Hawthorn English Teacher

Hello, my name’s Alison and I am British. I studied for my degree in Business Studies at Staffordshire University and I also have the Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults from Cambridge. I taught English in France for many years before moving to Singapore in 2016. My main aim is to help all my students enjoy English a little more and to try and inspire enthusiasm, as I truly believe it makes learning so much easier.

I learnt to speak French fluently when I moved to France and  I understand how daunting and scary it can be to learn a second language.

I use a variety of techniques to teach, however I will always try to get to know my students individually so as to help them as much as I can with their future goals. I strive to make the lessons a relaxed and comfortable environment where you aren’t afraid to ask questions.
