Hi! My name is Victoria. I'm originally from England and am a native speaker of British English. I lived in Sweden for 4 years but recently moved to Austria for a change of scenery. I like spending a long time in a country because it gives you a real insight into the culture and language.
I'm an active person with diverse interests. I play the Irish whistle, dance lindy-hop and read a lot in my spare time. I love music of all kinds and am a keen traveller. I hope to travel to Asia, as soon as I have saved up enough money.
I took a CELTA course to become qualified as an English teacher and have been tutoring both English and Swedish for the past two years. I love teaching because it's so nice to see the progress that the student makes between the beginning and the end of the lesson. I like thinking up imaginative activities to help learners understand certain grammar points, and games to help fluency.
Please note: After a break in August, I am now back teaching on Cafetalk. However, my schedule is still a bit changeable as a result of my recent move to Austria. I hope to be back on a more firm schedule from October onwards.
I'm looking forward to meeting you in one of my lessons!
