Australian native speaking English teacher offers her international experience to local students (Darwin, NT)

Methodology

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.

Background

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.

Perfect! Jaya is a very good teacher with a long experience. Her methology is taking time with the most important things to give my daughter the skills to advance propperly.
Appart from that she congratulates my daugter each time she did something right, what I consider very important.

Mariela is a delightful student - very attentive, perseveres, and has beautiful manners. She is doing very well after just one week (four lessons), and has completed all homework tasks beautifully.

V
Vincent

Perfect! Jaya is a passionate teacher, She always share her music and life experience in the class which also helps me to talk more into the conversation. In addition, Jaya correct my pronunciation directly when we are talking and make me read a lot to add my vocabularies . Im lucky to have a teacher like Jaya.

Jaya's response

Vincent is a keen and diligent student who is working towards his IELTS exam, level 7. He is achieving great results through reading out loud, and SLOW pronunciation of words, to carefully dissect the phonic sounds of letters. He's a delight to teach, kind and relaxed manner - a lovely student!

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!!

P
Patricia

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.
