I like my students to feel confident speaking the language so I use role plays, pictures and real-life scenarios and lots of encouraging feedback. I also tailor the lessons to the student so if they want writing or listening or grammar, I am happy to teach that and put it across simply. Lessons are communicative and fun.
I have been teaching for many years- 24 years teaching French in South Africa and 14 years teaching ESOL and EFL in the UK and France. I love helping beginners to grow in confidence especially with their speaking. Learning a language is FUN!
Joanne is a very good teacher! She taught me so much in English and also in life. She cares a lot about their students. When I arrived in Cambridge I spoke English at a very bad level and at the end (less than 4 months) I was confident in English and had a B2 level. She gave me the strenght to take the Cambridge Exam Advanced (C1).
Joanne has been an excellent teacher for me an I’d recommend her for anyone looking for learning English at all levels. She is very encouraging and I think her friendly and professional manner are perfect for motivating students like me through their learning journey. Finally Joanne is a lovely person so my classes with her were absolutely great!
I met Joanne in Cambridge four years ago, as a teacher of English and CLS principal. She is kind, friendly, lovely, extremely caring and committed. She develops inspiring relationships with students. I believe she will be an excellent tutor and I highly recommend her.
Johanne is an excellent English teacher, he conducts very playful and dynamic classes, if you know a little English he helps you correct fillers or mistakes, and if you don't know anything, he supports you at all times so that you achieve a complete understanding of the topics, It uses a methodology that I had never seen in any previous course that I had taken, it is a methodology that allows you to understand very quickly each new concept, rule, way of expressing an idea or concept. Although I participated in a group class, Johanne has the ability to memorize your weaknesses to review them in a personalized way over and over again in class until you learn. 100% recommended.
Joanne taught English to my wife's son, who is French, over a period of several months. What made it more of a challenge is the fact that he is blind. She took the time to research, in advance, how to adapt her teaching methods, and she continued to adapt them as she encountered the various methods blind people "read" and study. She was very helpful throughout, very patient, and went to extra lengths to sure that Grégoire understood and was able to fully participate. The proof of her teaching ability is the fact that Grégoire passed, at the first attempt, the Cambridge International English exam, and that to a good level. Thank you Joanne.
Joanne is such a great teacher. She has supported me massively in improving my English language skills as well as helping me with IELTS , due to her support I have achieved an IELTS score that I can only dream of if it wasn’t due to Joanne . She is a very experienced, heartening tutor and a very kind person.
I highly recommend Joanne if you need help achieving a certain level of any area Of English language.
I have known Joanne for many years and know her to be someone of integrity and commitment. She taught both my children in high school and they loved her! She has amazing language skills and the ability to explain them, and make learning fun. It would be a privilege to be taught by her.
