Qualified native English teacher in Cambridge. Personalised teaching method to ensure progress.
Tailored practice and further development * speak with confidence * improve your writing * read confidently * improve your listening skills Grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation training, and accent reduction. Make yourself understood with confidence: Pronunciation, elocution, accuracy, vocabulary development, grammar. Writing accurately: Planning, organisation, development. Listening: Grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation. Bespoke lesson-plans, whether for business purposes or for more fluent speaking practice. I have experience teaching every level and currently teach adults face to face in Cambridge. I quickly identify problem areas and work on them using a method that works well with each student-whether on the business premises or in the student's home. Together, we practise pronunciation techniques; fluency; increasing vocabulary; writing; and many more skills - using methods including speaking and listening.
Over the years, I have worked with international students, corporate clients, scientists, business entrepreneurs, and translators to enhance their communication skills regarding clarity, intelligibility, confidence, accuracy, and vocabulary range. I encourage the student to speak as much as possible by using a variety of techniques to provide material to talk about, using everyday vocabulary.

I am extremely patient and have experience teaching learners from all over the world and therefore understand particular pronunciation difficulties. I provide a lot of help with common problems encountered, using, for example: tenses, phrasal verbs, and word order in sentences.

I am a native English speaker with a clear voice and am qualified through Trinity College London in TESOL. I also have an NVQ III in Business and Administration. Contacts are available for nearby, friendly, professional host families at reasonable prices. Student's comment-Linde: "What’s even better is that she takes my incorrect sentences as examples as well, which makes it easier to apply the grammar to my everyday life."

About Me

I'm a native English speaker from Cheshire in England.
I now live in Cambridge, which is a cosmopolitan city, bustling with life and fun. I find it extremely rewarding to be able to help students who are prepared to improve their communication skills in order to improve their lives.

In my free time, I love to be outdoors, whatever the weather: exploring, noticing the changes in nature, and walking with friends and family. I really enjoy cooking (I find it therapeutic), and it’s even more enjoyable with friends or family.
Reading is a great pleasure of mine, and, just as much, I like to hear about what other people are reading. Holidaying in different countries is fabulous, where I like to try the local and popular foods.

The possibilities are endless for focusing on Public Speaking, Intonation and Voice Projection as well. This may be stimulated by interesting audios, short readers or videos. If there are topics you have in mind, we can additionally explore and incorporate this into your lessons. If you need to start speaking English, this class is for you!
