My name is Phillippa and I am from the South-East of England. I am an Oxford University graduate with 13 years of tutoring experience. I began teaching English in Taiwan, where I lived for over three years. There I taught in all kinds of settings including cram schools, adult language centres, businesses, and privately. I also spent two years as Head of English at an elementary and junior high school, where I set up an English programme entirely from scratch. Now I’m back in the UK, I teach exclusively online to students from all around the world.
I have taught all aspects of EFL to students of every age and ability from kindergarten through to postgraduate students and other adults. As well as helping with general English skills, I can help you prepare for your English proficiency test (IELTS, TOEFL, Cambridge YLE, etc.), or teach you how to communicate in Academic, Business, or Conversational English.
I deliver personalised lessons that are different for every student. Every lesson, I will consult with you and I will regularly evaluate your level so that I only teach you what you need/want to learn. Throughout my many years of teaching, I have developed innovative techniques and exercises that guarantee improvement, even in difficult areas like grammar and pronunciation (where textbooks often fail). What’s more, I will provide you with study tips and techniques in addition to delivering lessons that are well-structured with regular reviews of what we are learning. This ensures that you actually remember what we learn in class. So you’ll improve in no time!
