Introduction

SpeaksEnglish

Hello. I'm Polly, a UK based, highly qualified and experienced teacher, trainer and international oral examiner. I have also published 'The Lesson Observation & Feedback Handbook' for senior teachers. I teach IELTS, teachers and how to quickly improve your communication skills so you feel confident and able in business and social places. I have top EFL qualifications and a background in training teachers and the language business in Poland, New Zealand and the UK. However, my first love is always working directly with motivated students and getting a kick out of them feeling their own progress.
