Video intro


If you watched either video, which I filmed back in 2018, please note that since then I have helped candidates prepare for the Occupational English Test (OET Medicine, OET Nursing) and for Cambridge Proficiency in English (level C2 – expert used) as well. Up to now, all the candidates whom I helped prepare for OET Medicine and for IELTS Academic succeeded in achieving their desired scores in one exam sitting.

My style of teaching is a direct reflection of my deep commitment to each learner and to quality (language) education in general. I love to inspire and to witness “a-ha moments” that trigger growth and transformation. Also, I like to keep up to date with the latest research and developments in my field.

I am comfortable teaching individuals, small groups, and large groups in a variety of face-to-face, online or blended formats.

My strengths are:

  • teaching English for Specific Purposes, such as
    • academic: studying or teaching in English at university, scholarship applications
    • scientific: writing and presenting scientific papers in English, writing research grant applications
    • professional: the OET exams, medical terminology and communication, medical job interviews
    • general: preparation for IELTS (Academic), CPE, CAE, FCE exams

I do these by:

    • striving to be my best authentic self
    • embracing learner-centeredness
    • integrating language and content
    • using resources creatively and purposefully
    • engaging in constructive feedback and formative assessment
    • fostering emotional safety, the free flow of creativity, and a healthy dose of humor.


As of October 2021, my fees start at 25 Euro/hour for one-to-one collaborations and can vary depending on the stakes, complexity, customization, and duration of the session/course. I prepare beforehand, I give my best, I cherish our time together, and I expect the same from you. I always begin with a diagnostic discussion before making a financial proposition and reaching an agreement.

The occupational code under which I am authorized to teach is CAEN 8559.
