I make my teaching fun yet challenging. It's more interactive and not at all lecture based. Teaching and learning is a success for me as I believe and follow learning by doing approach. I use a lot of technology for my classes as this aids in the learning process.
Hello, I’m Jacqueline, a native English Speaker living in Melbourne. I have a Masters in English, Bachelor in Education and a Cambridge Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) from RMIT University, Australia. I am also a certified IELTS Trainer by the British Council.
I have been passionately teaching the English Language for over seven years.
I train candidates in developing their receptive (reading and listening) and productive (speaking and writing) skills to either successfully achieve their desired scores in IELTS/PTE or to be well versed in the English Language. I make learning fun, interactive yet challenging.
