I have over 30 years experience of teaching people of all ages from beginners to advanced. I have a wide range of materials to support people looking for lessons from speaking and listening to grammar and pronunciation. The lessons I offer are supportive and fun as well as being professional and effective. I provide regular reports for children and monitoring sessions for adults. I have experience of teaching children from 5 years of age to adults, people of all levels from A0 - C2, all examination preparation and specialized pronunciation work.
How would you describe your teaching style?
I like to complete a learner needs analysis during the first lesson and from this I would design a course that incorporates a suitable teaching style. I find that many students require supportive, encouraging atmosphere which enables them to experiment and develop their language skills in a confident manner. I use a lot of communicative teaching as well as methods such as total physical response, task based work and story telling for children. For adults I find the unplugged and lexical methods work well.
What qualifications do you have?
Postgraduate Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (Trinity)

Hello and I hope your language learning journey has been a positive one so far. I can help you develop your skills in all areas of reading, writing, speaking and listening as well as improving pronunciation issues. After a 20 minute interview I will be able to design a problem that offers value for money through quality lessons. I look forward to meeting you.
