My Approach to Private Tuition

My lesson plans are completely tailored to fit the individual student. I am experienced in many different teaching techniques, to suit any style of learning. Education should be a holistic process, not just a case of teaching to the exam, so I like to encourage students to look at the wider context of the subjects they are studying, and relate it to present-day issues. I love to pass on my passion for studying language and culture.

Fun fact
