Hello! My name is Holly.
I was born and lived in Northern England and Scotland before moving to Stockholm five years ago to produce a Public Arts program. In this time, Sweden has become my home, living between Stockholm and Värmland with my family and two dogs. I run my own small business producing contemporary art and teaching English in the evenings. This is a vocation I chose to continue after moving to Sweden, as I enjoy it a lot and it felt like a great opportunity to share my own enthusiasm for language.
My approach to tutoring is to provide consistent support and lessons that are tailored to individual needs . This has previously included long terms support throughout school years; short term input before specific exams or before moving to a new course conducted in English; and at university level with a focus on academic writing to advance skills in structure, grammar and word choice.
This range of levels and adaptive approach is possible due to my own diverse experience in teaching and tutoring. I have a UCCE teaching qualification alongside a BA (Hons) in Philosophy and a post-masters in Critical Architecture. In addition to private tutoring, I have taught in one-off workshops in High Schools and advised on the creation of new courses to be taught at university. However, one-on-one tutoring is something I particularly enjoy as it enables tailored support to different students needs, and this method has led me to support some students from the age of 12 to adulthood when they have since invited me to their university graduation!
Lessons are typically one hour per week but this can be negotiated depending on your needs, finances and availability.
And most importantly, I am in the same shoes as my students as I begin my journey to become fluent in Swedish!
It is easy to practice speaking English around Stockholm, but work on your writing skills I would highly recommend dedicated lessons.
It is fairly quick to learn English, especially if you enjoyed TV and films! But to be professionally proficient can take longer as English grammar can be complex but totally do-able once you get to know the rules.
