My classes are based on an effective teaching. First I explain concepts. Then I give to students handy examples in an interactive session. Finally we apply vocabulary and grammar in a specific case to use what we learn in each class. Besides, I love role games to strengthen concepts and words in context.
I am a fun English Teacher living in Australia. I have a certification for teaching IELTS and I have prepared different people for both types of exam written and computer delivered test. I enjoy what I do and I have fun teaching.

Aura was a great student. She loves to learn and enjoy each lesson. She is fun to be around and has an easy laugh. For her, there is no age to learn and I enjoy to be part of her process. Keep up with that great energy!
I have been studying with her for 3 months and I am happy that she is doing her best to teach me. She knows my weakness in English so she is trying to fix it and making me familiar with speaking English.
Andrea is a very patient and dedicated teacher. She helped me prepare the IELTS providing the necessary tools and using an individual approach.
