Do you have a personal message for students?
My lessons are planned according to the level you are at and with the opportunity to reach your full potential. There is a degree of both formality and informality and involve grammar, conversation, reading and pronunciation. You will need to complete homework in order to consolidate your learning. I will plan to complement the work of your school teachers and to teach appropriate to the awarding body used at your school.
