Fiona was my course tutor for my cert-TESOL in 2017. She was always approachable, and her teaching enabled me to excel in each area she instructed me in. She decoded grammar and technical jargon for me so that it was second nature - I ended up getting 93% for the grammar exam! She even taught us Irish as part of our unknown foreign language unit, and it was one of my favourite parts of the course because I had so much fun.
The best part about being taught by Fiona is that you leave each session empowered. I felt like she helped me identify, and continue improving, my natural strengths, while helping me overcome weaknesses- and framing them so I could recognise similar mistakes in my students. She always gave me practical advice to apply to the next assessment. I felt I truly learned from my errors with her!
Fiona bolstered my teaching confidence and abilities, and she taught me how to teach without sacrificing my personality or personal approach. Her advice was invaluable, and enabled me to walk confidently into my first ESL job. The proof is in the pudding - I got a raise after one month of working there! - Nicole Rochat, South Africa
I really enjoyed having Fiona as a teacher. She gives clear and honest feedback and I always felt I could ask her questions whenever I wanted to.
