1:1 classes are given in my own classroom in the centre of Selby, which is easily accessible by car, bus or train from Leeds, York, Doncaster, and surrounding towns.
I have been teaching ESOL since 1999. I have helped children, teenagers, and adults from Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Africa, China, and South America. I have prepared students for the GCSE O-level exams in the UK, the Polish Matura exam, the IELTS and TOEFL exams, the Cambridge KET and FCE. I specialise in academic writing skills, but have also taught conversational English and Skills for Life.I am patient, flexible, mature, and empathetic. Having lived and worked abroad myself, I understand how difficult learning a new language can be.Aside from ESOL, I am also a writer and published author of short stories.
I lived and worked in Poland between 1999 and 2004, teaching academic and general English to young learners, teenagers, and adults, including 3 years teaching the Callan Method. I also spent a year working at a local teacher training college.On my return to the UK, I began offering private lessons. I spent 2 years teaching Skills for Life at Entry 2 level at the local college. I have also worked extensively in Selby and surrounding towns and cities teaching ESOL to refugees from Syria, Iraq and North Africa. I currently teach reading and writing skills to Arabic learners on behalf of North Yorkshire County Council, as well as privately teaching IELTS online to a Romanian student, conversational business management online to a Polish student, GCSE English to a 12-year-old Romanian student, and general English to Czech and Polish people.
