I have taught music to many people whose first language was not English and have also had to teach them English as well. Every new wave of immigrants to Australia washed into the suburb of Campsie whe

Methodology

I use various methods of teaching as each individual will have different areas of need depending on whether they are growing up in a family or working in an office or going on holiday or studying a particular topic. In most cases I use sketches and labeling along with correcting the student’s pronunciation.
The best dictionary I would recommend is the Illustrated Oxford Dictionary. For those interested in the particularly Aussie English, the additional use of the Macquarie Dictionary. Reading to the student and then having them read back a story helps their comprehension and improves their pronunciation.

Background

Besides teaching music, I had overseas students from Malaysia, Japan, Finland and India staying at my home whilst attending English colleges or university. They were assisted by English conversation at the dinner table and assistance with homework afterwards.

Rates

Rate for a 1-hour lesson : $50/h

Details

For an adult couple I would charge $AUD75 per hour, a saving of $AUD25 on the full rate.
Young students, siblings or friends in groups of four (4) pay only $AUD12.50 per head.

Lorraine's CV

My mother taught me to speak the Queen’s English from infancy and both I and my three sons could read long before we went to school. My grandchildren all have followed suit. That was a fortunate beginning.
Because of the war and my health, we moved from Sydney to the Blue Mountains when I was in Primary school and my teen years were divided between the public high school and two private schools because my parents were searching for better teachers. When I left school, I finished my Associate Diploma of Music of the London College of Music and then took a secretarial course at Katoomba Technical College and went to work for my father’s solicitor. A few years later I moved to Sydney to work for bigger legal firms and also for other businesses to gain more varied business experience.
After I was married and had my first son, I commenced teaching at home and when my third son was two and a half years old I set up a private practice in the centre of Campsie where I taught music theory, piano, violin and guitar and also took a partner to teach classical guitar.
After divorcing my husband, I moved to the country and taught in Goulburn and Crookwell whilst still teaching in Campsie two days a week.
In 1981 I was injured in a road accident caused by a young drunken driver and had to stop work for many months. Whilst I was recovering from my injuries, I went to live in college at the University of New England and obtained a Bachelor of Music and Arts majoring in music composition and performance and English Literature and a Dip. Ed.
I was called home to nurse my mother through the last eighteen month’s of her life so was unable to take many students during this time and have left Sydney for the country again.
In Lithgow I taught piano part time and renovated an old house and let it as a short-term holiday rental.
When my eldest son came to live with me he was very ill and so I moved up to the Central coast to be near to my other family members. Now he has died I want to start teaching again either via the internet or from home.
