Intensive English

I have been doing intensive lessons for a long time now. They are hard work for both Student and Teacher, but fun.

About Tutor

I am a confident and friendly tutor, I love teaching and mentoring, passing on my experience and knowledge to others, I enjoy helping people improve their knowledge of the English language.

I create the lesson to the needs of the student, so that each lesson is individual.

Experience

I have been an ESL teacher/tutor/mentor for over 12 years now. It has allowed me to travel to many countries, and meet some very interesting people. During that time I was also a Senior Lecturer at the Technical University of Moldova, teaching not only English but a number of other Computer/Social subjects.

I also teach IELTS and TOFEL Preparation courses, I have had very good results.

Teaching Approach

My approach is one of friendliness, I work with the students to create lessons that mean something to them. Each set of lessons is tailored to the student, I can work from books but prefer to create the lessons based on the requirements of each student.
