About Me

Hello! I'm Rachael, a professional, British EFL teacher with over 25 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, academic English, business English or functional everyday English. Book a trial lesson, so I can design a course to deal with your specific language needs and priorities. I'm fluent in Czech, and have studied French, German, Latin and Spanish, so I know exactly how it feels to be a language learner.

Respect for equality and diversity is vital to me in my own life. I warmly welcome new learners of all abilities, no matter your:
• age,
• gender,
• race,
• nationality,
• faith,
• mental or physical ability,
• neurodiversity,
• sexual orientation
• or status.

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 (which I recorded 5 years ago) to hear my voice!
