Experienced ESL Teacher to give high-quality General and Academic lessons in Melbourne.

Methodology

I am a friendly, approachable and patient individual who likes to make students feel at ease. Despite promoting a relaxed and comforting environment, I will limit my own talk time in order to maximize the student's. I endure to make my lessons fun and engaging but also educational and learning focused.

A typical lesson will begin with a brief and friendly chat with my student about how they are and what they have been doing since the last lesson. This will then be followed up with a fun, discussion based warm-up activity such as a role play. We will then focus on a lesson topic, which will incorporate a variety of skills such as Speaking, Listening, Reading, Writing, Grammar and Vocabulary. The end of the lesson will involve a review of the content learned and the assignment of a (short) homework task.

Background

I have a Certificate IV in TESOL, a Master's degree in Cultural Heritage and Museum Studies and Bachelor's degree in History. I have been teaching English for over 2 years in a variety of locations including Vietnam, Australia and online. I have extensive experience across different curriculums and settings. These include schools, language centres, universities and private lessons. In addition to General English, I have experience teaching IELTS and Business English.
