More about me.

I am a fun-loving, warm and friendly English tutor. I have taught English to children from Year 5 to Year 13 as well as foreign students as a second language. I worked for some years in Italy teaching English to Italian naval officers.

I am very passionate about the subject and have been teaching for many years. English is not one thing – it is a subject consisting of many strands – eg reading and writing, analysing and evaluating, and all the elements within that. I love all these aspects of English teaching and enjoy exploring the themes and characters within the pages of a book as much as writing a creative story but, more importantly, I love teaching these skills to children and seeing the expression on their faces when they produce work they can be proud of. I try to mix up the tasks to ensure students remain engaged and give them the opportunity to use all the skills based on one topic.
