Of British nationality, but an Australian citizen, I tutored and mentored secondary school and university students for nearly 17 years. I have a Masters in English Literature & a Post-Graduate Certif

Methodology

An English teacher for 17 years, based in Sydney and Bali, I am now living in Paris, working as an English teacher, translator and copy-writer. Given my prior working history, my advanced English skills, my unique teaching techniques in both private lessons and group work, and the fact that I worked as a researcher and journalist for Australian television and magazines, using my english abilities, I feel I am an English teacher with rich and varied experiences that allows me to comfortably work within in any of the above areas.

An Australian, of British nationality, I hold an MA in Literature, a post-graduate degree (TESOL) in teaching English (both issued by Macquarie University, Sydney). Having worked in secondary education and the university for nearly 17 years, and in private tutoring and Skype tutoring from home, I have extensive experience in the field of training and I possess all the pedagogy required for this position . I am at your disposal for any questions and would love to offer a first lesson to discuss your needs

Testimonial 1
From: kara sandler (MASADA)
Sent: Tuesday, 5 May 2012
Hi Linda,

I heard you were leaving to live in Europe, and would be tutoring over there. So I wanted to thank you for everything you did to help me achieve the marks I did, and to remind you of just how much you helped.

By the end of yr 11 I was ranked in the 20s out of 40 students, before any tutoring. By the end of trials in Yr 12 I was ranked 8 out of 40. My mark for English at the end of HSC was 93 and my UAI mark was 95.85

Clearly there is no doubt that my HUGE improvement in English was because of you!

Thank you so much for all your hard work and effort
Best of luck for the future
Love Kara

From: Kelly Hollow (NORTHERN BEACHES CHRISTIAN SCHOOL)

Hi Linda,
I've been meaning to call you for a long time now!

Just wanted to let you know that I got 92% for my HSC English exam mark and am very, very happy with it. I'm currently at Macquarie studying a Bachelor of International Communications. So a big thank you to you for everything you did last year - your tutoring helped me tremendously!

Thanks again for everything, Kelly.

Testimonial 3:
From: Darrianne (BARKER)
Sent: Tuesday, 5 May 2009

Thank you so much for everything and good luck in Bali and France!

Our son Tyson was enrolled in an exclusive boys school for years 7 to 12, leaving in 2007.
Tyson is an intelligent boy but we found that he was struggling with his comprehension and structure of essay’s for English even though the teaching standard was supposed to be of a high quality.

We engaged Linda Hamilton Evans as our son’s tutor for a period of 3 years and found that Linda connected with Tyson in a fashion that he could understand and filled in all the gaps that he had somehow managed to miss at school.

Tyson went on to achieve a UAI of 92.3 and we attribute much of this success to Linda’s tutoring intervention and would have no hesitation in recommending her talents for future children to achieve great results for English.

Yours sincerely,
D Donnelly

Testimonial 4:
From: Tom Shearman (NORTH SYDNEY BOY'S HIGH)
Sent: Thursday, 25 January 2015

Linda,

For my results, I got over 90 in all my subjects, and a 93 in English Advanced. I got a UAI of 98.35, which got me comfortably into my Media Communications course at Sydney Uni, which I have accepted and deferred.
I'm looking for full time work, and I have a casual job for summer. Hopefully by winter I'll have saved enough money to travel to South America.
I'd like to thank you again for all your help over the last 2 years, and I hope we can stay in touch as you have been amazing.
Cheers, Tom Shearman

Testimonial 5:
From: Joshua Kangisser (MASADA)
Sent: Sunday, 10 May 2012

Hi Linda,
I have attached a testimonial as I really hope you’re going to continue to help students when you move to Europe!
I am currently studying at Macquarie University, doing a double degree of Commerce & Law, after graduating from high school. I attended a small private school, where the students were extremely competitive, fighting for the best internal ranks.

English was never a strong point for me. I sat Advanced English, but continued to struggle, floating near the bottom of my year group. Therefore, at the beginning
of year 11, I started attending a tutor who had quite a good reputation.

However, throughout the 11th and most of the 12th grade, my marks never got better.

In a state of desperation and absolute frustration, I left my previous tutor. I was in a stressed state as internal end of year exams were only a few weeks away. On recommendation, I contacted Linda who listened to my case & very kindly squeezed me into her full schedule.

Given the short time I received lessons with Linda before the Internal exams, my understanding of what was required in the course began to broaden. She also introduced me to new techniques and approaches to an essay, helping me re-build my approach to exams. Sadly it wasn't enough time to significantly improve my marks, and i finished ranked 26 out of a group of 40.

However, in the period before finals, I worked very closely with Linda, as she dedicated much of her time to helping me practice and develop my essay strategies, also marking essays of mine.

Linda's brilliance wasn't just in her ability to teach me to grasp the question and correctly formulate a sophisticated response; her true brilliance was in the way she gave me a new level of confidence, to such a high extent I could freely write an essay to my best ability. Whereas before my low confidence just helped my marks spiral downwards

As a result, I climbed to achieve a final exam mark of 95 - being the 2nd highest in the year group. This was even better then a select few of my friends who I never dreamed of beating, having never previously received higher marks then them in any given section of an exam. My internal mark was 84, however with my 95 and 84 combined, it averaged to 90, thus being in the top performance band.

I never dreamed of receiving a Band 6 in English, but having done so, it helped me achieve a UAI of 96.9, thus paving the way into my degree of choice.

Perfect! Linda est une femme et professeur remarquable. Ses cours sont motivants, sa méthode performante qui permet de faire des progrès rapidement. Très bon niveau d'écoute. A recommander.

Linda's response

Working with teenagers who are already very talented in English is extremely rewarding - and Jean falls into this category! Each week he challenges himself, asks the right sort of questions and always completes the work I have given him the lesson before. His improvement is obvious, and os reflected in his recent marks, and his thirst to learn more and to tackle challenges is so lovely to witness. I really look forward to our sessions!

P
Petrova

Perfect! Linda is a great teacher, very encouraging, and at the same time very honest in her assessment. Her courses are creative and stimulating. She provides me with loads of interesting material to work on my key problems: phrasal verbs, linking words, enriching my vocabulary, etc. Linda has a very rich vocabulary, so it's a pleasure to talk to her during the course. She has a huge experience in preparing for different kinds of tasks: tests, writing assignments, interviews, public speaking,... I was lucky to having found her.

Linda est un prof formidable, très encourageante, elle n'hésite pas à évaluer les connaissances de façon précise et honnête. Elle identifie très vite les lacunes et dispose d'une grande quantité d’exercices pour travailler sur vos problèmes clés. Elle a une grande expérience et peut vous préparer à des épreuves de différent type: tests d'anglais pour entrer dans une école britannique/américaine, présentation en public, entretien, ...

Linda's response

I really look forward to my weekly sessions with Anna as she loves challenging herself and willingly accepts the tasks I set her each week! We move between grammatical exercises, written tasks, discussions, and listening exercises and Anna honestly excels in each! Although originally she contacted me to prepare her for an oral job interview / presentation, our lessons have evolved into wiring essays, business correspondence, film reviews and conversations that flit from one subject to another without Anna needing to prepare herself for the changes in topic. It's extremely gratifying working with Anna!

Almes

Perfect! Linda est une excellente professeure d'Anglais. J'ai cours avec elle plusieurs fois par semaine pour améliorer mes compétences en écriture. Elle m'a aider a faire des devoirs d'ecrit de 5000 mots. Grace a elle j'ai repris confiance en moi et compris comment correctement ecrir un essay. De plus, elle me corrige et m'explique mes erreurs grammaticals de façon a m'eviter de les reproduire. En quelques seances, j'ai fais beaucoup de progrés. Linda a une vraie methode de travail pour faire progresser ses eleves, elle est tres gentille et a l'ecoute.
Je continuerai avec elle tout au long de mes etudes universitaire et Je la recommande vivement.

Linda's response

I love working with people who are committed and who share my love of the English language! Almes has developed enormously - her mastery of English in essay writing is a joy to witness. I'm so happy that she has decided to continue with academic English for the rest of her post-graduate studies as, quite honestly, her English is better than many English speakers I know, and it will be such a pleasure watching her continue to develop!

K
Karolina

Perfect! Ce fut un grand plaisir de rencontrer Linda, qui est une excellente professeure d'Anglais. J'ai eu cours avec elle une fois par semaine pendant un mois et demi. Elle fournit des ressources d'une qualité exceptionnelle. Grâce à elle, j'ai repris confiance en moi et réussi à atteindre le score que je souhaitais au TOEFL (111). Je la recommande sans réserve !

Linda's response

Karolina first came to me to prepare for her TOEFL exam, and I realise straight away how dedicated she was and how much she loved pushing her boundaries in order to succeed.

It is such a pleasure to work with someone whose level of English is better than most English native speakers! And to now have the opportunity to work with Karolina again, in a more academic capacity, where the focus is on writing critical essays for her GRE Academic exam, is so refreshing as I watch her tackle extremely challenging written tasks that are normally undertaken by English speakers at a postgraduate level!

It goes without saying that, to have reached this level and to have the ability to pass this exam with high grades, Karolina is a major achiever with an incredible gift!

Mélanie

Perfect! How I can describe Linda ? There are so many words !!
She is the best teacher I've ever had. I enjoy learning English with her. In a few weeks, I feel that my level has progressed significantly.
Don't be afraid. She will listen to you and encourage you.
She is patient, kind, competent, professional.
She is a person who will take care of you. That's why you will succeed with her, I'm convinced.

Linda's response

Melanie - it is such a pleasure to work with a student who is not only committed and dedicated, but who has made such an enormous progress in such a short time! I love reading the little essays you have been writing, and love the way you have embraced the idea of 'working outside the square' as we explore different ways of appreciating the English language!

On top of that I really look forward to our sessions together as you are so enthusiastic and receptive to these new exercises that I have created to get us through this 'lockdown'

Thank you for your lovely review - and keep working on your project for this week!

Ilan

Perfect! Fantastique professeur ! Grâce à elle, j'ai obtenu très rapidement une note bien supérieure à celle que j'espérais à l'examen du TOEFL. Linda sait parfaitement cerner les besoins de l'élève et sa méthode de travail est redoutablement efficace ! De plus, elle est extrêmement sympathique et les cours sont très agréable.

Linda's response

Thank you Ilan - and congratulations, not just on your amazing TOEFL mark, but on getting a scholarship to do your Masters at Yale!! If anyone deserved to do so well it's you, given your dedication and commitment. I'm so glad to be working with you again as we tighten up your essay skills for your new academic year in the USA! Plus, on another note, you're just such a lovely person to work with :)

Allan

Perfect! What a fantastic professor!

Linda m'aide à préparer le TOEFL IBT pour lequel nous travaillons toutes les épreuves. Je dois mettre en lumière son sens de la perfection, notamment pour la partie writing pour laquelle je dois obtenir 27/30.

Elle exigeante et place la barre très haute, mais c'est ce que je cherche! Cela me pousse à être critique sur mon travail et, surtout, travailler davantage.

En outre, Linda m'a aidé à chacune des étapes de mes candidatures en Master of Laws, au Royaume-Uni. Il ne fait aucun doute qu'elle jouera un rôle décisif dans le succès de mon parcours académique.

Linda's response

Definitely a star student! Allan has a dedication and commitment to improve and a fastidious approach to achieving this! He deserves to do well as he has thrown himself completely into the challenge and has accepted my advice and criticisms with grace and understanding. An absolute pleasure working with him - and Allan, all the very best luck on your new academic journey!

I
Ina

Perfect! C'est la prof qu'il faut avoir si vous vous sentez complètement perdu en anglais en prépa!
Personnellement, pendant mes 2 premières années de prépa ECS, je n'ai jamais compris comment faire un "essay". Mes professeurs restaient assez vagues sur la méthode et je n'ai donc jamais compris ce qui n'allait pas et pourquoi mes notes variaient de 4 à 10 et jamais au delà. Linda a su me donner une méthode claire et précise pour que je n'écrive plus juste 250 mots mis bout à bout sur ma copie mais un vrai essay. Elle m'a aussi fait prendre conscience de l'importance de la grammaire et repère toutes les fautes qu'un professeur d'anglais non natif d'un pays anglo-saxon pourrait laisser et ça je pense que c'est le plus important. En plus, elle s'investit vraiment avec ses élèves et cela donne envie de persister dans ses efforts, surtout quand on a l'impression qu'on n'y arrivera jamais.
Merci à toi Linda de m'avoir réconcilié avec l'anglais ! ;)

Linda's response

Such a pleasure working with a student who not only has a huge thirst for understanding how English works, and how to structure an essay, but someone who really listens.

Each week the work Ina is submitting is increasingly more sophisticated, her errors are few and far between and her passion to do well in English is incredibly rewarding for me as her teacher!

A real pleasure working with you Ina!

Enfin, je tiens à vous remercier pour votre gentillesse, mais également pour votre rapidité dans la délivrance de documents d'une grand qualité rédactionnelle.

Je n'hésiterai pas à vous recontacter en cas de besoin.

Bonne continuation à vous, mille mercis :)

J'ai eu la chance d'avoir Linda comme professeur pour préparer mes concours d'entrée aux grandes écoles en anglais.
Linda m'a apporté une méthode de travail analytique efficace pour aborder les exercices de thèmes et de versions de façon plus fluide.
Avec Linda j'ai pu : améliorer ma compréhension à l'écrit, tirer bénéfices des astuces et réflexes à avoir face à un article ou un texte difficile en anglais, améliorer mes compétences à l'écrit en adoptant un vrai style d'écriture en anglais.
Tout ceci m'a permis d'obtenir d'excellentes notes à l'écrit comme à l'oral.
Je recommande vivement Linda pour sa pédagogie, son professionnalisme et sa motivation sans failles pour tirer son élève vers le haut et lui permettre de progresser rapidement et efficacement.

Ses cours m'ont permis de faire d'énormes progrès et j'ai obtenu le meilleur score possible à l'examen Bulats !!!! J'ai apprécié sa gentillesse, son dévouement et aussi son sens de l'humour qui a rendu ma formation en anglais très plaisante.

Interview with Linda

QUESTION 01 | 08
Parlez-vous couramment cette langue en raison de vos origines ou parce qu'un professeur vous a donné envie de l'apprendre ?
Linda — Née en Angleterre de parents australiens et afrikans passionnés par la littérature, j'ai grandi avec un flair et une passion pour ma langue, ce qui n'a été valorisé et encouragé que par le plus formidable professeur de littérature anglaise de mes années au secondaire.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Citez le personnage vivant, historique ou fictif qui est, selon vous, le représentant emblématique de la culture en question !
Linda — Je ne suis pas sûr de la culture à regarder ici - ma culture (qui est diverse du fait que je n'ai jamais vécu dans un même lieu pendant une longue période - j'ai donc de nombreux pays d'origine) ou la France qui est maintenant chez moi ...

En général, je m'inspire de la musique, de l'art et de la littérature - de tous les genres. Donc, je ne saurais pas qui choisir ... de Shakespeare à Faulkner; de Blake à TS Eliot; de Da Vinci à Picasso; de Mozart à Piaf…. Des genres entiers inspirent; les individus moins
QUESTION 03 | 08
Y-a-t-il, dans celle-ci, un mot, une expression, une tradition ou un comportement typique qui vous amuse particulièrement ?
Linda — Les paroles de Coco Chanel reflètent le mieux ma vie: "J'ai décidé qui je voulais être, et c'est qui je suis".
QUESTION 04 | 08
En quoi savoir parler cette langue est important, que ce soit scolairement, professionnellement ou d'un point de vue plus personnel ?
Linda — L'anglais n'est pas seulement une langue malléable et une langue riche en diversité avec ses méandres, elle est aussi sans aucun doute la langue internationale des affaires et de la communication et la langue du monde virtuel.
QUESTION 05 | 08
Quelle est la difficulté principale de cette langue et ce qui peut favoriser son apprentissage ?
Linda — L'un des cauchemars des locuteurs de notre langue serait nos 'phrasal verbs' qui sont extrêmement importants car beaucoup ont pratiquement remplacé le verbe original. Etre capable de les utiliser confortablement fait une différence dans la fluidité. En fait, il y a une demi-douzaine de domaines clés de l'anglais qui peuvent poser des problèmes, mais une fois maîtrisés, le locuteur de langue seconde aura une maîtrise beaucoup plus riche de l'anglais
QUESTION 06 | 08
Une anecdote en rapport avec votre métier ou votre scolarité à nous raconter ?
Linda — Quand j'ai commencé à enseigner à Paris, je croyais que, même si j'avais un double master en anglais, je ne le ferais que pendant une brève période, car j'avais toutes les intentions de poursuivre mon autre parcours professionnel - l'œnologie. Cependant, j'ai trouvé un tel plaisir à regarder mes clients approfondir leurs connaissances et leur maîtrise de l'anglais, que j'ai choisi de faire de cette carrière ma carrière.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Aidez-nous à vous connaître un peu mieux en évoquant vos différents voyages.
Linda — D'origine australienne, j'ai toujours eu une passion pour tout ce qui est français et j'étais donc déterminée à déménager ici pour vivre un jour. C'est arrivé - mais d'une manière très détournée. Ma vie antérieure m'a amené dans presque tous les pays asiatiques pour affaires lorsque je possédais un groupe de centres éducatifs privés; ensuite en Inde où j'ai passé plusieurs années en tant que deisgner de la mode et de la bijouterie; en europe des dizaines de fois au cours des années à partir de 15 ans; et juste avant de déménager en France, j'ai passé 12 ans à Bali dans le développement d'hôtels et de villas privées. Ma vie a donc toujours été consacrée à l'emballage des valises et à l'embarquement dans les avions. Jusqu'à présent - comme je suis enfin où j'ai vraiment l'impression d'être chez moi.
QUESTION 08 | 08
Qu'est-ce qui fait de vous un Superprof, en + de cette capacité à s'exprimer en plusieurs langues ?
Linda — Je pense que je représente la langue anglaise sous sa meilleure forme comme une langue que j'adore pour toutes ses complexités et pour ses simplicités. Ajoutez à cela le fait que rencontrer des gens et enseigner sont deux de mes passions, ce qui explique sans doute pourquoi certaines semaines, je travaille plus de 70 heures!
