Firstly, in the free one hour lesson, I listen carefully to your learning goals and at the same time assess your level. I adapt my lessons to fully meet your learning needs. I feel that it is vital that lessons are energetic, fun and interactive. I strive to maintain your enthusiasm and commitment to your learning goals. I provide interesting and varied teaching materials. At no extra cost, l offer voice recordings to help you with your English pronunciation and can also give and mark homework as well as providing regular feedback so that you can review material at your leisure.
