I have been teaching English online since February 2012. I specialize in speaking and writing practice for IELTS.

I have a BA Hons in Economics and an MSc in Computing Science. I also have a university certificate in Health and Social Care. I am a fully qualified to teach English to speakers of other languages, with a Cert. EDI (CELTA equivalent).

I am a native speaker with an English accent. My spoken voice is very clear, and I do not have a regional accent. Please watch my video introduction where you will be able to hear a sample of my voice.

As well as being an English tutor, I also work in Health and Social Care as an advocate for people with mental-health problems. In my job, I communicate with doctors, nurses, and outside agencies, with a view to making sure that the patients' wishes are listened to.

I also write as a hobby and have had articles and poems published in professional journals.

If you want to prepare for the IELTS speaking test, we will be using exam questions from recent students in China. I also teach conversation lessons based on current affairs from the website BreakingNewsEnglish.com and conversation lessons for teenagers who are at an intermediate level.

I am a highly patient teacher with a gentle and kind teaching style. I have some very positive feedback from my students on my website at: letstalkielts.com

Finally, I understand the needs of language learners because I am myself a student of Mandarin Chinese.
