I believe that each student has the right to be respected and assisted on an individual basis. I build confidence in my students, enabling them to feel more empowered and excited about their education. My methods of teaching varies to suit the needs of the student, and I have worked successfully with children with various learning difficulties or health issues, making learning fun and interesting for all those I work with. My earlier background is in speech and drama, acting, film and television. I taught and tutored refugees and immigrants, both children and adults, at various levels of English language learning. I have a passion for bringing out the potential in each individual student, and helping that potential to be realised in a real and meaningful way. I believe every person deserves to have faith in themselves and their ability to succeed.
