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. I've recently been working as the Assistant Director of Studies at International House, Cape Town but now I live between Paris, Senegal and Cape Town and I teach online.
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 and writing as well as help with other parts of the exam.
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 and usually invole a lot of speaking. 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 their specific needs.
