What I do

Face-to-face lessons

On-site language training tailored to specific needs in business and general English, or a combination of both.

Remote lessons

Phone or video lessons give a valuable opportunity to practise language and gain real-world experience.

Translation and proof-reading

Authentic written English in promotional materials creates a good first impression, builds confidence, and improves visibility. 

Professional experience

I have ten years’ experience of training in-company, in language schools and in higher education.

Before training to teach English to adults in 2010 (Cambridge Celta), I worked as a graphic designer, web developer and systems administrator for over fifteen years.
