I am a Cambridge English Delta qualified English teacher (Module 1 and 3) for second language learners. My work for the last 19 years has been designing personalised English learning programs which are goal-based. I have created programs for 50 students of various levels that focused on all language skills.
I have seen my students grow to communicate with confidence in daily life and at work. I have assisted in improving essay writing, presentation giving and improved TOEIC Speaking and Writing test scores.
Learning the Japanese language and living in another country gave me experience in being the student and understanding the joys and frustrations of learning another language. Currently, I am learning Spanish!

My rate for extended training is 12 lessons for $440 (1 free lesson).
