Frequently Asked Questions:

1. How do I start studying with you? The first step is to send us a message. First, we will work out what level of English you are and where you want to be! The questions I will ask you are: - What previous English study experience do you have? - If you are an IELTS student, what level do you need to attain? We will arrange a time to meet and discuss in detail what you need.

2. How much does it cost? I am highly experienced and offer a wide range of English educational services. My IELTS students achieve their band scores and the university students I coach achieve much higher grades through working with me. If you have any questions, please don't hestitate to give me a call. IELTS Preparation/ OET / ACADEMIC English / GENERAL English $58 per hour (this includes all marking and feedback) or a discounted package of 5 lessons for $260.00 *conditions apply

3. What is your experience as an ESL teacher? I am a native speaker and I've taught in Sydney's most reputable private English colleges for the past five years as both a teacher and head teacher. I also taught English in Hong Kong for one year. During my university studies, I privately tutored students from France and Lebanon. This was when I discovered my love for teaching and the English language!

4. What are your qualifications? I have a university major in educational psychology and a teaching qualification from The University of NSW Institute of Languages. I’m an avid reader of science, arts and languages, and I’m always seeking new ways to improve my own vocabulary and grammar!

5. Are you a native English speaker? The short answer is, yes, I am. The long answer is, I was born and raised in Brisbane before I decided to experience different parts of Australia’s beautiful east coast. I traveled to Canberra where I lived for a year and then moved to Sydney to live for almost 20 years including time in Asia teaching English. My family and I have been living in the ACT and we are now settling back into Sydney for study and work.


If you are looking for someone to help you get your desired band score for the IELTS, Maire is the best person for that. I engaged her services only once to help me with my speaking and listening, and she did not only help me with those skills, she taught me one of the most important things in life "trust in oneself". My encounter with her that day made me feel better about myself. She teaches with a heart. I thought it was impossible for me to pass my IELTS speaking test before but after that encounter with Maire, I know that I would make it and I did. I got my IELTS Test Results today and I got 8 in speaking. I could have gotten a perfect band score I believe if I have more sessions. Maire really knows what she is doing! -Rhodz April 2017
