Interest topicReadingArtMedical & Healthcare
I am a professional TESOL qualified English teacher from the UK with 11 years of classroom experience and more than 8 years of online teaching experience. I enjoy working in all aspects of English, including exam preparation (IELTS and CAMBRIDGE EXAMS) for students of all levels. I'm originally from Reading in the southeast of England but have been living in Italy for several years with my husband and two sons. I live in a beautiful little town in the centre of the country called Rieti which is only 60 km from Rome. I enjoy many things but most of all blue skies and sunny days, walking in the mountains, reading and of course, Netflix:)

I've had 37 lessons with Clair. She has been super helpful and supportive. I've learned a lot and built a lot of confidence in speaking English. She is the teacher you can trust. That is, if you let her know what you'd like to learn, you'll get exactly what helps you the most. Last but not least, lessons are fun and I always enjoy my lessons with Clair. I appreciate every lesson. Thank you Clair.

I've had over 80 lessons with Clair so far and she's an amazing teacher. Very patient, supportive and experienced. Clair is able to answer event the most complicated grammar questions when discussing advanced language structures. We never run out of topics to talk about and practice English with. Clair moves smoothly from one topic to another and I always feel challenged so the lessons never get boring. During the course of our lessons I've learnt multiple new structures and now when I come across unfamiliar expression, collocation or an idiom it's much easier for me to identify and learn it. Clair is also flexible when it comes to selection of topics but at the same time she's able to pinpoint weak spots and offer focusing on them when appropriate. Clair is a brilliant teacher and I can only speak highly of her. Highly recommended!

I always enjoy my lessons with Clair. Sometimes we just talk about everything that matters to both us, sometimes we dive into a topic prepared by Clair for the lesson. Our lessons are always full of fun but at the same time they are effective. Clair does a great job, and I highly recommend everybody, who’s looking for a good English teacher, try lessons with her.

Nonetheless it was my first class, I seem Clair provides a structured class. As I am looking to enhance my Speaking and Listening skills to get a better score in IELTS General, she has the best tools.
