About me

I am a CELTA-certified English Language teacher with a business background training companies in Finland in Business English. My objective is to help companies increase the proficiency of their staff in the English language through an international perspective.

The training I provide is for people at all levels within a company and takes place weekly. The classes are focused on increasing confidence in spoken English using material directly related to the customer’s business.

My strengths are:

  • An extensive business background from Microsoft, Nokia, Motorola and other telecommunication companies working in multi-cultural environments.
  • A native English speaker with a standard accent and without dialect
  • I understand people’s needs when learning a foreign language because I am a language student myself (of Finnish).
