I offer individual, friendly, professional classes of 60 or 90 minutes in duration which will focus on the skills you need to improve your English: writing, speaking, listening, reading, grammar, and vocabulary.
I specialise in preparing students for academic and general exams such as IELTS or the Cambridge FCE and CAE exams, but am also able to help people who need English in their everyday life, at any level.
Materials are provided, although I am happy to cater to any specific needs you may have in this regard.
Though I currently specialise in classes for adults of all levels, I worked with children of all ages for over 20 years and can cater for their specific needs.
I have been teaching ESL for 30 years and, as well as a CELTA certificate, I also hold a BA in English Literature and Linguistics, an MA in English Literature and Cultural Studies, and I am currently writing my doctoral thesis in English at the University of Sydney.
My own lifelong experience as a language learner (I speak Spanish, Catalan, French, and Italian) has helped me develop a deep understanding of what it is like to be a student of a foreign language. Coupled with 30 years of experience as an ESL teacher, this means that I am able to offer a transformative learning experience which caters to your real language needs rather than focusing on a particular curriculum.
I am highly professional but also engage on a personal level with my students to build trust and self-confidence as they acquire the many skills associated with an effective learner. I prefer to think of teaching in terms of guidance rather than obligation and will always aim to help you become an autonomous learner.
Lisa was my first English teacher in Australia. Her passion for teaching and the way she shares her knowledge is just unreal! I fell in love with her classes. Every single day I was improving and getting closer to my achievements. She is talented and unique. I highly recommend Lisa as the best English teacher that anyone could have!!!
I had many English teachers in my life and I can surely say that Lisa is the best one I have ever had. She has been my teacher for six months and she is absolutely super clear, competent, organized, creative, cultured and fun! And, if needed, her beautiful smile will always cheer you up! Thank you Lisa!
Lisa is, by far, the best English teacher I have ever had. I met her after 5 months living in Australia and I can say that it was not until I found her that my English improved. Not only will she give you the best tips to pass the official exams but she will also make you understand grammar with the best examples, since she speaks many other languages and she can identify your way of thinking. No doubt she is the best!
I’ve known Lisa as an online and face-to-face teacher. In both scenarios she has proved to be an amazing teacher. Full of resources, adaptable, experienced are some of the qualities that make her an outstanding professional. Being able not only to identify your flaws but also their background, she specializes in giving lessons and correcting mistakes from their root.
Every time I meet with her my English improves greatly and I recommend that experience to everybody looking for a solid progress in their process of learning English.
Lisa is an excellent English teacher. Her teaching methods are great. Very clear and concise. Doesn’t waste your time explaining meaningless background information and always lectures with the intent to help you understand the material. Her great knowledge of English grammar helped me to improve my writing and reading skills allowing me to obtain a better score for my English proficiency test. She’s by far the best English tutor that I’ve had.
I had the opportunity to be with Lisa-Jane in various Cambridge preparation courses and I must say that her willingness to teach, knowledge, expertise and human attitude allowed me to fully enhance my language skills in all aspects of grammar, reading, writing and speaking. No doubt, she will give her best for helping to improve the English level of many more people.
