About Me

Hello! I'm Rachael, a professional, British EFL teacher with 20 years' experience as a specialist in English as a Foreign Language and English for Speakers of Other Languages. I have taught all ages from 3 to 70, lots of different nationalities, and all levels (from Absolute Beginner to Proficiency) in the Czech Republic, Spain and here in England.
I am happy to help you with grammar, vocabulary, accuracy, reading, writing, speaking, fluency, pronunciation, listening, exam preparation or functional English. Book a trial lesson with me so I can design a lesson specifically suited to your individual language needs. I'm fluent in Czech, and have studied French, German and Spanish, so I know exactly how it feels to be a language learner.
I come from Newcastle upon Tyne, so my vowel sounds are northern English, but all my students find me easy to understand. Just click on the video to hear my voice!
