I have been teaching English for 23 years to various age groups coming from various ethnic backgrounds and driven by various reasons: from primary kids to post-graduate students. I am very empathetic and student-oriented. I have taught General English, ESP (English for Specific Purposes), English Linguistics, GCSE, EFL, ESOL; I am also a Cambridge Speaking Examiner for YLE, KET, PET, FCE and CAE. Although for more than 15 years I was mainly and heavily involved in teaching various aspects of English at a university level, I never lost touch with the secondary teaching in a permanent effort to keep myself in the loop in terms of teaching methodology. Being motivated to achieve the highest possible standards in work and conduct, I have always placed the education of my students at the top of my list of priorities. I believe that proficiency cannot be achieved in the absence of a strong set of moral values accompanied by an equally strong subject knowledge.
My teaching philosophy relies on several pillars as follows: (i) identifying the needs of the students, (ii) designing a well-structured plan and (iii) constantly pushing their upper limits while closely monitoring their achievement so as, at the end, their knowledge and skills are solid and pertinent. When exploring the mechanism of the learning process, anyone who has been in this profession for a significant amount of time comes to realise the overwhelming importance of another factor besides setting high standards, promoting progress and demonstrating good subject knowledge, and this is the psychological one. One cannot adapt one's teaching to respond to the strengths and needs of one's students without taking into account their intellectual and emotional needs that are very frequently extremely different.

I have been a tutor for a few years teaching both face to face and online. To me, the most important thing as a tutor is to really listen to your student and let them explain what they may find challenging about a subject. Each student is different and therefore their lessons should also be unique. My students appreciate my friendly approach to learning and it is important that the students are in the driving seat of their lessons. I regularly ask my students what they would like to focus on and I base my lessons around where they can make the most progress.
I think it is important to have a tutor that is actively learning more about their subject of choice and that is why I am unique as a tutor. I am currently studying English literature with French and Spanish at The Universoty of Sheffield and this degree encompasses my strenghts and also what I enjoy. I am open to tutoring any ability level and I really look forward to meeting you!
