Methodology I teach English from a phonetic understanding, so the student learns how to speak clearly and beautifully, the English language. I enjoy working on conversational practice, as well as improved reading habits. I assist to improve a students confidence for IELTS tests.
Background I have a BA (Music; Screen Production), and a TESOL III qualification with a total of 5.5 years of teaching experience.
I have a TESOL III qualification with a total of eight-years of teaching experience (plus a Graduate Certificate in Film & Television, and a Bachelor of Arts [Music; Screen Production]. I have been teaching ESL privately in Adelaide (from 2019 to the end of 2020); and before this, taught English in three private schools, plus gave lessons to many private students over that time as well (from Spain, India, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan and China); plus worked with 2nd-language students in UAE for 3.5 years, taught in both Taiwan and Thailand(Kindergarten babies right through to Adults). In early 2021, I moved to Darwin in the Northern Territory where I continue to teach privately with Zoom online, or I drive to teach in-person. Most of the time, students have moved forward steadily, even quickly, dependent on how dedicated they are to daily/weekly consistent effort - a fast learning student has a slow brain, and dedication! If you feel I would be a great fit for you, please don't hesitate to contact me to arrange your first free assessment lesson of 30 minutes.
LESSONS MUST BE KEPT AS CONSECUTIVE ONCE BOOKED - one lesson missed is counted as one lesson paid unless student is proven to be in hospital.
NB. Travel costs are included for one hour of travel, but may need to be re-negotiated depending on where the student lives - please check with Teacher Jaya.

I highly recommend Jaya as an ESL (English) tutor. Jaya has a unique way of teaching and dealing with my son (10 years old). She is very professional and friendly. Her positive attitude motivates my son's confidence. He really enjoys and looks forward to having Jaya's lessons every time!!
Jaya was my 7 years old daughter´s teacher.
Jaya invited me to join the class, in order for my daughter to practice the lessons with me the rest of the day.
It was an excellent way to learn more and better.
At the end of that period of time, my daughter was able to create and edit the text using new vocabulary and she demonstrated an understanding of grammar.
In addition to that, we could know a beautiful person. This is Jaya for us. A great person and a good teacher.
I am a teacher too, and I can recommend you Jaya.
