I want my students to get the very best out of my lessons!

Here’s what I think about myself as a teacher.

➔ I am happy, calm, friendly, patient, understanding and student focused when teaching English.
➔ I understand that everyone is different and learns in their own way.
➔ I always actively listen to the needs of my students.
➔ I am able to adapt my teaching style to fit my student's needs.
➔ I use active listening skills to correct my students if they make a mistake.
➔ I am not afraid to challenge my students in my classes as this regularly happens in real life.
➔ I have taught myself to speak a little slower on Verbling, however, I won’t be offended if you tell me to speed up.

My Lesson Cancellation Policy

1 - Students must be 16 or older to learn with me independently. However, if the young person is under 16 they must be supervised by an adult. Safeguarding is important!

2 - I will wait for 10 minutes after the lesson start time. If no communication has been made within the 10 minute time period to myself then the lesson will be cancelled. All teaching credits will then be transferred to the teacher.

3 - If you do not attend our lesson with less than 24 hours notice I will not be able to use this time slot for another lesson. Therefore any unattended lessons without at least 24 hours notice will be non-refundable.

4 - Lessons end 5 minutes early if I have another class directly afterwards.
