About the classes

(What you can learn from this teacher)

I use a range of techniques drawn from a variety of methods/approaches in what has been labelled an ‘eclectic approach'. My aim is foremost to give the student confidence along with the proficiency to speak the language with ease. I also focus on expanding the vocabulary, improving enunciation and pronunciation and at the same time making the class fun and enjoyable !
