So, about me? I was born in Derby City, was brought up in Nottinghamshire, worked briefly in Sheffield, went to university in Salford, worked in London for a while, worked in Bangalore for a while and decided to settle in Manchester 14 years ago. I love it. Apart from that, I read as much as possible, usually about the intricacies of the English language and usually on the way to the gym. I enjoy a coffee break in between teaching at cafes. Yes, I like coffee. I practice meditation and yoga to calm the mind and feet down. I attend festivals, concerts and gigs to speed the mind and feet up! I indulge in foreign cinema regularly.
I want to learn another language (I speak Punjabi and basic Portuguese). I attempt to experiment with food recipes and am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to the kitchen.
I have a dog called Zeus and a cat called Tidu. I write poetry and have performed spoken word on a stage in front of a crowd. As well as my passion for words and teaching them, I’m also passionate about seeing and experiencing the world.
Learning isn’t the most fun task, is it? Learning English can feel like an arduous task. I’ve heard many students proclaim such things! Well, this is where I come in. I’ve been teaching for many years to people from all over the world and for a variety of different functions and skills, so I know I have what it takes to help you achieve your learning goals. I find it so gratifying to see my students’ progress. Whether it’s a confidence thing, exam preparation, business communication, vocabulary, grammar (ahh!), I’m here to help.
I teach on Skype, face-to-face, one-on-one, small groups and in the classroom. You can find more information about my services below and if you want to arrange a chat to organise lessons or just to find out more information, you can email me below.
