My years of experience as an English teacher have proven that the most problematic barier language learners have is comfortably expressing themselves in conversations, be it casual or formal (e.g. Business English, ESP).
In addition, over the years I have acquired essential teaching experience working in corporate institutions and private locations, conducting one-on-one and group lessons for professionals in different industries, e.g. HR, sales and marketing, media, IT, medicine, etc.
In addition to my Cambridge CELTA and TEFL certificates, I also have a Master's degree in Psychology, and a high number of the modules were in the Industry and Work field; in addition my dissertation was on Child Development and Family Relationships.
All these factors allow me to build a rapport with students regardless of their age or background. My Cambridge CELTA training also ensures a methodological approach to conducting lessons.
My hobbies include reading, cooking, travelling, dancing, and "TV-series binge-watching".
