« Excellent! Just recently we contacted Joanna to see if she would be interested in teaching some of our EFL groups. From day one, Joanna was very professional and enthusiastic, nothing was too much to ask even when at times we had to changed lessons and plans at the last minute. She was very quickly able to build great rapport with students and colleagues alike, facilitating the fluidity of the learning environment. I would 100% recommend Joanna. »

I'm a RSA/Cambridge qualified ESOL and EFL teacher, and previous IELTS examiner, with 20+ years experience teaching English to adults and children. Slough / Windsor / Heathrow area.

Methodology

I teach English/ESOL/EFL to adults and children, and can help with preparation for the IELTS exam.

My lessons are interactive and fun, and will be tailored to your individual level and needs. I love to teach, and will challenge you to achieve your best!

I hope to make English as easy and enjoyable as possible for you. I want to help you grow in confidence in using English!

I am friendly, kind and enthusiastic, and look forward to teaching you!

ADULT LESSONS
I will help you improve your English. I offer help with vocabulary, grammar, speaking, listening, writing and reading skills. I also offer IELTS preparation.

CHILD LESSONS
I teach ESOL / EFL to children and can help your child with phonics, reading, writing, speaking, listening, spelling, grammar and vocabulary.

I have four children, and know that each child has unique needs and learning styles. With your input, I will tailor lessons to your child's individual requirements. I believe that motivation is important to effective learning, and use a system of rewards to help your child succeed. I use multi-sensory activities to aid learning.

FREE TRIAL LESSON
I offer a free 30 minute trial lesson to help you decide if you want continue lessons.

DISCOUNTED LESSONS
Sign up for lessons with a friend, or a group of friends, and save money! Contact me for details. (Students must be at roughly the same level of English to receive group lessons.)

TRAVEL
I charge £5 extra per session if I travel to you, or meet you somewhere other than my home. This is to cover travel time/costs. (I travel 5 miles max from my home.)

Experience

I am a qualified English / ESOL / EFL teacher (CTEFLA) and have 20+ years of varied teaching experience, having taught in language schools, an international school, a university, Sunday school, homeschool, and one-on-one. I have taught adults and children (and even my own four children)!

I use a wide variety of teaching materials, as well as developing my own, and strive to make learning English an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

I also trained, qualified and worked as an IELTS examiner for several years, so am able to give you expert advice in doing well in the IELTS examination.

My family and I have lived in several countries. I have first hand experience of learning languages, of helping my children learn languages, and the struggles and frustrations that come with that. I want to make learning English as easy as possible for you!

I have known Joanna for 5 years and worked with her for several years in a Library in an international school where she put a lot of good structures into place.
She is a gentle and encouraging person who strives to enable people to do their best, she treats people as individuals and therefore would strive to enable her students to make the best of their individual abilities.
I have seen her working with her own children and others to encourage them to reach their full potential.
She also a talented writer and a very focussed person with a lot of integrity.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Joanna as a trustworthy person who would be a great tutor.

I first met Joanna in Istanbul, Turkey, where we lived with our families. This was in 2011. We quickly developed a friendship, and whenever my non native English speaking children (we are Swedes) met Joanna, she was very kind and empathic, and communicated on a level which they could understand.
Since Joanna has herself lived abroad, she understands how challenging a (new) language can be.
With Joanna as a teacher, you'll have a fun, warm, friendly, and creative tutor - you won't be disappointed!

Joanna C. is an most amazing lady I was blessed to have in my life! We've met in Bosnia(ex Jugoslavia) during her stay with her family. Their stay wasn't just ordinary stay. Joanna, and her family sacrificed THEIR HAPPY LIFE and moved to Bosnia to help out to those affected by a war in my country. She was and still is my Angel, an Angel that I don't think I would of survive without!
I was working for the family as an nanny for 2 years. At the time she had 3 kids all three under age of 5 but even so having me she just couldn't be away from them for to long. She just impressed me in many ways! People say nobody is perfect, Joanna is and I would recommend her from the bottom of my hearth.

I am more than happy to provide a reference for Joanna. She has an enthusiastic and professional approach to her work and is a pleasant and co-operative colleague.

In the classroom, Joanna’s presentation and staging of the material was well thought through, and the way in which she elicited information from her students was clearly informed by considerable language awareness and a sound understanding of modern EFL methodology. I was impressed with the way she encouraged her class to co-operate in language projects and at the same time attend to individual need where it was required. She has a very pleasant manner and was clearly well liked by her students.

Joanna also made a considerable contribution to our ‘End of Course Show’ which was staged for our students’ host families. She had sole responsibility for coaching a drama and mime group whose sketches provided one of the highlights of the evening.
