Specialist in IELTS Preparation With Eight Years Experience Teaching English as a Foreign Language.
- The King's School Canterbury
- University of Edinburgh
After graduating from Edinburgh University, I worked in a media agency for ten years across such clients as Apple, Virgin and Estee Lauder. In 2008 I decided to take a career break which lead me to teaching. I've enjoyed it so much I never looked back!
Four years ago, I started working with the Pronunciation Studio who trained me in phonemics and accent reduction. Since then I have worked with business clients in blue chip companies to help them communicate more clearly and confidently to their clients and colleagues.
IELTS preparation is a speciality of mine. Also, what used to be the standard requirement of around 6.5 has crept up over the last few years to 7 or even 7.5 as the top universities increasingly demand excellence from their applicants. Preparation is absolutely vital and I have achieved excellent results from those prepared to work hard.
In my spare time I am a stand-up comedian and have performed all over the UK, including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
