I am only too aware how confidence and interest plays a role in your ability to make progress. A good IELTS score for speaking and writing demands that you express yourself as naturally and logically as possible using good English. Understanding that meaningful learning often comes from recognising mistakes you have made, I encourage you to give of your best; to not fear mistakes, but rather to learn from them. No matter your level, be confident that I will work with you to improve your band score whilst making the lessons enjoyable.
After an initial trial lesson, where I will attempt to know you a little and set expectations, I will design lessons to highlight your problem areas so that we can work on strengthening your skills and address areas of weakness. So often, I have seen students waste time just repeating test papers, without identifying and focusing on areas that need to be improved.

It is important to get the best results for your time and money spent. I look forward to working with you!
I am CELTA certified through International House, London, and became a certified IELTS examiner 4 years ago. I hold a degree in IT (UK) an EMBA (South Africa) and am a certified project manager (USA). Currently, I am studying for a doctoral degree in Peace Studies, linking education as a primary contributor to sustainable development and peace.
Over the last 15 years, I have taught adults various courses and in the last seven years, my teaching has focused on English as a second language for general, medical and professional purposes. More recently in China, I have taught classes of 30 plus students as well as working with smaller groups of 4 or less, to prepare for the IELTS and BEC exams, as well as help doctors and nurses, prepare for a 3-6 month assignment in an English-speaking country. I have also taught English for Academic Purposes at university level and General English.
My best is one-on-one or smaller groups as this is where you can really get to know each other and feel as if you are helping. I have often not just taught English but also become an integral part of the whole planning process of an adventure overseas.
I have lived and worked in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and China. Each experience has been wonderful in its own way and has made me appreciate that we are all one and yet we are so different. It is our differences that make the world so interesting and wonderful!
My last seven years in China have been a wonderful experience for me and has kicked me off with a new career considering education as a supporting pillar of peace. Recently I have started to get involved in permaculture as a way of life to create community and be in harmony with nature.
I enjoy making my surroundings beautiful, chatting with friends from many diverse parts of the world and family time. I have recently become a grandmother to my special granddaughter, Lucca Joy, who has stolen my heart!
