Expert ESL Tutor
I am a professional, TEFL and CELTA qualified EFL / ESL teacher with nine years experience in a broad range of teaching situations and curriculum, working in China for over two years (2011 – 2013), and then here in the UK until the present.
My particular expertise is providing highly effective preparation tuition and support for candidates taking the IELTS, OET (Occupational English Test) or Cambridge ESOL exams such as the B2 First for higher education entry, immigration and /or career opportunities. However, I also have extensive experience in teaching all aspects of general English for all levels and ages of speakers of other languages as well as business English and accent reduction.
I have previously been employed in a full-time role by a large recruitment company where I provided tuition and ‘mentoring’ to groups of nurses in India and the Philippines and also Spain and Italy. I was a member of a team charged with the goal of facilitating these candidates’ success in IELTS (achieving a minimum of band 7 in all four sub-tests) or OET to enable them to come work in the UK's NHS (National Health Service). This process was done through a busy weekly programme of scheduled one-to-one Skype sessions with up to 50 candidates per week and a series of scheduled, 1-2 hour group webinars with up to 100 attendees for which I personally produced many PPTs.
In September 2018, I personally planned and conducted an intensive, two-week IELTS course at the UK Excel College in Manchester for a group of 25 Chinese candidates, and between January and April, 2019 I repeated this at Oldham Hulme Grammar School with a group of Chinese six form students.
Additionally, since 2015, I have been employed by Manchester University Language Centre as an invigilator in their IELTS tests which are usually twice monthly.
My approach is to focus the candidates time entirely on learning or developing a particular approach and certain skills and techniques necessary for those areas of the test, specific sub-tests, where they require the most improvement and practice in order to achieve the required band score.
Over the years, I have amassed a large amount of excellent learning and practice resources of my own (some put together myself) which have proved very effective in instructing and training all my students, along with a host of practical tips to help them perform at their best whilst under examination conditions.
Feedback has consistently confirmed that I am a highly personable, focused and committed teacher with a facilitative and collaborative style that is very popular among learners. I have received many positive testimonials over the years some of which may be read on my professional website:
