I have experience teaching every level and currently teach adults face to face in Cambridge. I quickly identify problem areas and work on them using a method that works well with each student-whether on the business premises or in the student's home. Together, we practise pronunciation techniques; fluency; increasing vocabulary; writing; and many more skills - using methods including speaking and listening.
Over the years, I have worked with international students, corporate clients, scientists, business entrepreneurs, and translators to enhance their communication skills regarding clarity, intelligibility, confidence, accuracy, and vocabulary range. I encourage the student to speak as much as possible by using a variety of techniques to provide material to talk about, using everyday vocabulary.

About Me

I'm a native English speaker from Cheshire in England.
I now live in Cambridge, which is a cosmopolitan city, bustling with life and fun. I find it extremely rewarding to be able to help students who are prepared to improve their communication skills in order to improve their lives.

In my free time, I love to be outdoors, whatever the weather: exploring, noticing the changes in nature, and walking with friends and family. I really enjoy cooking (I find it therapeutic), and it’s even more enjoyable with friends or family.
Reading is a great pleasure of mine, and, just as much, I like to hear about what other people are reading. Holidaying in different countries is fabulous, where I like to try the local and popular foods.

Conversational English: Conversation Practice and Improvement
I teach conversational English. The initial purpose of my lessons is to get my students to practice speaking English. "Practice makes perfect", it's true, but during our practice sessions, we will soon discover our weak spots and we will have to address them. The real purpose is not just practice but IMPROVEMENT. So we will dedicate a portion of our sessions together to fixing pronunciation and learning the proper way to use tenses and grammar in everyday speech. By the end of this course, you should be able to speak English fluently and confidently.

Dutch conversation lesson for children, teenagers and adults
My way of teaching is mostly fun. Why?! It can be quite scary to learn another language, let alone to speak it... I can give you the feeling of security, so that you dare to speak, in this case the Dutch language. We will focus on listening, pronunciation and of course talk talk talk. During all this I also explain the necessary grammar, of course fully adapted to your level. Because however you look at it, grammar is also necessary, especially as a basis!

If you're open to that, I'll also give you homework, which will challenge you more ;) Are you ready for this challenge?! I look forward to seeing you in my class :)
