Hi, I'm Gill. I've been teaching English for more than 15 years and I've lived and taught in 7 different countries - France, Russia, Mexico, Ukraine, South Africa, Switzerland and Angola, I've also been teaching online for more than 8 years and I've recently become a Certified and Accredited Neurolanguage Coach® (registered US and European trademark in the name of Rachel Marie Paling). A Neurolanguage Coach is basically someone who will not only teach you English but will help you become a better and more efficient learner.
As your teacher and Nerolanguage Coach I will not only help you learn English but I will help you become a successful language learner. After teaching English for 15 years I've noticed that my most successful students always have three specific things in common.
1. They are independent learners: this means that they don't rely on their teacher to lead them, they take control of their learning and allow their teacher to be their guide. They have also found their own unique ways of learning English that suit their learning styles and their interests.
2. They are goal orientated: They break down long term goals into small achievable goals and follow through on these goals.
3. They consistently do a little bit every day
I base my teaching around these 3 principles - as your teacher I will help you find the most effective ways for your to learn and I will help you become more independent. I will also help you break down your long-term goals into small ones, and help you achieve these goals. I will also inspire you to learn a little every day with my new, innovative system that I use with all my students, not only is it effective but it's also super interesting!
That's it! Please don't hesitate to write to me if you have any questions :)
