My name is Lynne and I come from Scotland. I have been an English language teacher for more than thirty years both in the UK and abroad. Most of my teaching experience has been with Arabic speakers in the UAE, Egypt, Syria and Lebanon as well as with Spanish speakers in Spain. I have also taught multi-national classes in the UK.
I have a Masters degree in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) while my original degree is a Masters in Spanish Studies.
I have experience teaching at tertiary level to adults, as well as to young adults and children.
I was an IELTS examiner for over 12 years and have taught IELTS preparation courses to both advanced and elementary level speakers of English. I have a keen interest in languages and language learning.
I am also skilled at editing and have worked with undergraduate and graduate students in helping them to improve their written academic style.
As a teacher I enjoy motivating others to succeed and I endeavor to adapt my teaching style and methods to suit the needs of individual students and their learning goals.
