I'm Lisa, a native British English speaker and have been teaching for 20 years. I have completed a Level 5 TEFL certificate which is fully accredited by TQUK and regulated via the British government.
I have completed specialist courses in Teaching IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC Exams, Business English, Young Learners, Teaching with Technology and Teaching English Online.
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!
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 to achieve their goals and improve their English.
I will work with you to prepare a course to suit YOUR individual needs and can help with conversation skills, exam preparation, Business English, and help you to 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!
In my free time, I enjoy learning, crafts, reading, creative writing and playing the ukulele.
** Policy **
If you are unable to attend a lesson please let me know as soon as possible and we can reschedule. Otherwise, the following policy applies:
1. If the student is ABSENT from the class for over 15 minutes, I will automatically mark it as a complete lesson and the student will lose their right to a refund.
2. If the student cancels a class more than 4 times, they will need to message me before booking another lesson. I will do my best to accommodate them as I understand emergencies can happen but I have limited availability and would prefer to leave the available slots for those who are really interested in learning English.
3. The student has a right to cancel any lesson with a 100% refund if at least 12 hours notice is given before the lesson start time.
4. If the student cancels less than 12 hours before the lesson start time they will receive a 50% refund.
*** Course Material ***
Authentic English materials for use in real life. I prepare and use my own lessons and materials in combination 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.
