Talking, writing, reading and listening are the 4 main ways to learn English.  Build up your confidence with Aim4Ways and enjoy it!



Private English tutor

Who Lisa Can Help Learn English:


Adults wanting the necessary or desired English vocabulary to communicate well and talk clearly. IELTS tuition is also available.

This can include how to communicate e.g. ringing 111 in emergency situations.


Students of any age can gain knowledge, support and encouragement.  Children become less shy and keen to study.

This can be after school, during weekends and whilst school holidays take place.

Private Lessons:

Lessons are tailor-made for students of all cultures and ages.  Private one-to-one lessons are often a great solution for a shy person, because they are often more relaxed and enjoy what they are learning. ​


We offer private English tutoring services for children to help them with settling into school and conversing with their teachers and friends. Lisa is an experienced English tutor of international students and can help prepare them for exams or if they’re struggling with English in specific subjects and to increase their confidence. Remember so many subjects are taught in English!

We also offer lessons for adults who are looking for employment by assisting them with job seeker skills.  

Adults attending IELTS exams need practice and a good understanding of what is required, which Lisa has knowledge of.


Group Lessons:

Aim4Ways offers small group lessons for people with similar requirements and English levels at the location in Pakuranga, with plenty of parking and an on-site café. This is an excellent way to practice conversational English and build your confidence by speaking English to others in a friendly environment. You could even make friends along the way!

Bookings are essential, especially due to many people who are busy during the day wanting after-school or after-work tuition hours.

The location for small groups is easy to find behind the Pakuranga Plaza, with plenty of car parks and lessons take place within a comfortable room setting.


Skype Lessons:

Please call our phone number to gain information about this technique.  Payments must be received 24 hours before the lesson begins.  Again, you can stop at anytime and even just have 1 lesson or more.  Bookings are essential.

The student must be ready to start on time and the lesson is for that student only.  No recordings are to take place including photographs.

There will be no refunds for disrupted or discontinued lessons due to connection issues at your end.  If you cancel the lesson within 24 hours before the lesson begins, then you will not be refunded.

A student must be a minimum of 13 years old for Skype lessons with us.
