I am a qualified TEFL teacher and have achieved both Cert ED and QTLS. I'm currently working towards the International Phonetics Association's Certificate of Proficiency in the Phonetics of English. I work with colleges, charities, businesses and individual students. My areas of special interest are Business English and pronunciation and I aim to help my students communicate as clearly as possible. I feel that teaching English is a vital service to a huge number of people who have businesses, or who just want to improve their English. More and more people inside and outside the EU are doing business, visiting or living in the UK and require a solid base of English, from beginners to advanced learners. Cornwall is a fast growing export market, attracting foreign companies and businesses that are eager to improve their links with local industries and extend their Business English. In addition, one of the most popular universities in England is based in Falmouth where academic English is becoming increasingly popular with international students studying in Cornwall. Whatever a student's reason for learning English, it's my philosophy that lessons should be learner-led. An initial meeting to discuss student needs and preferences will lead to a set of lessons designed precisely to their requirements. Our head office is in beautiful Cornwall and our satellite teachers are in each region of the UK, while our overseas teachers cover EU and non EU countries. Lessons can take place in your own home, place of work, or suitable facilities can be hired for larger groups.
