About Me

Let me introduce myself briefly. I am a citizen of USA, Switzerland and Peru. I speak five languages fluently. I have the proficiency certificate in English and German. I have previously studied my BA and MA in International Relations and Political Science in Paris, France and London, UK as I wanted to be a diplomat at first. In my early adolescence I grew up in Switzerland and in my early teens my parents decided to venture to Singapore where I graduated in the German School Singapore.

I slipped into the educational world pretty much by accident 5 years ago. Before, my career was in the business world in Singapore. I started as a tutor pretty much by chance and then followed up with a fast track teaching course in the most widely recognized teachers school in Zurich (PH) Switzerland. There I was trained as a primary teacher with the latest cutting edge tools in Pedagogy. Nevertheless I decided to focus on private teaching for the most prestigious international school in Zurich (Zurich International School) and other local Swiss Schools.

My overall aim is to nurture children from any age and background in almost every subject. What I am passionate the most is to be able to have a wide variety of kids who give me their trust to learn at their own pace with their wants and needs. It is essential to me that the child comes first. My overall teaching methods evolve around identifying and promoting the strengths of the childs personality and not focus on the deficits using my intuition and wide experience and background. In my experience, the most important outcome of any teaching assignment is for the child to create his or her own new learning strategies.

Welcome! I specialize in aiding non-native English speaking professionals with accent reduction. I can help you learn either the American or British English accent. I'm also able to aid a client in public speaking skills if desired. I am a native American English speaker (born and raised in the USA), and I am a professional private voice instructor.

ENGLISH LESSONS, all levels (beginner to university), 5 years teaching experience
I am a qualified teacher from England, I have a BA and MA in Linguistics (English). I am currently making research on the best methods for teaching a second language (such as English) to adults and children. I have been teaching children and adults for 5 years, from beginner to university level. The best way to improve in a new language is to be taught by a qualified English speaker. :-) I adapt my lessons to the level and needs of the student. We can work on grammar, reading, speaking and listening. I usually use the news in English to encourage the student to express themselves, correct pronunciation while reading and it is an excellent way for the student to acquire new expressions/vocabulary. I also give exercises based on grammar and make sure to apply what we have learned in real life context. If you wish, we can also work on specific topics such as business. I am also qualified for the IELTS/TOEFL, A-LEVELS or the correction of written work. I can deliver the lessons online if required. Don't hesitate to contact me for further information. I'm looking forward to meeting you. :-)

Quick English Speaking, Reading & Confidence Building
Hi, I specialized in English teaching for more than 10 years & have been training many internationals in my 7 full years of being in educational institutes & NGOs. I had the priviledge to teach English in Bangkok, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Portugal and Poland I have run more than 70 education workshops/training. I have both TESOL & TEFL teaching certificate. My lessons starts with a casual conversation to get a feeling of my students level. It will then be a series of topic of conversations that I will go through. My aim is to make my students as casual and normal as I can so it's a natural conversation no matter what level my students at. This is to build their comfortability to make mistakes and be OK with it, so they can learn faster. Grammar and vocabulary will come during and after I sense a confidence in my students. My techniques are adopted from years of working in international education organisations with underprivileged and illiterate groups to fast track their ability to master and converse in English. So let me know if you would like to learn with me, you can even give it a try with half the price for the first class :)
