19 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.

Experience

I have been teaching English as a Foreign/Second Language first in Bilingual schools then private individual and group classes for 19 years. 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.

Viacheslav

Perfect! I highly recommend Joanne as a teacher of English. She is a driven, organised teacher who develops inspiring relationships with her students. Thank you very much.

JoAnne's response

Slav and I had the first evaluation class and will be working towards an improved IELTS score!

F
Farah

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!!!

T
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

M
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.

A
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 coached me thoroughly for couple weeks in regards with my IELTS exam, which is required for my GMC registration. To begin with, her method of teaching is an absolute delight and she effortlessly explains all the areas I struggled with. Additionally, she’s very patient while she teaches and she surely helped me in building my confidence. I would highly recommend her to anyone starting at any level.

Ayaka

JoAnne is an excellent teacher. She really prioritizes each student’s needs and design specific lessons accordingly. She offered me a range of learning materials that fits to my expectation perfectly. Her way of teaching is very encouraging too – I now have more confidence with using English and more importantly, I enjoy learning English more! As I do not have any exams that I need to pass, I only have classes one per week, yet I strongly feel that my English improved a lot especially in terms of vocabulary and pronunciation. I cannot recommend enough JoAnne as a teacher as well as a person. I am so grateful that she has been very passionate and dedicated during this difficult time due to the pandemic – thank you very much and I really look forward to keeping learning with you!

After study at a traditional english school I decided to find an alternative that would better suit my needs. I was looking for a native teacher, with a deep knowledge of English, it was then when I found JoAnne.

JoAnne is a great teacher for all levels! I started to have classes with her when my level was intermediate and immediately she identified where I was struggling and helped me to become more confident.

Although the 1-1 lessons are quite intense and you have to prepare yourself before the classes, Joo makes things much easier. She is super positive and encouraging teacher, focusing on your strengths and at the same time making sure you’re being challenged.

If you, like me, are struggling to learn english, independent of your goal (work, IELTs, communication) I highly recommend her.
