Personal Information:
I have worked for over 30 years in English language training and have gained experience in multiple language learning centres both in the UK and in Europe, including 11 years in my own language institute. I have also worked as a 1-2-1 tutor for over 15 years.

During my career, I have taught a wide range of ages including young learners and adults, as well as learners in challenging surroundings. The focus of these learners was to pass levels A1 to C2 on the CEFR framework, but I have also trained to teach IELTS and ESP . I have developed patience, resilience and a strong understanding on how to develop learner autonomy.

I am an approachable and dedicated teacher who has a strong empathy with students. My aim is to build confidence and skills through my teaching so that learners progress and reach the targets they have set. My Dip.TESOL and CELTA qualifications have cemented my professional status as an English language teacher and I am confident about delivering top quality service.

I have prepared learners for most EFL examining bodies and have an excellent results record. I have also delivered lessons to KS1 to GCSE English language students and have had the opportunity to work as an examiner for City & Guilds Functional English Exams - writing papers - and as an oral examiner for EFL examining bodies. Recently, I have also written materials for E1 to level 1 learners for an Offender learning programme.

Apart from my English Language qualifications, I also speak fluent Greek and am able to teach beginners to intermediate level. I lived overseas for a number of years and hold a certification of my knowledge of Greek.

Due to the Coronavirus, I am working online using Zoom at present. When normal face-to-face contact is resumed, I can travel up to five miles. If I travel further, I will need to factor in travel costs and time.
