About Me

Hi, I'm Lindy - a TESOL trained teacher with a degree in English and Linguistics. I love language, travel and talking to the world's citizens! I have taught business, general and IELTS English; kids and adults; beginners and advanced.

I'm a New Zealander who has been travelling the world for the last 20 years, living in the UK, Australia, Vietnam and France, but I have now returned home to live in NZ and raise my 2 boys in the South Pacific sunshine!

I taught English for 3 years in Hanoi, Vietnam and for 1 year in Paris, France. In the UK, I worked in Marketing and did various copywriting and editing assignments: websites, promotional material, blogs, and professional documents. I have been teaching online for almost 4 years and teaching, writing and people are my passions.

I am a very relaxed person who is interested in the different lives of people around the world. I love outdoor and simple living, trail running, business brainstorming, meditation, transformational and alternative ideas and philosophy.

I can help with grammar, expression, fluency and correcting those persistent errors. I love grammar - but also a really good chat - so I can help with both. Anyone can speak another language - you just need to have the right motivation and to be brave enough to try!! Let's go!
