About Philippa

Hello! I’m Philippa, your English tutor with 5 years international English teaching experience based in Woking, England. Over the last 5 years I have worked with students of all ages and across all levels in Japan, Italy, Australia and the UK.

My experience has been enriched by high level tuition and training at universities, leading language schools, high schools, summer schools and in businesses around the world.

My lessons are structured and focused yet light-hearted and enjoyable and I strive to motivate and inspire my students to grow in confidence and ambition day by day.

Availability: Sunday - Thursday

Tutoring Experience:

As well as teaching General English and providing in-house and private Business English tuition, I am a qualified KET and PET Cambridge Speaking Examiner. I have extensive experience teaching both Cambridge and Trinity Exams and also in providing English for Academic Purposes to high school, undergraduate and postgraduate students.

My EAP specialisation includes the development and delivery of preparatory courses for the increasingly important IELTS Certification. For the last two years I have been teaching IELTS students in pursuit of levels 5 and above, both privately and at a British Council accredited language school in the UK.

Without exception, every student who has completed one of my courses has achieved, if not surpassed, his or her target band or grade. In 2013, I was also contracted by a private corporation in Japan to provide university language training.

Further to this appointment, I returned in 2014 as a Senior Instructor to prepare IELTS lesson plans, course material and teacher’s resources for the corporation’s professors to use as a syllabus at several of Japan’s leading universities.

My Testimonials
Name of the person who provided this testimonial: S
Hi Philippa ! I have been so lucky to find you as an IELTS teacher! You helped me a lot to achieve 6.5 in IELTS in such a short time! Thanks to you I improved not only my general English, but also my academic language. You were so clear in your explanations. I believe that without your lessons I wouldn't be able to reach this result. I was so depressed when I started the lessons, because I felt that this score was an ideal goal, but thanks to your accuracy in your work I've proved that nothing is impossible! I would recommend you to all the students who want to improve their general English and need to get an IELTS exam. Thanks a lot for everything Salvatore, Sicily
