Hi Everyone, my name is Jo and I am a patient, professional and friendly English / ESL Teacher.  I am also an English native speaker.

I grew up in Sydney, Australia and obtained a Bachelor of Science (Psychology) from the University of New South Wales where I achieved First Class Honours in the field of Educational Psychology in 2002.

In Australia, I worked for six years teaching language, cognitive and social skills to children with autism and, in 2006, I moved to London and I worked for four years for The British Royal Family.  After that, I obtained a Teaching English as a Foreign Language (T.E.F.L.) certification with INTESOL Worldwide and  I am now a qualified teacher of English as a second or foreign language.

If you are interested in my lessons, you are welcome to sign-up for a free 15-minute demonstration class.

Hi there!  My name is Mary Rose.  I am a Canadian living in Greece, where I have been teaching English for over 20 years in language schools, at university and as a private tutor to students of all ages, levels and backgrounds.  I have always loved language and received my BA in English with Great Distinction from McGill University in Montreal.  Before that, my natural desire to help people had led me to obtain a diploma in Community Services at Centennial College in Toronto.  I worked in a variety of settings before finding my niche in teaching.

I can help you improve your spoken and written English for social, academic or business purposes, and help you prepare for all major exams, including Cambridge and Michigan Proficiency, TOEFL and IELTS.  My students say that, apart from my expertise, I also bring warmth, humour and enthusiasm to all my lessons: learning should be fun!  I am thrilled to be on Jo’s team and look forward to getting to know you in a free demonstration lesson.
