About Me

Hello! 😊

Hi, I’m Beki from the UK. I’m a qualified teacher who has been educating both adults and children since 2013.

I am passionate about helping people from all over the world change their lives through English and life skills.

Learning English is one of the fundamental skills that will enable you to move into the next chapter of your life and I am so grateful to be part of your journey!

I’m a naturally bubbly and friendly person, so you’ll find it really easy to get along with me and feel comfortable in lessons to speak English.

When I’m not teaching, you’ll find me traveling the world, at wakeboarding, zumba or the gym, painting, crafting or eating lots of cheese and wine!

I have lived in 4 different countries and currently live in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

I’m really looking forward to getting to know you!

✔️ I am a qualified Native teacher with 8 years experience, I have PGCE in School Teaching & 120 hour TESOL certificate plus I have a IELTS Teaching Certificate.

I’m qualified to teach the following topics to Adult English students:
✔️ IELTS Exam Preparation
✔️ Everyday English Conversation
✔️ Kids English
✔️ Job Interview Preparation & Resume help
✔️ Moving to the UK for Job or Studying
✔️ Custom Learning Plans

✔️ I have lots of experience teaching children aged 4 upwards both in person & online. I use Let's Go Textbooks & workbooks (for hw) and have a range of audio, singing, games, grammar, stories and much more to keep them engaged in lessons.

⚡ I recommend 30 minute lessons for learners aged 10 and below, please message me for 30 minute lesson prices!

If you have any questions, send me a message and I look forward to teaching you soon!
