Hello, language learners and welcome to my blog! My name is Yumna and I’m a CELTA-certified English teacher, a published author and a public speaking coach. I have taught English for test preparation (IELTS/TOEFL/Cambridge & Edexcel IGCSE/AS Level/A Level English 2nd Language, 1st Language and Literature), public speaking and academic/scientific report writing. My methodology focuses on learning through authentic material and activities. For test prep, I provide lots of mock exams and detailed feedback on what you need to improve on. I also provide many helpful resources and practice material for you to explore in your own time.

I have taught working professionals and school and college students. My students come from all backgrounds and have their own motivations for learning English.

I have created this blog to share useful tips and tricks with anyone learning English. My activities and tips are also beneficial and applicable for learners of other languages. Explore this blog to enrich your language journey!

I hold intensive English and CELTA prep classes (for aspiring English teachers) on italki.
