In my vast teaching experience, I helped students to achieve their individual specific goals from passing English language exams, to applying to a job, getting a promotion or simply building their confidence in using English as a second language.
When I teach I always use the communicative method, which means you get a lot of practice and I listen and correct where necessary. If you'd like, I can focus on a particular aspect of the language like, vocabulary expansion, grammar, pronunciation etc.
I’ve taught English as a Second Language in Australia, Italy, Turkey and England, for over 12 years. I’ve mostly taught European and Asian business executives and have helped many students pass their IELTS exam.
For 11 years, I also worked as a Business Development Manager in various charities and I eventually became the Chief Executive of Love Is All We Need, a charity that supports AIDS orphans in South Africa. After 18 months in this position, I chose to go back to teaching because I find it more motivating, and I’m now able to use my business experience in my teaching.
My main aim is to give you the confidence to express yourself freely in English. I will create my lessons to suit your individual needs and you can always request to practise specific language areas. Whatever the goal of the lesson is, I will aim to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
When I’m not teaching, I run a part-time global health business, manage my investment properties, watch films that make me laugh and enjoy walking in nature, as often as I can.
Claudia combines strong communication skills with substantial experience in creating a vibrant learning atmosphere in which students can thrive. She is also confident, articulate, dynamic and focused.
