Ellie specialises in Business English but also enjoys teaching IELTS and general English.

Hi, I’m Ellie! I am a CELTA-qualified EFL tutor with a degree in English Literature from Oxford University. I have been teaching English for 5 years and I get a lot of satisfaction from seeing the progress my students make. I love the fact that my job enables me to meet interesting people from all over the world.

I specialise in teaching Business English, but I also teach General English, English for Academic Purposes and exam preparation courses. Before becoming an English teacher, I spent 15 years working in the advertising and market research industries, so I have lots of experience of real-life business situations. I make my lessons interactive and engaging, using real-life videos and articles, games and role play exercises. As well as teaching face-to-face, I also enjoy teaching online, and online lessons can be a great way of fitting English lessons into your busy schedule.
