Specialist teacher to international students offers academic writing support, IELTS classes, editing and proofreading

Methodology

As a qualified DELTA teacher, with an MA (Distinction) in Teaching English for Academic English, I can offer you a high quality service in supporting you in your university assignments, dissertations and theses. I am also a skilled IELTS teacher, keen to help you develop the thinking and language skills you need to gain the score you require. I am a friendly, supportive teacher, who is willing to challenge you to greater success.

Experience

I have been teaching English to international students from many different countries for 13 years, specialising in academic skills and IELTS, and most recently have worked with students progressing to or studying at university. If you need a high IELTS score to work in the UK as a nurse, doctor or pharmacist, you can feel confident in my guidance, as I have helped medical practitioners achieve scores up to 8.5. I have also received positive feedback on the support I can offer in editing and proofreading. A recent student commented "I genuinely would like to thank you for your professionalism, level of attention, feedback and for the overall quality of your service that was beyond my expectations".
