Successful communication is vital. What we say and what others think we are saying are often two different things – and that’s just speaking one language. So when you have to communicate in your second or third language things can get really complicated.
I can help you achieve your English language goals, be they talking to a neighbour or your workmates or passing an IELTS exam.
I’m a highly qualified and very experienced English language teacher with industry experience in NZ and overseas. I’ve taught all ages and levels and have a thorough understanding of the diversity of learning styles, expectations, fears, challenges and achievements that all students bring to a class.
I live in New Plymouth with my family and love the opportunities this province offers. I try to travel as much as I can and have a keen interest in the arts. Most of all, I’m passionate about teaching. Seeing my students succeed is a great motivator and gives me immense satisfaction.
â Thank you so much Phillipa. I’ve just got my IELTS score and my reading score jumped from a 5.5 last month to 7. (Wow, hard to believe! ). I learnt and applied your strategies. â
â Phillipa is an outstanding English teacher. She is very dedicated to her work, extremely efficient and has an amazing ability to connect with her students. I attended a work-related course taught by Phillipa and I found her lessons and materials very helpful. Her years of experience in teaching were evident as she was able to tailor her teaching to the individual levels of English language proficiency we were at. I still find myself consulting her today on proofreading issues in cover letters and applications. As such, I can highly recommend Phillipa as an English language teacher at every level! â
