I'm Sarah, I'm a CELTA qualified teacher from Manchester, England. I've been teaching and tutoring children, teens and adults at all levels across the world for over 2 years. I love being a teacher because it allows me to meet new people and have interesting conversations. I am very interested in learning about new cultures and people, so I like to make my lessons fun and conversational. I believe that being friendly and positive allows my students to thrive, which has meant that they can speak more fluently and confidently with other native speakers or pass exams. I love travelling, food, films, reading, and music.
