Tell me about some of your current students.
One of my current LAMDA students is a 13 year old girl I have worked with for the last two years. I have taught her LAMDA and prepared her for Grades 4 and 5. She was a very shy 11 year old when I met her, but she has blossomed through these lessons, particularly in her social confidence, as I have worked with her on her voice, posture, speech, eye contact and confidence in speaking in public.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I am a friendly, patient and kind teacher. I always try to make my lessons fun and not feel too much like work! I'm interested in getting my students to be interested independently in their subjects by reading around their classroom work, so that they want to continue learning in their spare time!
