THE TEACHER :

A former English, French and literature teacher at a prestigious secondary school, I’ve been teaching both languages for over 15 years. My qualifications and experience mean I’m an efficient teacher whose pupils have all shown substantial progress in as little as three to six months’ time.

I’m a female linguist and literature lover, dedicated, responsible and organized. I teach children and adults, for school and exams (AL, AS, CE 13+, DALF, DELF, GCSE / IGCSE, HKCEE, HKDSE, IB, IELTS, SAT, TOEFL, etc) or work. I’ve been teaching again in Hong Kong the past few years, mainly students at top schools:

– international (CNDIS, CIS, FIS, GSIS, HKIS, IS, KGV, SIS, WIS, etc)
– local (King’s, Marymount, St Joseph’s, St. Paul’s, Wah Yan, DBS, DGS, La Salle, Maryknoll, etc) and
– schools overseas (Cheltenham, Eton, Sevenoaks, Tonbridge, Winchester, Wycombe Abbey, etc)

After studying with me for three to six months, many of my pupils wrote essays that came top in their class or even year. I’m able to follow the progress of each and every one of my pupils as I’ll accept up to only eight.

I’m a permanent resident in Hong Kong. Dedication and continuity assured.
