I have over 30 years of teaching experience both in the classroom and 1-to-1 tuition with a reputation for delivery. I cover English, Maths, German and Dutch and teach foreign students academic English online to IELTS level 7.0 to prepare them for their University study in the UK.
My 1-to-1 students are both adults and young people from the age of 5 onwards. I have extensive experience with students suffering from ADHD and Dyslexia needing special support and am committed to ensuring students gain the knowledge they need.
I have a very hands-on approach in teaching and believe that learning should be enjoyable, not a task, and I motivate my students to use their newfound skills by building their confidence. I tailor my lessons to my student's needs and requirements to ensure that fast progress is made for the purpose of learning and that my lessons are fun and easy to understand.
