Heidi O

Hello. My name is Heidi. I am a teacher of English to international persons with English as a second language (over 6 years experience). I offer tailored private English lessons one-to-one. I am friendly, patient, reliable, organised, adaptable, and approachable. I really enjoy teaching English and I think it is a very exciting and rewarding experience. I enjoy making it interesting and rewarding for the student as well, by including fun activities during the lessons such as playing games, cooking or listening to videos.
I live in the beautiful countryside with my husband and 3 children.
Along with tailored lessons, we also offer a variety of activities to enjoy including cycling, baking, and shopping.
We look forward to welcoming you into our home.
