English Language and Literature for Secondary School

stephanie-winterford_4Are you a multi-lingual family whose children speak English? Are you looking for an opportunity for your children (aged 12 – 18) to study English as they would in an Anglophone country? Stephanie Winterford offers classes that will teach your children to express themselves fluently in English, orally and in writing, as per recognised, leading global educational standards.

In the age of ubiquitous screens, it is my pleasure to remind children and young adults that literature and creative writing are irreplaceable! I would love to meet your children! I will teach them to love to learn.
