I consistently bring out the very best in my students by a combination of experience, pedagogical knowledge and an individually tailored approach. Many times I have achieved where other tutors have failed to convey the necessary skills. So many times I have heard students say delightedly, ‘Yes, now I understand! It’s so clear and easy.’ This is because I am a natural teacher, with an in depth knowledge of my topic, who is able to adapt my own teaching approachs and materials to the natural learning styles of my students, rather than expecting them to adapt to me. One size does not fit all in teaching.
I was an English teacher for 12 years in the Uk before teaching English as a second language to business and engineering students at a technology college in the UAE. Since leaving the UAE in January 2019, I have most recently worked as a private ESL tutor to business people in Moscow. I have published courses on Academic Reading and Writing, Critical Thinking, English for Engineering, English Spoken Communication, English for Business, written grammar textbooks, and several How-to guides aimed at foundation and under graduate students.
