Capo Addestratore e Direttore
Sono madrelingua inglese di Sydney, Australia, attualmente vivo a Budapest. Sono un cittadino globale, ho vissuto e lavorato in diversi paesi e sono appassionata di mescolarmi con persone di diverse culture e origini linguistiche.
Fornisco corsi di inglese per l'inglese generale, commerciale e accademico a privati e aziende. Inoltre, offro servizi di gestione della carriera e correzione di bozze. Sono un insegnante di lingua italiana qualificata ed esperta e fornisco anche questo servizio linguistico.
Il mio obiettivo principale è facilitare il successo del cliente, che si tratti di un voto IELTS migliorato, riduzione dell'accento, un nuovo lavoro o promozione, migliori competenze interculturali o maggiore sicurezza e abilità in inglese o italiano. Amo le lingue, e soprattutto voglio aiutare ad aprire nuove porte e opportunità professionali per i clienti con l'arte della comunicazione efficace.
I am a native Hungarian based in Budapest and a near-native speaker of English. I lived and worked in the UK for two years in my early twenties and my passion for the English language originated there. Living in London, I had the chance to meet not only native speakers but people of different cultural backgrounds from all around the world. The need and desire to connect with others and express who I am made me an enthusiastic and focused language learner. I came up with ways of studying that worked for me and made my progress efficient.
Meanwhile, it became clear to me that knowing a language is not simply a tool to express who we are. Conquering it gives the opportunity to broaden the self and to expand who we are. The reward is not only the ability to speak a language correctly, but as the mind gets more flexible in the process of learning, our personality is also shaped by it and we are more open to the new, to difference, and, this way, to others.
My main goal is to make people aware of these opportunities and to encourage and help students to find their own ways to become successful learners. I believe that there is a method for everyone, even if finding it requires hard work.
Qualifications and Experience
I completed my studies at Eotvos Lorand University, Budapest. I hold a Master's Degree in Teaching English Language and Literature. I am also a Philologist in English Language and Literature and in American Studies. During my academic studies, my main focus was on phonetics and phonology and on cognitive linguistics.
With all of this knowledge, I have successfully adapted to my profession. I place great emphasis on pronunciation since I believe it is the key to quick improvement. I also find it useful to draw attention to the cognitive workings behind language use whenever it can trigger interest and raise language awareness.
I have been teaching English full-time for 18 years. Throughout these years, I have had the chance to try myself out in different pedagogical situations. I've worked in language schools, I've held individual and group classes, small ones and bigger ones for corporate companies, and I've taught one-on-one classes extensively with private students. I have experience in teaching secondary school teenagers and adults of all age groups.
