English has always been a passion of mine and my qualifications and personal life revolves around utilising the language to it`s full potential. My time in Taiwan teaching was extremely rewarding and enabled me to use my natural teaching skills to a wide range of pupils from different ages.
When I start with a new student, I always assess the student to find out their strengths and weaknesses to enable us to focus on key areas of study. I am open to how the student wishes to learn and always put emphasis on individuality with their work.

Experience: I have 5 years of English Language teaching. I started in Taiwan where I taught a variety of levels, styles and curriculums. from kindergarten through Primary and to secondary school children. This involved much language and comprehension learning.
For a period of several months I was also involved in a university programme. This was fun and demanding, however I got to utilise my creative nature and use my advanced English knowledge to higher level learners.
During my time teaching English in Edinburgh, I have had the chance to learn about how lots of different nationalities learn and the difficulties that come with each mother tongue. I have taught people from all around the world and love to hear stories about their adventures.
Whether it`s pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar or just confidence that you are lacking, I can give you that boost to help you succeed.
