I believe a safe and comfortable teaching environment where a learner blossoms under their own exploration of a language is most fruitful. Where Authentic and creative ways are used in order to suit the student as an individual, not a robot. Each learner evolves and improves with in their own way. It is a teacher's job to find that uniqueness in a student and teach in a way that will be most stimulating to the individual. Abit about me: I'm an artistic and social being, spending most of my free time playing an instrument , singing and socialising with friends. I love meeting new people that I can get to understand especially if they are from different backgrounds, countries and cultures. I love horse riding and spending time in the outdoors, jogging, hiking or taking long walks. The beach is my favourite place to be on a sunny day , swimming in the waves and tanning on the hot sand.

I have a lot of teaching experience one to one and with in a classroom environment. I can help you improve in your conversational English, sounding more natural and knowledgeable about vocab on topics you enjoy talking about. I will make sure our classes follow the pace of the student and include only authentic and creative activities to help you improve. I stay away from strict syllabus like structures as well as sticking to only text books. If you are someone who wants to learn Conversational or Business English in a way that requires your input as well as likes and dislikes then I am the teacher for you.

I Have taught Piano , guitar and vocals for a while now only recently moving on to online lessons. I have always felt a strong connection to music and teaching, combining the two brings me so much joy, If I can share the joy of helping someone connect with an instrument and learn how to play it then i have succeeded in achieving a passion of mine. I work well with all ages, i'm very approachable and I use different methods of teaching for each student depending on their style and pace.
