Linda Dunne

I have worked as an IELTS and Cambridge examiner and preparation tutor for about 8 years now, so I know what examiners are looking for when they mark your Speaking and Writing. I can give you strategies which will help you get the score you want in Reading and Listening as well.

I am not only about exams, though. I have worked with students from Starter to Advanced levels, with students aged 5 to those in their 50s and older so I am familiar with learner strengths and problems. I will tailor make your lesson to ensure you improve. 


I look forward to hearing from you. 

IELTS Examiner since 2002.
