I grew up in London and have a First Class degree in English Literature, Linguistics and Creative Writing and currently doing an MA in Psychotherapy and Counselling at Goldsmiths (The University of London). I have over 6 years of experience teaching English and I have a CELTA teaching qualification, accredited by Cambridge University.
I am a friendly and supportive English Teacher who is looking for new students. I am the Director of my own online teaching company and also work as an IT Support Engineer at a global law firm in London. I spent 4 years working in PR and editorial at two book publishers and have excellent proofreading and editing skills. I have a clear British accent and love to share my passion for idioms!
I work with a variety of students including CEO's, engineers, web designers, software designers, PR and sales managers and PhD students. I specialise in interview preparation, IELTS, Business English, medical English, General English and proofreading.
Throughout the lesson I will give detailed feedback on how to improve pronunciation, grammar, fluency and help you to expand your vocabulary.
