I work with my students in their preferred learning styles as well as challenging them to increase their methods of language acquisition. Just tell me what you want to improve and we will work out an efficient and interesting way for you to reach your goals, so that you are not only learning during the time you spend with me - it will accelerate your learning the rest of the week as well.
I am an English Language teacher (as well as an English literacy and literature teacher). I have taught hundreds of students over 20 years at TAFE and AMES and also at private language schools. I have specialised in Business English, English for Hospitality and Medical English. I mostly work with advanced speakers who need to be able to use and understand more idioms.
I would like to help you get to the next level so you can attain your goals whether that is to study, or to improve your ability to converse, interact or get a job.
I understand that you want results for your time, money and effort.
I tailor individual programs for each student to help maximise your abilities and improve in your target areas.
Let me know if you cannot come to Doncaster and so would like me to travel to meet you somewhere - I charge a travel fee of an extra $20 per class if it is within 20 minutes driving distance of my home.

I have current National Police Certificate and Working with Children Check.
Perfect! I started my classes with Marion 2 months ago. She has helped me a lot by fostering my grammar, pronunciation and speaking skills. She has detected my knowledge blind spots and is helping me to fix them. She is flexible with her teaching plan and keen to tailor a program based on students’ needs.
In summary, Marion is kind, knowledgeable, experienced and more importantly, passionate. She is a great teacher, and I strongly recommend her.
Poorya is such an intelligent and fast learner who knows his preferred learning style. Together we worked out the best way to start to address his learning needs. We are now working on pronunciation, intonation, word stress and fluency for the PET.
Perfect! A kind, patient, experienced and considerate teacher this is. You can get exactly what you would like to get on English learning and teaching at much ease. Marion is easy to get on with and really accommodating to offer you help. Highly recommended for having a try with her!
Shibo was very polite and has an intelligent approach to furthering his educational goals. He sought my input and received my recommendations and suggestions with a positive attitude.
I was a colleague of Marion for about eight years at Box Hill Institute. We worked together as both EAL teachers and LLN (Language Litercy Numeracy)support teachers. As an EAL teacher Marion was always well organised, diligent and creative. She prepared interesting programs and developed good rapport with her students. In her role as an LLN support teacher, Marion worked across a range of subject areas and supported the students to reach their full potential. She was particularly effective in the School of Nursing where she ran small group tutorials and class lessons in medical terminology and calculations. Lynne Hart (EAL teacher BHI).
Having worked alongside Marion working with students, I can highly recommend her as a tutor who is quick to identify and target areas of need. She is highly capable and is a kind, patient and warm person who cares about her students and their results. A great teacher, a great tutor.
