My name is Lucy and I have been teaching English since 2003 when I received my CELTA. I have worked with many ages, levels and cultures and specialise in students who are intermediate level and above. I specialise in IELTS, fluency, business, advanced and academic English.
If you really want to work with me and I am unavailable at the time or day you want- please contact me anyway as I do have some flexibility in my timetable.
I have worked at two British Universities preparing students for further education and examinations and have worked in-company with advanced and business students. I have worked as a IELTS and TEOFL examiner and helped students who are sitting their UK citizenship exams as well as working one to one online. I have lived and worked in Spain and Mexico and speak pretty good Spanish.
Learning a language formally can be easy, using it in everyday situations is harder.
Have you been to English lessons and feel you understand the rules and grammar, yet find it difficult to...
* approach someone for a chat
* ask a question in a conference call
* write a letter or an email
* put forward your point in a discussion
... or just simply ask for directions?
My classes will help you to use what you already know to become confident using English in a variety of situations.
Including informal chats, business meetings, writing reports, academic papers, letters and CV's, watching a lecture, attending a conference, passing exams and more.
I love teaching and have helped hundreds of students move into further education, achieve UK citizenship, use English everyday in business and commerce and dramatically improve their English ability.
I will give you feedback at the end of each lesson and we will work towards some goals over time.
