« I took English classes with Joanna four years ago and I remember it as if it was yesterday. It was simply a brilliant and super helpful experience. At the time my English was very basic and I struggled to speak fluently. Joanna's teaching practice is very student focused, she perfectly understands what individual needs are and tailors classes for students' specific purposes. Joanna's classes helped me achieve a confident level of English (both written and spoken) and develop a strong strategy to face the IELTS exam. I have successfully passed my IELTS, completed a Masters in the UK and have been working in London for four years now. Joanna is a professional, kind and thoughtful person. After my classes I decided to spend some time in Glasgow to improve my English further and gain work experience abroad. Joanna gave me useful recommendations that helped me start my journey prepared and with confidence. I recommend Joanna to anyone who wants to improve their English regardless of their current level. Thank you Joanna for your incredible help and professionalism! Simone »

Experienced English Teacher fluent in Italian offering English and Italian tutoring in Glasgow.

Methodology

I think it’s important to make sure that my learners feel comfortable studying one-to-one or in small groups outside a standard classroom environment. Building a rapport and showing that I am interested in my students and that their success is important to me, is crucial to ensuring the learning process is fruitful and enjoyable. Every learner is unique and by getting to know the learner, we can decide on the right study plan to help them achieve their goals.
No matter your learning style, I will make sure we find a lesson structure and study schedule that you are comfortable with and that helps you see results. I will also provide as much homework as you feel you can handle, if you think you could use the extra practice.


Experience

Hello! I’m a 31-year-old Glaswegian currently teaching at Live Language, a private language institution in Glasgow. Professionally experienced in teaching students of all ages, I also have a CELTA certification for teaching English as a foreign language from Cambridge University, a 1:1 BA (Hons) in Italian and Tourism (with Distinction in spoken Italian) from the University of Strathclyde, and I am currently studying towards obtaining my Diploma (DELTA), a Masters level certification in teaching English as a foreign language. I’m passionate about teaching, and working with learners of all ages to gain confidence in utilising a foreign language as a means of learning and communication. No matter your age or what exam, coursework or assignment you are preparing for, I’m happy to help.

Joanna's classes helped me achieve a confident level of English (both written and spoken) and develop a strong strategy to face the IELTS exam.

I have successfully passed my IELTS, completed a Masters in the UK and have been working in London for four years now.
