Engaging and Inspiring English Language Tutor
I think that learning is the natural inclination of most young people. This fundamental curiosity is wonderful to watch in action, and my strategy is always to excite and stimulate the student with my energy and passion. I adore the subjects I teach, especially English, and it is the careful application of this dedication which can really engage a student. I believe that learning should be fun, and the choice of texts and activities is crucial to inspiring a learner; if you get this right, serious learning can seem like a game and not chore.

I encourage students to be goal-oriented and maintain enthusiasm and motivation by establishing clear attainable milestones, which strike a balance between challenging them and also developing confidence. Most importantly, I think it is essential that the students enjoy their sessions and that the subject matter is made relevant and relatable. I consider myself to be very positive, patient and approachable and I strive to cultivate a safe environment in which students feel comfortable to express their difficulties and explore diverse methods to enhance learning and achieve their desired aims.
Language is an art and I am a lover of art, a poet and short story writer.
