We offer tailor-made courses to assist those who need the language skills and knowledge required for academic courses in the UK or abroad.
In the UK this may involve preparing individuals for SATs or Common Entrance at the 11+
and 13+ age groups. Support and guidance can be given at IGCSE and GCSE level (16+ age group) where Ann is experienced at using the syllabus content to improve knowledge of English language as well as subject specific topics.
Ann uses Content and
Language Intergrated Learning (CLIL) to support those studying GCE A Levels and the International Baccalaureate (18+ age group). This is particularly relevent for those who are used to rote learning. Her approach helps to prepare them to be independent learners
and thinkers who can appreciate and understand concepts, procedures, skills and language enabling them to work confidently alone, in groups and in teams.
Ann's approach to learning is very much based on integration, linking and understanding. This enables
learners to become familiar with, motivated by and engaged in the subject being studied. English is now considered as a core skill and is essential to any curriculum programme. For many people, a good level of competence in English is necessary before
they can develop their careers.
Testimonial from Mian (Hong Kong) - July 2014
"The mediocre teacher tells;
The good teacher explains;
The superior teacher demonstrates:
The great teacher inspires" (William Arthur Ward)
Ann - you are a great teacher. Thank you for guiding
me in the right direction"
