Your online tutor
I’ve been working in many areas of education and media for over 20 years!
I have taught in many settings, primary, secondary, further education, community education and online.
As a result, I have plenty of experience to support you with the correct methods and ensure you’re going to benefit from your English lessons with me.
I worked for BBC local radio for many years and received voice training to ensure engaging intonation and pronunciation when on air. As result I speak with a neutral, engaging, accent.
In addition, when working for the BBC, and in other areas of media, I wrote copy for BBC websites, campaigns, on-air presenters and many other on-air, pre produced audio and content. Resulting in writing for many different audiences and styles.
I have a first class, honours, degree in Education and Professional Development. An outstanding graded Certificate in Education (media specialism) and finally a Level 5 Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate, this qualification is recognised world-wide and the equivalent to a CELTA qualification.
I have received training from the BBC in social media, broadcast law, video production and using CMS.
As a freelancer, I have had many happy clients over the years.

What my clients say
Kirsty is amazing! I recommend her 100%. I was so stressed about my exam that I felt lost and wanted to give up, but thanks to her help and her accurate lessons, in just one week we worked hard and I passed the exam with flying colours! She is also a fantastic person who makes you feel comfortable! Love u Kirsty!
I came to Kirsty in a panic, my test was approaching soon and I was struggling with the writing task. After an intense week or two of lessons I scored a 7.5. Very happy with Kirsty and her lessons and will recommend to my friends.
Thank you so much for taking your time to tailor your style to suit mine. At the beginning I felt I’d never get to the bottom of any of these tasks and thank you for giving me courage and motivation to carry on with my research and learning new words every day!!
