About Me

Name

Jennifer Rogers

Nationality

British

Languages

I love encouraging my students with stories about my own language wins and fails. As an adult learner it’s been hard to push myself out of my comfort zone and practise a second language. So I promise to be a sympathetic and patient ear for you. Just signing up to an Intrepid English class is a huge committed step to your English language learning. Well done you!

My strongest second language is Mandarin. I usually tell people I speak Mandarin like a cave person – put it this way, if I was your tour guide in China you wouldn’t go hungry or get lost. More or less…!
I’m trying to practise my rusty French at the moment and teach it to my baby son, he doesn’t mind if I don’t conjugate my verbs correctly as long as I can sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in tune.

Teaching Experience

Role

English Language Teacher

Experience

I have lots of experience to pass onto you. I have worked with kindergarten through to mature adult learners. I’ve taught General English, Business English and IELTS English. I once had a student who wanted to practise conversation to have with his girlfriend’s English speaking family.

I am an enthusiastic British Trinity TESOL certified teacher, I have 12 years of experience working in ESL and education.

I have travelled and taught abroad, spending the majority of my working time in Asia – in China and Taiwan, where I found my true passion for the teaching profession.

Specialisms

I am adaptable to learner needs so if there is something specific you would like to work on let me know and we can find some materials tailored to you.

Background Information

So a little more about me. I love being outside and active, combining those two things with my family would be my ideal day. Oh and they’d have to be food involved too! I’m a huge foodie. I joke that if I wasn’t a Teacher I’d be a food critic.

I moved in to a new home a few years ago so I love spending freetime on home and garden projects.

I currently reside in the South of London.
