I have taught in universities and schools in the UK, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, and Bulgaria. I have taught adults and children. I like to make fun lessons that suit your interests and use as much real life English as possible.
I am a native speaking, CELTA qualified English teacher and have taught English to speakers of other languages for over 6 years in universities, language schools, and private tutoring.
I have taught Academic English, and proof read for students at university helping them to achieve Bachelors, Masters, and Phd degrees in the UK and abroad.
I have prepared students for exam English, particularly IELTS where my students improved their scores greatly and gained the level they needed for immigration, studying abroad, and for job promotions. I am very happy to see my students achieve so much.
I have also taught TOEIC and TOEFL to students who needed a certain level of English in order to validate their degrees in their own country.
I can also teach General English both to children, teenagers, and adults.
I think it is important to have creative, useful lessons that consider learners motivations and interests. I try to incorporate as much real-life speaking and listening practice as possible. I create a fun and safe learning environment where it is ok to make mistakes so that you can learn from them.
I've also experienced living and working in other countries so I understand cultural differences, and how sometimes it can be difficult to adapt to a different way of life and way of doing things.
For students who require business, academic, or examination English the rate is £20 per hour. These can also be bought at a discounted rate in blocks of 5 or 10 hours.
For students requiring General English the rate is £16 per hour.
I also teach workshops where the rate is £14 per hour, however there may be more than one student attending.
I studied Anthropology and International Development at the University of Sussex, UK - one of the best universities in the world. I studied my English teaching qualification (CELTA) at the top center in the UK (St Giles International) and I am currently studying Learning and Development online as I am very interested in e-learning. I was selected for and completed the British Council English Teacher Graduate Scheme and recieved additional training in IELTS.
I have taught Exam English (IELTS, TOEIC, TOEFL), General English, Business English, English for Academic Purposes (University English, proof reading, presentations, writing and research skills), English for specific purposes (law, aviation, nursing, retail, health and social care, engineering, literature), and conversational English. I have also taught cultural immersion.
I have taught children ages 3+, teenagers, and adults of all ages and nationalities.

Perfect! Sarah est une professeur en or ! Sympathique et pédagogue, elle prépare très bien ses cours au préalable et répond aux demandes de ses élèves. Je sens que je progresse déjà !
Marie-Sarah is an able and enthusiastic student who engages with materials and classes and communicates in good time when she needs to reschedule lessons owing to work commitments.
“Sarah is a very good English teacher. I had face to face lessons with her. I work in the construction industry and wanted to improve my English for this as I work with people from different countries and we communicate in English. She helped me a lot to improve my speaking confidence and vocabulary. I also learned technical vocabulary for my work. She helps me to understand some differences in business culture in the West. She made studying very fun and gave me a lot of praise and feedback. Since I improve my English with Sarah I got a promotion at work. I would recommend Sarah to anyone. She is very friendly, patient and funny. Thank you Sarah.” Asad Javed, Saudi Arabia
Sarah is the best teacher I’ve ever had! She is always well prepared and enthusiastic. She helped me with IELTS preparation, I got a 7.5 overall which literally changed my life - now I am studying in the UK!
I definitely recommend Sarah she’s been teaching me for the last 4 years. She is brilliant always on time and the price charged for the lessons are extremely reasonable.
