Hi, my name is Gemma and I'm a native English speaker with a love of languages.

I became a qualified TEFL teacher in 2008, with added qualifications in English grammar, business English and teaching one-to-one. I have experience with teaching children, gaining a Saxoncourt certificate for teaching English to young learners.

I have a BA (Hons) in Chinese Studies and lived in Taiwan for a year. I also have qualifications in French and am currently learning Danish. As an enthusiastic language learner I can appreciate any struggles or frustrations you may have with English and I think this puts me in a great position to be able to help you. I have six years of experience as a radio presenter so I have a lot of experience speaking conversationally and clearly.

Teaching English has been one of the most rewarding activities I've experienced and I'm looking forward to working with you. I'm here to help you get the most out of your English learning experience and hope to provide fun, stress-free lessons along the way.
