7 Years of Teaching Experience

(10 Reviews)


TESOL, University of Hertfordshire


Whenever we talk about experiences, what counts is the quality rather than the quantity. The Englishire project has given me ample opportunities to help English learners of all ages master the language.


Some of my coaching adventures in recent years include:

  • coaching non-native English speakers to help develop their language skills, grammar and vocabulary
  • coaching local and expatriate professionals to help improve their business and conversational English
  • coaching business undergraduates in academic writing to help nurture their content management skills
  • coaching candidates taking English proficiency tests to help strengthen their language foundations
  • coaching schoolchildren to help foster a growth mindset and a lifelong learning culture

Be it directly or indirectly, each of the above has helped refine my approach to language coaching.

Tutoring Approach

Inspirational and educational, the Englishire approach is based primarily on transformative, intuitive and collaborative learning.

Fueled by everything that I got from my 27 years of experience in language learning, Englishire only has one ultimate goal in mind: create an environment that promotes your language skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) so that you can gradually pick up the English language the natural way.

Rather than bombard you with tons of information that you can’t relate to, every single activity in Skilletro uses context to facilitate learning.

By getting quality exposure to real-life examples and scenarios, you’ll have a much better idea of how to use the language in everyday situations—whether for academic or work purposes.



I am so happy that I took Jion's lessons. The tips that he shared with me were really useful. He were very helpful in answering my questions too. Overall, I truly appreciate what he taught me.

Mr. Cheung

Jion is very thoughtful. Even after the lesson is over, he still gives Joanne suggestions on how to improve. His concern for the student's learning progress is great to see.


Jion's grammar and writing skills are very good. His advice helped me a lot and he was willing to explain everything in detail. I'm so glad that I can now write with confidence!

Ms. Aoki

I like Jion's approach. He always shares with me his opinions on my daughter's work. For each essay, he also shows her what she must do to improve. His comments are very useful!


Jion is so fluent and confident with the English language. He helped improve my grammar with patience, teaching me how to change the sentence structure to make it more native-like. Also, he gave me many useful tips on academic writing. It was an excellent learning experience for me. I really appreciate his work.


Jion is a great English language coach. I like how he makes everything easy for me to understand. The detailed explanation also shows his dedication to teaching. I'm really grateful for the opportunity to learn from such an experienced English speaker.


With so many websites giving free English learning tips these days, I thought it wouldn't be necessary to get a tutor. But after taking Jion's one-on-one lessons, I changed my mind. For a busy working professional like me, I always wanted to improve my English without filling my schedule with too many lessons. His approach was really helpful in that regard. He shared with me plenty of tips on how to practice my English skills by myself. Wherever I go, I'm now able to use every opportunity I have to improve my English further.

Dr. Ng

Jion's excellent command of the language and willingness to share his knowledge are evident in his approach to language coaching. Regardless of the difficulty of the topic, he has a canny ability to explain it in a comprehensible and compelling way. When coaching undergraduates in academic writing, showing them how to present a logical and convincing argument, his grasp of linguistic nuances and attention to detail are particularly impressive.


Whether it's face-to-face or online, Jion puts a great amount of effort into coaching his students. His passion for the English language is inspiring. When I first approached him for guidance on my IELTS, I was hoping to get some quick tips on how to improve my writing. To be honest, due to the heavy workload I was dealing with, I was looking for something that could make my preparations easier. Surprisingly, Jion told me from the start that we wouldn't focus on the answering techniques. I thought that wasn't a good idea because I was struggling a bit in the previous writing paper. But I gave it a try anyway. Thank God it turned out to be the right decision. Instead of spoon-feeding me with things that I already knew, he made me see the whole picture of how to write better. For example, he showed me how to convey and organize my ideas, and explained a few ways that I could use to make the writing more interesting. All that was really helpful. Without his input, I might not have achieved the score I wished for. And I'm really grateful to Jion for making me realize that there's no shortcut to improving my writing skills. It's something that I need to continuously work on. Thank you so much for your time and effort, Jion!


No matter where you are in your English learning journey, Jion will definitely be able to help you improve. Thanks to his friendly personality and fluent English, the lessons are fun, interesting and easy to follow. But what I like most about him is his ability to inspire you to keep learning and growing.

I would like to thanks you for your guidance in IELTS preparation. I have been in a complete lost about many things in IELTS exam components , until I’ve met you. In Listening, you gave me tips and tricks, in Reading you improve my understanding, in writing I’ve learnt the correct format, organized my contents and how to use an academics words. In speaking , I’ve learnt some new topic and how to understand and answer within the topic. With a countless grammatical error that you’ve corrected me I am a better person in learning English. Oh my dear teacher thanks ? I wanted you to know, how I felt better in my confidence to face exam tomorrow. With God bless , I hope I will pass with a great band score. God bless you teacher! Love yaaaa.


Such an amazing moment and beautiful pictures ? I don't know I can get these beautiful moments with you again or not but I want to say that every single moment I spend with you is such a delightful and memorable time in my life. Having a teacher like you is a blessing for me maybe one day I will tell my future generations that I have a teacher like you as a mother?.All of your advices and your inspiration is noted in my heart always.Be always happy as you have and my best wishes with you . I hope my journey with you will be very long .This is a small message from me to explore my feelings and respect for you .Keep me in your prayers ? Thank you


Thank you so much Dr. Annithaa teacher. I am writing to express my deepest appreciation for your incredible dedication, passion, and unwavering commitment to teaching me for the Muet Examination. Your patience and willingness to go extra mile did not go unnoticed, whether it was spending extra time after class to clarify my doubts and life related things ( how to be passionate doing one thing that you love , love towards pets, how to handle arrogant and rude people around us) it is beyond exceptional. Not gonna lie our bond especially when it comes to dogs made us more closer together ? I am forever indebted to your guidance. May god bless you and I am thankful to god that I met a successful role model and kind-hearted person like you still exist in this cruel world. I will always keep in touch with you teacher.


Studying with Dr Annithaa brought a lot of happiness in my life. Dr. Annithaa is not like any other educators whom I met throughout my life journey. When I first met her, my first impression is to understand that she was just like any other professional educator, but I was wrong. The reason why I am saying this is because Dr. Annithaa is much more than just a teacher to me. I adore and take her as a second mother to me. She is a very strict educator yet very loving. She care about her students and make sure to impart Top World Class Education. Studying with Dr Annithaa can be fun. As I mentioned earlier, she is very strict, yet I can joke around her as she is very funny too. We also share common interest. Whenever I have anxiety, she will divert my attention into something productive to give me lots of confidence because initially I thought that I would fail my fail as I was not confident of my level. This little things is what made me to appreciate Dr Annithaa. I never met any educators who would go this far to make me comfortable in class. Oh. I forgot to mention that she made one of the best coffee every time in our class and sometimes orange Sunquick if she runs out of coffee. Although she is extremely busy, she doesn't forget to make a cup of delicious coffee for me. I would highly recommend students to study with Dr.. Annithaa where your learning process can turn into a beautiful experience for you, not just because students can be comfortable around her but she is also a very dedicated individual in her tasks in contributing the best world class education to her students. Dr Annithaa, may God bless you for all that you have done not just for me, but to all your students in helping them to achieve their dreams in life.

She is a great teacher in terms of motivation, I love about that. If we are in troubles she will pay attention about that and give us solutions, she had immense of idea because of her experiences. However, my suggestion for MUET candidates who want to gain result band 4.5 and above, you need to be at least band 4 level to catch up with Dr. Annitaa’s 16hours teaching package. By the way, I got my MUET result: Band 4. I learnt widely speaking patterns & improve my listening skills because of her fluency & expertise in speaking English. Even though I study MUET with her, I would say she is a great teacher especially in IELTS, I learnt immensely in terms of attitude from her.


Dr Annithaa is a versatile educator who can give a fantastic style of learning exposure in terms of developing English skills, build up confidence among students to practice English and very cognizant with her teaching method. She is humble, self motivated and very helpful to all her students without any prejudice in order to ensure good results where it can be beneficial towards their brighter future. As for me, I always admire her and I guarantee you that by choosing her as your tutor can give much advantages towards a proper English learning and help you to excel well in your examination and study.


Teacher Annithaa helps their students succeed academically to make sure they soar to a greater height in their life. Her English is so fluent that students can understand her easily. She is also very enthusiastic about English education and that’s why he is my No. 1 teacher.


I can write an essay on how awesome she is, but to highlight some of her key attributes, I must mention, She is passionate about her profession. Extremely positive and Helpful. All in all, she is at the top of her game.


Dr. Annithaa is very helpful. I enjoyed her private class that follows my learning pace and needs. She captured and improved my English strengths and weaknesses with her high-quality teaching. I would like to recommend Dr. Annithaa to all students who are preparing for their IELTS examination


Dr Annithaa is very lovely kind teacher. Back in 2019, I’ve struggled a lot in finding the best teacher to help me prepare my upcoming IELTS exams. I went to few other teachers before I met teacher Annithaa. Unfortunately, I progressed nothing with other teachers. But with teacher Annithaa, within 2 months I could say, I have improved a lot in terms of writing, speaking, listening and reading (IELTS) and even feel more confident to sit for the exam. I am now just graduated from one of universities in the UK and currently working in London. I knew i wouldn’t have passed my IELTS exams at first place without assistance from Dr Annitthaa. I’m grateful I found her in MyPrivateTutor, plus she is very lovely kind teacher I’ve ever had. Thank you so much teacher Annitthaa


I would say that choosing her as my personal tutor was an intelligent step I ever had. She always put her enthusiasm in every class we go through as well as gives me immense amount of motivation to strive for success. Personally, I would recommend Dr Annithaa for all students or IELTS candidates to study with her in order to improvise your English language proficiency. Thank you so much teacher for all your support during my IELTS journey.


At first I could not speak English because I did not have much vocabulary in my brain. After I met you I knew a lot of English that I never knew like words that were high level English etc. I studied with you to prepare for IELTS and I just got results for my IELTS and maybe it hasn't been a fortune because I failed my test but it wasn't because of who taught me but it was because of my ability that only got there. I do not blame anyone for this problem , I only blame myself because I did not try enough on this issue. I am very lucky to meet you teacher, you are like my mother, taking care of me very kindly and patiently. good luck to your life teacher.


Dr. Annithaa is the best English teacher in the world. I have tried many teachers before but nobody could helped to score the required band in IELTS except her. She is the right choice and the solution for IELTS constraints. I strongly recommend her, she is the best in terms of education as well as she is very friendly and humble.


I would highly recommend her to all students because of her professional way of imparting knowledge to students where I personally have experienced her way of teaching. She gives students detailed information about each and every topic in class. I am indeed very lucky to have studied with her and she has such powerful strategy to make students get a very high score band for IELTS.

Tutoring Approach

Are you tired of boring and traditional tutoring methods? Well, look no further because I am here to make your learning experience one-of-a-kind! When it comes to my tutoring approach, I like to think of myself as a magician preparing for a grand show. Just like a magician, I carefully plan each lesson to captivate and engage my students. My goal is not only to help them understand the subject matter but also to make learning a fun and exciting experience! To start, I take the time to understand my students' unique needs and learning styles. This helps me tailor my lessons specifically to them, ensuring that they get the most out of each session. Whether they prefer visual aids, interactive games, or hands-on activities, I'm always ready with a smorgasbord of teaching techniques. What makes my lessons truly one of a kind is my ability to infuse humor and creativity into the learning process. I firmly believe that laughter is the best medicine for a dull and weary mind. By injecting a dose of humor, I create a positive and enjoyable atmosphere where my students feel comfortable and motivated to learn. In addition to my playful approach, I also emphasize practical application. I bring real-world examples and scenarios into my lessons, allowing my students to see how the concepts they are learning can be applied in their everyday lives. This not only makes the subject matter more relevant but also helps them grasp the material more effectively. Now let's talk about my tutoring technique for online classes and home tuition. With the rise of technology, I've embraced the virtual world with open arms. Online classes allow me to connect with students from all corners of the globe, transcending distance and time zones. I utilize video conferencing platforms, interactive whiteboards, and various online resources to create an engaging and dynamic learning environment. For home tuition, I bring the same energy and enthusiasm into the comfort of your own abode. Whether we're seated at the kitchen table or sprawled out in the living room, I ensure that the learning environment is cozy and inviting. This relaxed setting allows my students to ask questions freely, explore ideas, and feel at ease while absorbing new knowledge. In conclusion, my tutoring approach is a mix of careful planning, humor, creativity, and practical application. I strive to make each lesson a unique and enjoyable experience, whether in an online class or home tuition setting. So, let's embark on this educational adventure together – where learning is not just informative, but also incredibly fun!

BSc Biochemistry, MSc Biotechnology (Current))


The best tutoring experience I've had was when I worked with a student who was struggling with math. Initially, they lacked confidence and found the subject daunting. However, through personalized attention, patient explanations, and tailored teaching methods, I helped them gain a deeper understanding of the concepts. Witnessing their gradual improvement and seeing their confidence grow was incredibly rewarding. Eventually, the student not only mastered the material but also developed a newfound enthusiasm for math. It was gratifying to know that I played a part in their academic success and self-confidence.

Tutoring Approach

The best tutoring approach is one that is tailored to the individual needs and learning style of the student. It involves:

Assessment: Understanding the student's strengths, weaknesses, and learning goals through assessments and discussions.

Personalization: Creating customized lesson plans and learning materials that address the specific needs and interests of the student.

Engagement: Keeping the student actively engaged in the learning process through interactive activities, real-life examples, and hands-on experiences.

Clear Communication: Explaining concepts clearly and patiently, using language and explanations appropriate for the student's level of understanding.

Positive Reinforcement: Providing praise and encouragement to boost the student's confidence and motivation.

Feedback: Offering constructive feedback and guidance to help the student identify areas for improvement and track their progress over time.
