis from many different nationalities for both business and everyday use, and also teach a summer school to groups of Spanish teenagers helping them to pass the Trinity GESE speaking exams.

What locations do you tutor in?

Areas local to Maidenhead including Marlow, High Wycombe, Slough, Windsor. I am happy to come to your workplace during or after working hours

What is your personal message to students?

I always tell my students not to worry too much about being perfect in English but to concentrate on making themselves understood and being able to understand the conversation and English around them. Improvement will come with practice.
