My 6 years of tutoring, all over the world, to students of all ages, has taught me that learning can be fun, and that patience and clarity are crucial to a good learning experience. I also have a wide range of experience in learning languages, including German, French, Classical Greek, Latin, and two years of intensive Arabic (Modern Standard) in Amman, Jordan. As a result of my experience of being a language student, I am better able to empathise with my tutees. My speciality is in teaching English as a foreign language. In 2013 I qualified through the Cambridge University CELTA (English as a foreign language) programme. I speak with a `Received Pronunciation` accent.
