Personal Message
I'm a friendly, encouraging and organised teacher of singing and EFL. I've had great results with past students and have successfully prepared singing students for drama school auditions and LAMDA exams as well as EFL students with Cambridge exams.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
Singing for children and adults covering basic technique, working on repertoire ranging from musical theatre to pop/rock and classical as well as preparing for auditions for drama school entry and other performing work.

English as a Foreign Language for any age and level. Preparation for Cambridge exams, as well as general English and conversation classes.

Tell me about your qualifications.
I trained at the prestigious Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts graduating with a BA(Hons).

120 hour TEFL Certificate with British Council Accredited company THE TEFL ACADEMY.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have seven years teaching experience with a 100% student pass rate for LAMDA musical theatre exams. I can play the piano with confidence or I am happy to work with backing tracks if the student prefers. In my lessons I work on basic technique, repertoire ranging from musical theatre to pop/rock and classical, preparation for drama school entry auditions, auditions for professional work or simply pure enjoyment. I regularly teach individual lessons and group sessions throughout London. As a performer myself I have had experience in theatre including 'The Sound of Music' in Kuala Lumpur and have sung at various corporate events at venues including The Ivy Club, London and The Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi. I've recently returned from Naples, Italy, where I was continuing my singing training further.

As an EFl teacher, I successfully completed the TEFL ACADEMY 120 certificate in August 2014 and went straight into a job in Naples, Italy from September 2014-May 2015. I taught children from as young as three years old, juniors, teenagers and adults. I prepared students for KET, PET and FCE exams. I also ran regular conversation classes which were very popular with the students. I currently teach online and in person in London to children and adults of varying levels.

Tell me about some of your current students.
I currently teach singing at Stagecoach Wimbledon on Saturday's which I greatly enjoy. I teach group classes with children ranging from five years old up to eighteen years old. I also teach some private students at the school and I'm preparing them for Bronze and Silver LAMDA Musical Theatre Examinations.

I currently teach English to people from Lithuania, Turkey, Poland, China, Morocco, France, Greece, Kuwait, Russia, Spain, South Korea and many more! I love meeting people from a variety of different cultures.

I also teach some students EFL online with students in the UK and in Switzerland. I have recently been preparing a student for her Advanced Cambridge exam and working with another on general conversation and pronunciation. I tutor an International five year old locally. We work on English and Maths in the current curriculum and we focus on reading in English as this is something that his parents struggle with.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I'm a committed, organised and enthusiastic tutor of singing and EFL. I always deliver my best for my students with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. I'm happy to work on whatever the student requires, but I also have a great deal of ideas and resources. Contact me now to book in a session!
