Description

Hello there, I´m a native English teacher with over five years of experience teaching students with a broad range of profiles and language levels. I´m currently looking to teach students online.

I´ve taught students from beginner to advanced level and have specialised in business English, offering English training for managers and executives aimed at helping them to present, negotiate and hold meetings in English.

Having also taught students requiring English for travel, studying abroad, and for personal interest in the language, I am also enthusiastic to teach students looking to learn English for both personal and professional reasons.

My teaching approach focuses on clearly identifying the individual needs of each student, establishing clear and achievable goals and offering advice and guidance on how to achieve these goals.

Additionally, I always ensure that lessons are as engaging as possible and tailored to each student´s individual interests, as enjoyment is key to maintaining motivation and making improvements!

I´ve travelled extensively in South America and have lived and worked in Barcelona, UK and Belgium and have an interest in the communications/International Development field having completed a Masters in Media Practice for Development and Social Change, with a focus film and documentary making.
