Annette A

I am a teacher of English who has been teaching in local schools and one-to-one in my home for several years. I have lived in Japan and Africa and have taught English as a Foreign Language to students of many different nationalities, ages and professions over the years. I prepare a personalised intensive English course for each student, adapted to the specific skills and language areas they wish to focus on. Students may wish to improve their speaking and listening skills, for instance, or their pronunciation, writing or grammar, or some other area.
