Su di me

Why am I able to help you improve your English and meet your learning goals?

1. My university degree in English Language gives me a deep understanding of all the important aspects of the language and how it is learned.

2. I have held the Cambridge DELTA, the highest since 1997. This is the world's most well-respected HIGH-LEVEL qualification in Teaching English as a Foreign Language.

3. I have worked with students of all ages and levels and with people from all over the world.

4. As well as English teaching, I have worked in business, having worked in marketing and product development roles for major business information companies in London between 2002 and 2016. So I understand the working lives of businesspeople and professionals, and I know how to apply this knowledge to English classes.

5. I have successfully prepared students for KET, PET, FCE, CAE and CPE level Cambridge: English exams and have helped students get great scores in IELTS and TOEFL exams too.

6. I believe in really focused lessons in which we set MEASURABLE OBJECTIVES together. You will be able to perform communicative tasks quicker and with fewer mistakes. You won't only FEEL your English is getting better! You will be able to measure it and prove it!
