Star Teacher Profile: Ms Julie

Updated: Nov 17, 2021

There is an ancient Japanese proverb that reads,

"Better than a thousand days of diligent study, is one day with a great teacher."

Great teachers like the one in our latest teacher profile, are to be treasured.

In this blog, we will bring the gem that is Ms Julie Yarnall into focus. We are privileged to boast a teacher of her stature and calibre on our faculty team and in the next few paragraphs, we will explain why.

Ms Julie is an experienced IELTS examiner. She has taught thousands of students and has over three decades of teaching experience behind her. Before moving over to join us at ME Education, Ms Julie worked for the English Schools Foundation in Hong Kong for over twenty years. She has been a Head of Middle School (Years 9-11) and a Faculty Head.

When it comes to examinations, students will do well to have Ms Julie on their side. She has the experience of teaching English for IGCSE, A ‘Level, IB, HKDSE, and IELTS examinations. She is also well versed with the curriculums of IB (PYP and MYP), English National Curriculum (Key Stages 1-5) and local HK systems. For younger students she can help them prepare for school tests and other exams such as Cambridge Starters, KET and PET.

Impressive qualifications and a seasoned history of experience aside, there is something else that makes Ms Julie even more of a treasured asset to ME Education. Ms Julie is the mother of two children who were educated in Hong Kong international schools.

Her experience of schools, exams as well as the student and parent experience is first-hand! This gives her a unique insight and appreciation into the entire process from start to finish. Ms Julie knows the inner workings of the education system and she uses her knowledge to help her students achieve the highest levels of success. For example, when preparing for school interviews, Ms Julie knows that although schools want to hear about the student’s accomplishments, they also want to hear about their personal qualities and aspirations. It’s important for students to be able to articulate these and Ms Julie shows them how.
