Hi, I’m Emily and I am from Manchester, United Kingdom. I have been teaching English since 2013 and have worked in England, Spain, Africa and online, teaching thousands of hours of English classes. I am a level 5 qualified English teacher and have taught students of all ages. I lived in Spain and have a BA(hons) degree in Spanish and history, so I know how it feels to learn a language and I believe this helps me to help YOU learn English.
About me: I love to meet and communicate with people from many different cultures. I love to travel and have travelled and lived in many countries including South East Asia, East and Southern Africa, Europe and United States. I love philosophy, psychology, reading, watching movies, spending time in nature, skiing in winter, studying and learning new things!
I love teaching English and know how important it is to feel confident and comfortable in a new language. My technique when teaching is to engage conversation as much as possible, whilst helping you to grow more confident in English. I am passionate about helping more people to learn English. A big portion of my lessons are conversation based as I believe communicating with a native speaker is the best way to improve your language level. I use a lot of non-traditional methods in my teaching course and real-life materials that will help you use your English in the real world.
I specialise in communication and conversation classes and I do this because I have found that the best (and most natural way) to improve your spoken English is by communicating in English! I focus on helping you to improve your fluency, pronunciation, vocabulary, listening skills and confidence in speaking English. My classes are for upper beginners/intermediate and advanced, for students of all ages.
Each lesson will be catered to YOUR needs and what you want to gain from the language class. Your objectives are important to me and if you don’t know exactly what they are yet…we can work them out together.
Want to build confidence, courage and improve your English, not just in the class but in the real world as well? Then send me a message and we can start this language learning experience together!
