Hi, I'm Gill. I've been teaching English for more than 13 years and I've lived and taught in 6 different countries - France, Russia, Mexico, Ukraine, South Africa and Angola, I've also been teaching online for more than 7 years. My main area of experience is in exams, particularly IELTS, CAE and FCE, I have experience as an examiner for these exams and I know the exam inside out! I can help you with tips and strategies for speaking tests, practice speaking tests as well as help with other parts of the exam.
I've recently been working as the Assistant Director of Studies at International House, Cape Town but now I live between Paris and Cape Town and I teach online.
I like to think that my lessons are enjoyable and engaging, having learnt many languages has made me very aware of how easily one can be demotivated so I put a lot of importance into making lessons challenging and rewarding . I work hand in hand with students to design lessons to their liking and needs, so lessons are always student centered. Living and working in many different countries and having had experience of learning Spanish, French, Russian and Portuguese has given me a lot of understanding of my students and their particular difficulties and helps me adapt my lessons to the specific needs of the student.
