I took creative writing classes with Adele at the British Council. She explains things well and makes her sessions engaging and interactive. She is very friendly, encouraging and approachable. The matter I learned in her classes paved my way to writing columns in several newspapers and magazines. I highly recommend Adele.

Adele, as a friend , already has been a person to me, who teaches me different ways to express my thoughts in English as i listen to her speak and express herself in different ways. The simplicity and complexity in the words spoken by her is unique and quite interesting to learn . Really fascinating to learn how somone is fluent with thoughts and speech. Being from Nepal, i feel that Adele masters English literature and grammar even when English is used in our daily lives. Talking to her from time to time has improved my english language skills in a lot of ways starting from my confidence to my ways of expressing. With what it counts, i would definitely ask Adele to be my guide when it come to English practices.

Adele is one of the best mentors, tutors instructors, facilitators and trainers I have ever met in my journey as a teacher educator. What I like most is her input sessions where she arrives with full preparation and plans and with smiling face delivers her sessions making training session more interactive. During her sessions, she keeps the trainee participants engaged in pair and group activities, let the group leaders of each group present their group discussions and she monitors and prepares feedback. If a trainee attends her training sessions carefully, he/ she learns a lot as her sessions are like demo sessions and a trainee can have sufficient takeaways from her . I had my CELTA from Adele in British Council, Nepal in 2014. During celta classes, she was our teacher, guardian, parent, mentor and a good friend too. What I still remember is her feedback sessions. She is very strict in CELTA classroom . She is very very caring, loving, guiding and supporting to her trainees or students. In my life, I miss her classes in Celta. When I have to prepare session plans for my training sessions, write reports, collect and give feedback, observe classroom and run M.TOT, I recall her productive feedback and effective sessions. Adele is my best tutor/ trainer.
