About Me

Hi! I'm Lara Whybrow, a TEFL certified ESL teacher with 10 years of experience and a British South African dialect. I am highly skilled in helping students achieve breakthroughs in their learning and overcoming long standing obstacles in their English.

I teach General and Business English as well as Aviation English, helping pilots pass their ICAO and I taught for the Spanish Aviation Authority during my time at EF. I also help people prepare for their IELTS, CAE and other English exams.

A general lesson usually goes like this: Before the lesson, a student picks the lesson material they want to work on and I attach the lesson plan and materials to the class. During the lesson we discuss the topic and improve the student's knowledge and vocabulary of the topic, as well as work on pronunciation, listening, grammar and whatever else the student needs help with. I am always working on the lesson materials I use, finding new ones that other teachers or companies have made or making my own.

I love sharing funny memes with my students and followers!

Some lessons are easy to build confidence, some are difficult to help the student grow. Both work together to equip the student with a well rounded education. I will teach, then test, to ensure that my students progress. To determine your CEFR level I will send you my TrackTest link.

I taught English to support myself while learning Software Engineering and I achieved my goal of being a fully fledged SE, it is one of my main passions in life and I have built a few apps and IoT devices. When I am not actively coding I teach and in my spare time I work on my robot WilloBee.

My trial lessons

In the trial lesson we will identify your needs and formulate a plan of action. I will ask you a few questions about yourself, your family, your job and so on. Thereafter, I will administer a short 15 minute CEFR test if you don't have a level. Lastly, I will show you an example lesson plan as well as the current list of lesson plans to choose from.
