Tutor Information


I'm a CELTA qualified English Language tutor/teacher, with many years of online and classroom tutoring experience. I'm passionate about supporting others and overcoming barriers in communication. I have taught children and adults (ages 3+), online and overseas, across all levels (A1 - C2) of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). I have taught conversational English, English grammar, business English and academic English. I teach across all levels of the CEFR (including A1 - A2 (beginner), B1 - B2 (intermediate), and C1 - C2 (advanced)). My teaching style is friendly, patient and adaptable. Whatever your ability, I hope I get to meet and support you soon! Please send me a message if you would like to find out more. :) I offer a 15-minute free consultation session.
