Hello! I'm Melanie
It is my fundamental core value to appreciate the importance of cultural relations and educational opportunities that the UK educational system can offer to international students across the world.
I endeavour to create friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and people of other cultures. I believe it is important to make a positive contribution to changing lives by creating opportunities, building connections and engendering trust through Education.
My work for G5 education involves providing my clients with all the additional academic and personal support which is needed to confidently navigate the key transition points in their school careers, giving them the optimum chance to gain entry into the most selective schools in the country at all the appropriate access points.
I set out to inspire my clients to dream big in the belief that they can go on to become our future leaders and innovators in their own chosen career paths.
In my work for G5 Education I continue to achieve a growing catalog of satisfying results for my clients. 2019 client successes include, access to Harrow School, Down House and Oundle School.

Working as an IELTS Examiner for the British Council in China gave me the chance to explore far more than my own skills and abilities. I had the unique opportunity to explore all sides of Chinese culture, while assessing written and spoken English skills of students studying for Cambridge English exams at all levels of the exam programme.

Communication & Interview Techniques
My own expert ability to communicate fundamentally supports my ability to effectively meet my clients' needs. I, in turn show my clients how to develop these skills. These skills have given my clients the confidence and ability to make positive and lasting impressions with school interview panels across the UK.
Building Contact Network with UK Schools
I believe the two most important networking skills to possess are to be a good at listening and asking the right questions. I have used these skills to build a credible and reliable network list for my clients to gain access to and now attend at many of the UK-leading schools.
Consistent & Developing Track
Record of Success
Chinese families come to me because I have a proven track record in finding suitable solutions that Chinese families seek when seeking Overseas Education. In my work for G5 Education I continue to achieve a growing catalog of satisfying results for my clients. 2019 client successes include, access to Harrow School, Down House and Oundle School.
