Hi, my name is Lorraine. I am a native English speaker and I have been teaching English since 2010. I have qualifications in teaching both business and general English. These include the CELTA and Diploma in Teaching Business English. I am currently studying for a BA in English Language and Literature, expected in 2020.


I have a lot of experience in teaching students who wish to improve their speaking skills, prepare for an English exam or want to feel more confident speaking English with international colleagues and business partners. I explain the rules behind any corrections I give and model correct use of language in my clear, British accent.


I believe the most effective way for students to learn English is to enjoy their English lessons and feel inspired to improve. I have lived in several countries and I have studied German for 3 years, so I know what it’s like to be a language learner. I have taught students online from a wide range of countries, including Japan, Colombia, Germany and Saudi Arabia, to name a few.
