I have recently begun teaching English in Berlin after many years working as an architect in London.
My teaching covers many different types of English, hence my website is called ‘English for Everything’. I design bespoke courses and choose topics and areas of study which are relevant and interesting to my students.
From my formal education and my own studies I have a broad overview of the cultural context in which English is used and I am familiar with a wide range of spoken and written styles of English. Through my work as an architect on projects such as the London 2012 Olympics I have come into contact with people from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures and have observed what happens when they use English to communicate with each other, as a first, second or third language.
I offer 1 to 1 and small group English teaching plus proof-reading and copy-writing services in English. I have taught courses for a number of purposes including examinations, presentations, business development and career development.
I studied architecture at Cambridge University in England and am a qualified architect. I have also taught architectural design at University level in the UK; I have a CELTA qualification from the Berlin School of English and I speak German to level B2.2. I enjoy practising art and have recently organised a collaborative art project called Exquisite Whispers.
