My teaching method is entirely dependent on the student's needs. I have taught a wide range of children from basic to advanced English with classes of up to 40 children. I love to make my lessons fun by utilising warm-up activities and fun games to strengthen my students English skills, promote concentration and to keep it interesting. My philosophy is to always allow my students to reach their full potential and to help them grow!
I am a recent BA Hons English Literature graduate (University of Leeds) from the UK. My aim is to be a secondary school English teacher as I love English - you can typically always find me with a book in hand, teaching and I have taught children from the ages of 3-18 years old. I'm also TEFL qualified as I have volunteered in Peru, Argentina and Thailand where I taught English to socially disadvantaged children. I've successfully taught classes as large as 40 children and I have also supported children with one-on-one lessons to supplement their learning.
