ūüďĆ Summary:
I am a highly qualified and experienced professional teacher from Kent in the south of England. I am also a Director of Studies, examiner, entrepreneur, award-winning mentor, researcher and, university ambassador. I teach freelance for schools and universities while running the education website Focus on Learning.

ūüďĆ My lessons:
Before our first lesson, I will send you a comprehensive Needs Analysis which will assess your specific situation and requirements. Each lesson will then be tailored to you so that you can get the most out of your lessons. Our lessons will include an outline lesson plan and use a wide range of materials including many that I have created myself. Homework is also an option but not an obligation. Together, we will review your progress at the end of each lesson, providing feedback and ensuring you are on track with your goals.

ūüďĆ My philosophy:
I believe you as a student are individual and important. I tailor my lessons to your specific needs; no two classes are the same. I believe language learning should focus on communication and have real world application. I don't believe there is any one 'best' approach to learning and so my lessons use a wide range of methodologies. My lessons cover all key skills (from speaking to writing) and this skills balance is always tailored to you. I also have a sense of humour and even add a few British jokes into my lessons. I believe learning should be useful as well as fun and enjoyable.

ūüďĆ My qualifications:
I hold three degrees: Bachelor's (BA) degree, Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in the UK. Also, I hold a Master's in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (MA TESOL), with British Council TEFL-Q Status. I passed this MA with a high Distinction grade. My dissertation scored a high distinction and has been nominated for the British Council's 20/21 Dissertation Award. I am also an experienced examiner who holds the Cambridge Certificate in Assessment (CCCA). I have an Enhanced Criminal Records Bureau disclosure (DBS) certificate for working with students under 18.

ūüďĆ My teaching experience:
I have over 11 years of teaching experience. I have taught children and adults across 10 different countries; in schools and universities. My teaching has consistently been assessed at 'Outstanding‚Äô or ‚ÄėDistinction‚Äô level. I have taught in Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Switzerland and the UK. As Director of Studies, I have managed teams of teachers internationally. I also mentor university students for which the University of Kent awarded me 2018 Mentor of the Year.

ūüďĆ My interests:
Personally, I love drinking tea (black, with milk, naturally!) combined with any of the following: business, economics, entrepreneurship, probability/risk theory, stocks, philosophy, religion, politics, travel, writing and good food. For fun, I play board games, read classic literature and non-fiction, and enjoy pub quizzes. I love travel and have travelled extensively around mainland Europe (taking plenty of photos).

Say hello! ūüėä
Any and all questions and enquiries welcome. Send me a message and let me know how I can help you. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your goals!
