*Our first class is free* (1 hour)


I am originally from Canada and a graduate of King’s College London (MA, 2016, pass with distinction). In addition, I have taught on several pre-sessional courses in the UK including for the past several years at the University of Bristol, and previously at Imperial College London and King’s College London, among others. I have a reputation for being a patient, intelligent, hard-working and a great motivator! I am especially well versed in the humanities, social sciences, journalism, and teaching. I am also a PowerPoint and Presentations specialist.

My classes are friendly and inclusive: All are welcome!


25-28 £ per hour, depending on the number of hours you are interested in.

Over the years I have worked with hundreds of international students at UK (British) universities during pre-sessional courses to help them achieve competency in all the academic skills so they can gain acceptance to undergraduate (BA) and graduate (MA) courses.  This includes students going on to study business, finance, economics, social sciences, law, nursing and medicine!

I myself have graduated from a Canadian (BA, Wilfrid Laurier University) and British university (MA, King’s College London, 2016, with distinction) and therefore personally understand the needs, pressures and requirements students face in order to graduate successfully!

I have also worked with many students privately (in London, UK) as an academic supervisor to guide them with their coursework and final dissertation.

From my home in Barcelona (Spain) I can develop a complete online course for you which will improve your academic writing, speaking, listening and reading skills.

This includes how to write according to Western academic standards, how to understand lectures, how to read academic articles and papers, as well as how to speak in group discussions and make presentations for an academic audience.

We can also work together (via Skype) on an hourly (or ad-hoc) basis to help you with specific skills, projects, coursework or other academic needs.

This can be in addition to my regular online English classes which focus on building fluency and confidence through discussions of real-world topics.

Contact me (email, Whatsapp, Facebook, or contact form) for a consultation today. I also offer a free Skype consultation to discuss your situation and meet each other personally.

Let’s make your dream come true together!

Let’s chat about your future!
