17 Years Experience teaching all Cambridge Assessment Exams. IELTS specialized. University applications and assignment writing support!

Methodology

I believe that people generally learn a foreign language to communicate. however each student is an individual and has their own very specific reason for learning. these reasons must be taken into account always.
My classes are fun, interesting, unconventional and lead to success in whatever you set out to achieve by learning.

Background

I have been teaching English as a Foreign/Second Language first in Bilingual schools then private individual and group classes. I work with students from pre intermediate and above and specialise in Cambridge Assessment Exams of all Levels. K1 to C2. (KET PET FCE CAE BEC CPE IELTS). I also help students with university application and give them guidance with their projects and thesis in terms of language used and correction. My students are predominantly pre adolescents to adults.

Perfect! It was my first try with online lessons and I feel very grateful for having met JoAnne. She is the kind of teacher that every student needs!! She helped me a lot to achieve my IELTS goals in order to pursue a master's degree, and I did it thanks to her.

JoAnne's response

I loved my first lesson with Farah and am itching to make a start with the IELTS training and watch her skills develop into a fantastic IELTS score!!

A
Alejandra

Perfect! I cannot recommend Joanne highly enough. She quickly identified my weaker areas and adapted her teaching methods to help me achieve my aim of passing the CAE C1. My spoken English was always much stronger but through her imaginative approach and gentle humour my weaker areas of reading, writing and my use of English improved out of sight in a very short time and I'm pleased to say that I achieved my goal and am the proud owner of the CAE C1 qualification. Thank you so much, Joanne.

JoAnne's response

Excellent, Ale comes home for classes we are working really hard for CAE!!!

Teresa

Perfect! There are no words to describe JoAnne and the help she provided. She's an excellent teacher and person, always encouraging me when I was demoralised and lifting my spirits even when I had personal problems. I would have never been able to pass CPE without her. In actual fact, I regretted since the very first lesson not having contacted her earlier. She's highly professional and will push your knowledge forward in every lesson. No time wasted. Have no doubts when choosing JoAnne, she's the best!

JoAnne's response

Excellent student! Always takes on board what has been taught! Studies meticulously and I believe will do extremely well in her C2 Prof exam

Marine

Perfect! I had classes to prepare the IELTS with Joanne, during three weeks, every morning, and it was really efficient. I had to work especially on the writing part, so she gave me tasks (homework) that we corrected together the next day. We also worked on the speaking part, by doing tasks in order to get the logic of the test and a kind of automatism. Overall, I had a really good experience, and I achieved the score I needed to enter the school I wanted to. Therefore, I recommend Joanne as a private teacher !

JoAnne's response

Marine and I will be doing an intensive course for IELTS. Can’t wait to get started.

Andrea

Perfect! Finally an English class which is fun, exciting and you don't feel the butterflies partying in your stomach.

JoAnne's response

Andrea is a lovely, fun student who wants to improve her already vast knowledge of English so as to continue her further studies in Finance. I look forward to seeing her progress and to continue teaching in this fun way!

JoAnne has a really professional and flexible approach to an education process. You will understand it even after the first lesson!

Alena

She is the best teacher I’ve ever had, and I really did enjoy my lessons with Jo. I passed IELTS with her (with a 7.5), a CLA test of the University of Bologna and now she is helping me with my English for English Liaison Interpreting (bachelor in Intercultural and linguistic mediation). JoAnne is a great teacher, very persistent with me to keep trying and I really like that because I need it.
