Highly experienced secondary + pre-university English/ESL teacher for individual/group zoom/south-eastern suburbs tutorials

Methodology

My teaching approach is to work with you and diagnose your needs and goals before getting you to where you need to go. It's a very student-centered approach based on where YOU'RE at. I like to run a few preliminary tests and talk to you about what you want to achieve in our sessions. Maybe it's a case of improving your writing through targeted grammar exercises. Maybe you need deep reading practice. Perhaps you need accent correction and someone to help you identify the sounds on the phonemic chart that you're having problems with. Perhaps your working towards your IELTs and need some feedback and further work. Maybe you're even trying to get into a select entry school and want feedback/help preparing for your exam! I'm here to help you!

Background

I am a highly experienced, registered, English/ESL teacher with six years experience in pre-university (Monash University Foundation Year) and in secondary English. I have taught English/ESL/IELTS to students aged 3 to 42 years. I have also spent time as a parliamentary reporter in the Parliament of Victoria. I have extensive experience in coaching schools.
