About me

I am an upbeat, engaging language teacher, with a degree in French and Italian from Durham University. Having lived overseas and learnt languages myself, it is a pleasure to teach them to others. I can anticipate and identify with the many hurdles which a learner of languages has to overcome, offering clear and simple explanations to help progress.

I am an upbeat, engaging language teacher, with a degree in French and Italian from Durham University. Having lived overseas and learnt languages myself, it is a pleasure to teach them to others. I can anticipate and identify with the many hurdles which a learner of languages has to overcome, offering clear and simple explanations to help progress.


Since 2012, I have been a Cambridge CELTA qualified teacher of English as a foreign language, and have also taught French and Italian over the past 7 years, both one-on-one and in larger classes.


I am happy to help with university applications and essay technique.


Good communication is essential to all aspects of life. Learning a foreign language enables you to expand your mind as well as better understand others. It allows you to travel more freely and with more interest, forming strong bonds with friends wherever you go in the world.

About my sessions

My first online lesson will establish the level my student already has in their chosen language through a series of general questions. This gentle warm up activity will help us get to know each another, whilst I establish which area my student would most benefit from working on, and whether they are preparing for any exams which require practice of specific topics.

My first online lesson will establish the level my student already has in their chosen language through a series of general questions. This gentle warm up activity will help us get to know each another, whilst I establish which area my student would most benefit from working on, and whether they are preparing for any exams which require practice of specific topics.


It is most beneficial to speak in the foreign language throughout, to ensure maximum practice, but if my student is struggling to express themself, I am happy to revert to English where necessary. Each time we revert to English, I will also cover how they could have expressed their question or response in the foreign language.


We will set goals to achieve, with a standard plan spanning over a series of online classes (you can let me know how many classes you would like to begin with), in which we will cover new aspects of the language and revise/recap on everything that has previously been taught. A key aspect of languages is practice. It is impossible to learn a language without repetition and extensive practice. Therefore, I prefer to focus on specific areas of language to ensure they are well-understood and absorbed before moving on.
