I have been a teacher for over 25 years. I specialize in Literacy skills but also teach Esol and EFL. I am very enthusiastic to help people learn and will set Smart goals (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, time-bound) negotiated with the learner. Sessions will be built around each individual learner and progress will be measured by relevant activities and outcomes eg online exercises or writing a formal letter. I am passionate about helping individuals find tools to learn and strategies to empower them.

Whilst working abroad I taught English to both groups and individuals. Learners were a range of ages and level. I have worked for several charities and Further Education institutions so have extensive teaching experience. I use a variety of techniques tailored to the individual or group concerned, such as experiential learning, presentations, grammar exercises, specific tasks related to the individual learning objectives eg exam questions, essays or letter writing. I believe that the best outcomes are achieved when a learner is involved in the learning process so my teaching strategy reflects this approach.
