About Me

I'm Lisa, a native British English speaker, and I have been teaching for 20 years. I have completed a Level 5 TEFL certificate fully accredited by TQUK and regulated via the British government.

You will be offered a placement level assessment and a learning plan to match your personal targets helping to fill those . This will be linked to you as soon as you book a trial appointment.

I am specialist courses in Teaching Advanced Grammar, IELTS Preparation, Business English, Young Learners, Teaching with Technology and Teaching English Online.

Please send me a message to discuss my rates as they are adapted to the type of teaching required.

If you don't see a timeslot for a trial or assessment, ask me because I can often be flexible to your needs. 30 minute sessions can be arranged.

I am as comfortable with a complete beginner as I am with a large conference with a room of 50 or more Business English learners at intermediate level!

I have taught over 3000 classes online and would love the opportunity to help you improve and develop your skills further.

I am professional yet friendly, patient, and passionate about helping people achieve their goals and improve their English.

I will work with you to prepare a course to suit YOUR individual needs to improve your English with conversation skills, exam preparation, Business English, and help you develop general skills to improve your writing, grammar, and pronunciation.

I studied English & education at university and am a qualified teacher. I am also qualified to support people with dyslexia. Before I fell in love with teaching English, I had a career in the IT industry.

I love meeting new people and experiencing different cultures and lived in Germany for three years. I understand the challenges that come with learning a new language, and with a Polish grandfather, an Indian uncle and a Chinese sister, my family is indeed multicultural!

I’m really excited about meeting you and helping you to grow in confidence. Learning to speak English is fun, and your English will improve quickly; you will be able to use English for business or pleasure!

I enjoy learning, crafts, reading, creative writing and playing the ukulele.

*** Course Material ***
Authentic English materials for use in real life. I prepare and use my own lessons and materials combined with the official Skills for Life ESOL curriculum to suit the individual learners' needs, goals and level and am constantly evaluating and developing teaching and learning materials.

I use the CEFR for assessing competencies and will supply you with a personalised learning and development plan.
