Experienced but young at heart English teacher in Sydney improves your writing comprehension and grammar to improve your IELTS TOEIC TOEFL scores

Methodology

I tailor my lesson to the needs of the student and what they want to achieve, but classes are still well structured beginning with building knowledge and understanding before moving on to practice that new learning to aim at proficiency. I like to build each class on the foundations of the previous one, but I'm flexible enough to repeat, review or reteach any key elements that need it. This is done with a questioning and discovery method, enhancing the students critical thinking skills.

Background

I have been teaching English for 25 years, and I helped students enter university, finish their degrees, find new jobs, and get IELTS scores that got them permanent visas for Australia. I've helped them write their first ever essays with academic referencing, develop their critical thinking skills, become proficient at taking note in lectures, understand principles of business through English classes, and learn so much about the world around them using the medium of English.
