A mature, experienced and professional academic language teacher with a extensive background in the Cambridge ESOL exams (IELTS, FCE, CAE, CPE). I also have experience of EAP/ESP (English for Academic/Specific Purposes) and running language schools.

I'm a mature, experienced and professional teacher whose been teaching now for almost 12 years extensively in Asia and also a few countries in Europe, classes ranging from 3 years old to those over 60, and subjects including general and academic language, as well as English for specific purposes such as business, science, marketing and even design. If you'd like to know more about my teaching background I'm more than happy to pass on my CV so that you can see more clearly what I've done and where.
My areas of specialty are:

English language for all the major Cambridge ESOL examinations:

- KET (Key English Test)
- PET (Preliminary English Test)
- FCE (First Certificate in English)

- General English (EFL/ESL) for students wishing to improve their level (CEFR) - from A1 through to C2. Focusing on all areas of language from pronunciation to writing.

...and along with this, I also have a very high success rate helping students with:

- UCAS application statements
- Personal statements for Master and PhD admissions.
- Scholarship applications

I can also offer professional proofreading for academic, science and business based papers.


Aimed at: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.
Online teaching offered


The first class for any purpose is free and lasts for 1 hr 30 mins. This is the most important time as it gives the student (or students) a chance to make sure they are comfortable with the classes. It also allows me to assess language ability within all the areas, talk about the study habits you have, make suggestions. and allow you to ask any questions. More importantly it will also help me to advise how many classes you will most likely to need in order to achieve your goal.

- £20.00/hour for general English classes
- up to £35.00 for more specific language areas such for business and sciences as the resources I provide will be more.
- For proofreading, please contact me as there are two ways to charge, either based on words (for smaller projects) and per hour (for much larger projects).

The rates shown here are for one-to-one classes but for group classes, this price will be much lower. The price includes all the teaching materials you will need and also the opportunity to contact me out of class time with any questions or other advice you may need. If you need my help then I will do my best to provide it! Classes should always booked a week in advance if possible to allow me chance to prepare the materials specifically for your needs. Classes can be cancelled up to 2 hours before they are supposed to begin. If a cancellation is asked for after this point, it has to be on a case-by-case basis.

It's recommended to study for at least 2 sessions a week - which would be a minimum of 3 hours (each class: 1hr 30 mins). It is strongly recommended that classes are 2 hours long as the first 20-30 mins will be spent reviewing previously set homework and answering any questions you may have. Many of the students and classes I currently run are for 6 hours each week as this provides a nice balance between time with teacher and time away from the class to practise the lesson's objectives.
