Hi, I am passionate about teaching English. I have experience teaching both face to face and in online settings where I teach in 1-1 and group classes. I spent some years in Japan where I taught English in Elementary Schools, companies and in private setting. My teaching style is to encourage conversation in a calm, relaxed environment, building confidence and skills using appropriate learning materials and learning tasks. I can also help you with your written English and prepare for international English tests such as TEOIC and IELTS. My online students describe me as 'kind, patient and attentive'. I want to make Engish learning as relaxed as possible. I have a degree in Agricultural Science and love talking about science and technology. I also enjoy Travel, cooking, crafts and getting outside and walking in our great NZ environment.
