Train Teachers

We deliver training programmes for teachers working with English Language Learners (ELLs) in local and international schools.

The Learning Coach

Hi, I'm Vannessa Misso-Veness

I am an English as a Second Language (ESL) learning specialist with 20 years of teaching experience in both Pedagogy (how to teach a child) and Andragogy (how to teach an adult).

Unlike English tutoring, I direct, design, deliver professional development programmes addressing language, literacy and learning across the curriculum for non-English native students. I also coach parents, train teachers, advise schools and design classrooms to align the educational approach for the students' wellbeing and learning success.


As a certified NeuroChange Method™ practitioner, experienced English teacher, examiner and trainer, I developed the “TLC” Coaching Method, a structured yet nurturing approach for non-native English parents and their children.


Regardless of whom I teach, I believe in creating interactive and reflective sessions that will leave participants inspired, brimming with ideas and confidence.

Ultimately, all learning can be cascaded into every aspect of our teaching and learning journeys.


"The aim of education is not merely gaining knowledge; it’s the values and skills you acquire on your journey."

"Vannessa's passion, expertise, and boundless, infectious energy were instrumental in raising the achievement of our EAL students at NLCS Jeju. Her tireless commitment was appreciated by all, and she was successful in ensuring that all teachers, across all subjects, accepted their responsibility towards language development."

Paul Friend

FCCT Founding Principal, North London Collegiate School, Singapore

"Vannessa is an incredible source of knowledge when it comes to teaching students in a second language. She delivered the TESMC course at NLCS Jeju for about 6 years and the quality of her delivery was exceptional. If you’re thinking about embedding TESMC, text-type mapping or moving towards CLIL in your school. I would thoroughly recommend Vanessa."
