Former BBC Journalist offering coaching for IELTS including listening, speaking, reading and writing practice

Methodology

I work with dedicated students who are still studying in primary/secondary education and international students who speak English as a second language. My teaching method varies from student to student depending on which structure best fits them. But the basic techniques are: teaching the basics associated with IELTS, polishing the foundation, lots of worksheets returned marked with feedback, assessments, and weekly homework if required.

Experience

As a journalist, an excellent grasp of the English language is key. During my MA and BA, I was a part-time tutor (3 years) at university and assisted more than 15 students in courses including English. Results always came with a grade or two higher than expected.
