When I did my free consultation it was grateful to see how easy Joan made things. It was evident that she had vast experience helping others with the preparation for OET and she had excellent references.

During our lessons, I loved her good mood, and her ability to empathise and adapt our classes based on my specific requirements.

I passed my exam on the first attempt, after a 6-month preparation period. It was hard but you made things easy. I recommend her 100%.

I booked lessons with Joan because I wanted to have the opportunity to work abroad to improve myself as a professional, and the OET exam was my best choice to achieve my goal. I was able to get a real perspective of what I should expect about the OET exam.

In my opinion, learning English has been an obstacle to my professional development, so improving my English language skills and achieving my goal has been invaluable

For me, the outcome has been game-changing in terms of my future professional opportunities.

When I booked lessons with Joan I was worried about the speaking part and I wanted someone who could play a patient role and give me appropriate feedback.

Her feedback according to actual OET speaking criteria was what I valued the most. It helped me a lot to understand what this exam is about and how to modify my speaking skills.

The outcome of working with Joan has been Wonderful. I didn’t expect these grades when I first started preparing for this exam because I wasn’t confident. But the grades turned out great after I took intensive OET lessons with her.

I will recommend her classes to whoever needs to pass this exam. She is a very dedicated and committed teacher and walked me through the whole preparation process. I could improve my skills in a very short time thanks to her. 

The lessons are definitely worth the cost and I think the price is quite reasonable considering the quality of the lessons.

I really appreciate her help and support during my preparation for this exam.

Excellent teacher to prepare for OET. Very professional and didactic. She gives you a lot of material and helps you with everything you need and identifies your strengths and weaknesses. She always helps motivate you to move forward and improve. It shows that she has a lot of experience and for me, the fact that she is a doctor and an English teacher makes her the ideal teacher to accompany you in the process of preparing for this test. She is the best teacher ever!

As I have heard from many of my friends preparing for USMLE, this class is extremely helpful. Her experiences on the exam are precious! I strongly recommend this class to anyone who is preparing for OET. She gives you great feedback and corrects the necessary errors. She is very contributory to students’ preparation for the exam. It is really hard to be motivated when preparing for OET but with her, I can prepare efficiently for the exam.

 A necessary class to pass OET, Just believe in her and you will pass.

I successfully OET on my first attempt after having prepared with Joan. The clinical communication Joan taught me was very useful not only in OET only, but in the PLAB-2 exam too.

Today I had a discussion about medical job interviews and Joan, as usual, gave me a lot of really useful information. Joan teaches you to have perfect, precise but simple phrasing, which makes your conversations fluent, easily understandable and polite, despite any cultural differences you may have between your native country and the UK. Joan is definitely one of the most professional teachers I ever met. Thank you so much!

She’s fantastic~~!! She gave me a lot of examples of the language used by native English-speaking doctors, rather than just correcting my grammatical mistakes.

When I first started OET lessons with Joan, it was my initial experience preparing for an English speaking exam. I was searching for someone who could guide me in speaking more effectively right from the beginning.

Joan has shown immense patience with me, despite my slow speaking speed, and she has consistently instilled confidence in me during every class.

Thanks to Joan’s guidance, I was able to pass the OET exam within just two months of studying with her.

She always comes prepared for each lesson, which has greatly helped in developing my potential. I highly recommend Joan’s classes to anyone preparing for the OET or interviews.

The value of Joan’s lessons surpasses the amount I paid for them. Even if I could go back in time, I would undoubtedly choose her lessons and willingly invest in them.

“Thank you for being so supportive during this process and for your kind words. You helped me with my UK journey, and I’m forever grateful.”

When I booked lessons switch Joan I was looking for a way to adapt what I had done and what I knew in a way that Brits could more easily understand. I had the information but didn’t know how to express it in English.

Joan provided insights as a former doctor who knew the NHS and how the system works and guided me through this process – her experience with this matter came in handy.

As a result of working with Joan, I learnt how to write my job applications, what to say and not to say, how not to undersell myself and how to answer interview questions promptly and proficiently.

The lessons are great value for money. This really felt like a high-quality service and I looked forward to our sessions. Trust was the most important thing for me – I felt safe to trust Joan and her advice.

All the best, Roxana
