Passionate teacher, tutor and facilitator with 21 years experience in English, Drama and Oral Communications - let me guide, help and inspire you to achieve your goals.

I LOVE teaching young people, teenagers and adults - anyone who wants to learn. My teaching style is firm but open and friendly. I LISTEN first, we share thoughts and ideas and then I teach you what you need to know. Expect to be challenged and to think - solve problems and to discover answers and outcomes as we journey together.
