Private English tutor

for all levels!


What makes Aim4Ways unique is that we focus on what the student wants to learn with incredible encouragement and motivational skills.   We are based in East Auckland & Lisa can travel to you within that region or you can come to her from any Auckland suburb.  


It is so important now for children not to fall behind at school because in the end they will need to get a job or enter into further education after leaving their high school/college.  

Adults that are from another country need to be able to communicate well without any frustration.  There are so many of you that want to pass e.g. the IELTS exams, and our tutor is here to help you. 

Aim4Ways is very proud of all of our students who are achieving what they want and need.  The private one-to -one lessons are the most popular and proud family members appreciate continuous feed-back that they receive frequently.


Only $35 per hour for private one-to-one lessons!   Skype lessons $35 per hour. 

$30 per hour for small group lessons, which are held at Te Tuhi, 13 Reeves Road, Pakuranga. $15 per person, per hour if you form your own group with a minimum of 6 people. Bookings are essential.  The first single person lesson assessment is free! 


Lisa Yelavich is a professionally skilled and competent Kiwi English language tutor, with over 25 years of experience and you can phone her on 021 1514353 anytime.  She was born in Auckland and understands New Zealand well, which is a great benefit for students.

Due to the no set course time frames, this means that there is no associated lengthy waiting until the next course begins, and far less levels of noise and disruption because you are not in a large classroom. 


The hourly price is to be paid before each lesson begins - cash or Eftpos.   Books, folders and hand-out sheets including pictures are provided free.

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


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.

Job Seekers needing skills e.g. writing a curriculum vitae and learning the different job searching methods within Auckland.

This knowledge is for any types of employment.

Private Lessons:

Lessons are tailor-made for students of all cultures and ages.  Having an English teacher come to your East Auckland home is often a great solution for a shy child, where they are often more relaxed in their own environment. ​


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.

We also offer basic English 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.
