Helene

Experience

I have taught learners from all over the world, including high school students,
apprentices, university students, professionals and mature students, who
come for the sheer joy of learning the language and experiencing British life
and culture.
Last year, during lockdown, the college had to switch to online teaching, which
I had never done before, but found that I really enjoyed it. I have always been
enthusiastic about teaching one-to-one and I can see the benefits of combining
this with the flexibility of online learning and I am looking forward to doing
more of it.
I have always been passionate about supporting the expectations, aspirations
and progress of my students, whatever their backgrounds.
I very much look forward to helping you achieve your goals.

About me

Hello and Grüezi. I’m Helene and I’m fortunate that my mother is English and
my father is German Swiss so I grew up speaking both English and (Swiss) German. My teaching career started in Zurich where I managed and taught at my family’s private English language school. Love was what brought me to England many years ago and since then I have
lived in a traditional thatched cottage on the south coast of England, between Brighton and Bournemouth.
Fortunately, soon after moving here, I was offered a job as an EFL (English as a Foreign Language) lecturer at a local Further Education college, and havetaught there ever since. The college encouraged me not only to do the University of Cambridge Diploma in the Teaching of English as a Foreign Language to Adults, but also a Master of Arts Degree in Applied Linguistics and Teaching English as a Foreign Language.
Our department (with up to 30 teachers) has been an important part of the
college, and I have had the opportunity to create schemes of work for, and
teach all the Cambridge exams, IELTS and the Anglia exams as well as general
English at all levels. I have also been involved in delivering sessions to my
colleagues as part of their professional development.
