Experienced English Language and ESL Teacher offers Oral and Written English lessons to Adult learners and school students.

Methodology

My teaching approach is to involve the students as much as possible in their own learning. I want to encourage lots of interaction between learners and myself, and / or between two or more learners. I like to keep lessons moving with a variety of activities including the four key elements of language learning: listening, speaking, reading / viewing and writing.

Background

I am an ESL /English Teacher / Trainer currently teaching LLN to aduIts. I am experienced teaching a culturally diverse range of language learners, both in Australia and internationally. I have taught English skills to learners from kindergarten age to 3rd age learners including retirees.

Rates

Travel Fee : $5
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $115
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $200

Details

If more than one student (of similar level) takes class, I will offer a discounted rate $50 ph for 3 or 4, $40 for 2 students. I am available between 4.30 - 7.30pm Mon -Thurs. and 10.30am - 1pm / 3 - 7pm Saturdays / Sundays.

Jan 27 – December 31, 2016 Emmaus College, Rockhampton

Position and Duties
English as an Additional Language or Dialect Teacher, Inclusive Curriculum and Enrichment Literacy Support Teacher Outcomes
Teach Years 7, 8 and 11 ESL, and team teach to provide intervention and support for Years 7 and 8 students with special education needs in the area of Literacy. As the Year 11 ESL is an OP subject, the course cannot be adjusted in content or assessment tasks, so my duty was to ensure students developed the knowledge and skills required to successfully complete set tasks. My genuine interest and adjustments to teaching approaches in both EAL/D and Intervention Literacy resulted in students improving their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills to allow promotion into the next year level. Also, increases in motivation to learn and confidence have been highlighted.
With Year 11 ESL, I developed a strong rapport with the students, and all attained C –B+ final grades, able to continue their OP in Year 12.

Christine's response

What an interesting lesson with delightful Samuel. It was our first lesson, but Samuel was ready to improve his skills in English language usage. I shall enjoy helping this bright young boy on his learning pathway.

I worked for many years with Christine in SE Asia and she was a great colleague to teach with. She got through to even the most challenging students and found, as well as tuned in to, their wavelengths! She also had a wonderful sense of humour which livened up the classroom!!
