I am into my 17th year of teaching English on a professional level and I love it. It´s my passion and this rubs off onto my students with a large percentage of them passing their exams, which include PET, FCE, CAE, CPE and IELTS.
I believe that my students have become better language users due to my modern, communicative teaching methods. They tell me that my lessons are enjoyable because I use lots of short stories, games, videos as well as lots of Speaking and Listening activities.

My personal belief is that every person is unique and that is what I have been teaching my pupils. In this day and age people should be encouraged to help each other, be supportive, compassionate and follow their dreams. I have been blessed with some incredible students who have acknowledged the fact that I have made a big difference in their life. This has inspired me to follow my vocation- teaching not only English but also Life Skills as well as being a role model.
