The IELTS Reading & Writing lessons are magnificent. I recommend doing online lessons with Niamh as they have made me feel more confident rather than doing self-study & hopefully it will help me to get a scholarship for university.

Hippo has encouraged me to overcome my fears in order to express my insights and opinions clearly in English without feeling judged.

Niamh encourages all of her students to become autonomous (independent) learners and create critical friendship groups by constantly encouraging us.The strategies & techniques that I have accumulated with Hippo’s courses have helped me complete my Diploma in Teaching & Education and given me the confidence to go to Australia and perhaps complete my PGCE in the future.

A little more about us...

Niamh & Rob founded Hippo in early 2017. We are both designers and passionate about creating new and improved ways that students can learn to develop their own voice to succeed at higher level & beyond. This is important to us as Niamh has lived & worked in Indonesia, countries in Africa & South America and couldn’t speak the language!

Our expertise is in educational design, course creation, English language teaching, software development, user experience design, building learning communities, drinking coffee and understanding what is missing for learners so that we can fix it.
