English Teacher passionate about teaching English, with many years of experience teaching worldwide.


Teaching for me is a lifelong learning process which will remain with me for the rest of my life. Through teaching a teacher also grows as I have. Teaching has taught me how to use different strategies to suit the individual student, how all students have different needs, goals, and aspirations.
Teaching requires a passion to share and acquire further knowledge, a commitment from the teacher to not to give up on her/his students but to support each student as required. As a teacher, I am not the institution lead but I am the leader for my class and it is of most importance for me to be an excellent role model for my students, as I represent the education system and the importance of acquiring knowledge, understanding and lifelong learning.


I am an ESOL teacher who has been working within the education field for many years starting off as an early years practitioner. I have graduated to Masters Level and completed my PGDip with teaching ESOL as my specialism. Whilst working as an ESOL teacher I have been fortunate enough to teach in the UK and in the Middle East in different colleges and universities with a pass rate of 86.6%. I hold a vast amount of experience in all four key areas and hold great passion for motivating others and ensuring the job is done at an exceptional level.


Rate for online lessons : £20/h


All lessons are £20p/h, however, I do offer a price reduction if I have a small group, this is discussed with the group at the point of interest.
Students should take note:
If students cancel a lesson in short notice (within 48hours of session starting time) or do not turn up they will be invoiced for the full hour/session.
