Hi, my name is Abbie and I’ve been an English teacher for nearly ten years. I want to help you get better at learning English.
My lesson are for you if you are moving to an English speaking country, and want to improve your spoken English fast. Or if you are a mother or father in an English speaking country who needs to speak to teachers, doctors and make friends in English.
My specialized lessons are tailored to people who are going to live, work or study in an English speaking country. If you need English for daily life please contact me. Some topics we can cover are:
Going to the doctors
Speaking with teachers
Going to the salon
Problems with the house
I’m also passionate about helping students get better at learning English. I can help you set goals, and achieve your main aims in learning English.
I have about ten years experience teaching English to people from over 40 different countries. I have a CELTA and Master’s in Teaching English as a Foreign Language.
I’m British, but I live in Japan with my husband and our daughter. I understand what it’s like to live abroad, so I can help you get more confident speaking in English.
