« I worked alongside Lindy and sat in on many of her classes as she showed me the ropes for teaching English as a second language. Lindy is a knowledgable and compassionate teacher and it’s clear from lesson one that she has a lot of experience to draw from. I’d recommend Lindy to anyone wanting to learn conversational English or English as a second language, or even native English speakers wanting to gain a firmer command over the language. »

EFL teacher with more than 7 years experience offering online English lessons

Methodology

When looking at EFL it is important to note that each student will have their own strengths and weaknesses. Some will be good at reading, but bad at writing for example. So step one for me is to assess where you will need the most help. I would do this, by chatting with you, asking you to write something for me and reading something as well. Once I have established where you will need the most help, I will tailor my material to focus on that area a little more than the other areas. In EFL it is important for you to feel comfortable with your teacher so that if you make mistakes you don't feel shy about it. That is always my number one aim.

Background

I am an EFL teacher who taught English in Oman for 7 years and worked in communications for 4 years in South Africa before that. I have taught so many different students over the years. Most of my students have been adults or college/university students. I have also taught children from as young as 6 years old. I have taught everything from level 1 to Advanced in General English. Business English, where I would go to companies and teach English specifically for their field or industry as well as many soft skills such as communications, business and report writing etc. I have also taught many IELTS preparation classes. Most classes have been in groups, but I have also taught quite a few private classes where students have asked for me specifically.

I worked alongside Lindy and sat in on many of her classes as she showed me the ropes for teaching English as a second language. Lindy is a knowledgable and compassionate teacher and it’s clear from lesson one that she has a lot of experience to draw from.

I’d recommend Lindy to anyone wanting to learn conversational English or English as a second language, or even native English speakers wanting to gain a firmer command over the language.

Lindy was one of my teachers. I have enjoyed the learning experience with her. She was always giving a space for the student to participate and chance to improve themselves. Linda is a creative teacher, you will find new ways of adding to your English in her class.

She was my teacher when I was studying in Modern Gulf Institute.. I can say easily that she was one ot my best teachers ever beacuse of her ability to explain and work hardly to improve your English language especially and she also take care to give the best ways to improve you and gives a support.

I believe that it is the successful teacher who makes friends with his students and this is what I found with Miss Lindy. She was not only a teacher but a friend and mother.

You can count on her even after you graduate from classes to help you in working life.

For the 8 years i've known Lindy as a teacher, she has always put students first. She's not there to point students at books, she's there for them, and so often gets requested to continue once a student has experienced her comforting style of guidance. She's a born teacher with excellent social skills and impossible patience that her students will appreciate.
