Every student has their unique learning style and I enjoy the challenge of identifying the individual needs of each student and implementing them all in to one fun-filled lesson.
Once I have an understanding of my student or class, I analyse the information and use it to plan my lessons. By tailoring lessons to the individual need of the student, my student's enjoy learning and are able to retain what they learn.
I taught English in two language centres in Xi'an, China; EF English First and Sesame Street English.
In total, I have taught approximately 1400 students over the past three years.
It takes a lot of time an care to deliver great lessons to suit everybody. By learning about each of my students' needs, I am able to tailor my lessons accordingly.

During this role, I was taught many skills. Skills that apply to teaching and working with children:
I know how to grade my language to communicate with people who of all levels and abilities of the English language.
Working with people from various backgrounds helped me understand the importance of respecting different beliefs and cultures.
I am mindful of the way address people and use my body language.
Diversity. I am very open-minded and appreciate that Australia is very multi-cultural and diverse.
My experience with Serco combined with my experience in China has given me a new outlook on life and has helped me to see the world through many eyes. It has helped me grow as a person and taught me that patience and caring go a long way.
We may all be made of the same genetics, but no one human is the same and that is what makes us so unique. By learning what makes each of my student’s unique, I am able to deliver, with confidence, a learning experience that sticks.
