Learn English the natural way with an experienced Australian native English speaking teacher.

Methodology

I work with students errors and areas of weakness to remove the errors from their speaking and then focus on developing vocabulary and the ability to speak on a variety of topics. I also usually like to give written homework connected to the speaking topics we have covered in our lessons as I believe this helps the lesson to stick in students minds so that they can remember things more easily.

Background

I've been teaching English in Australia and abroad for almost 8 years. I have worked for private colleges and as a private tutor as well as running my own English college for 2 1/2 years. I like to develop strong relationships with students as I believe this helps them to develop the ability to express themselves more fully and deeply

I had English class with Dana for 5 months, which was very helpful and useful. He's a great teacher, not too serious and I think it's a good way to learn a language.

Dana is one of the best teacher I've ever had. He's very patient, kind, explain things very well. In a short period of time, I've learned a lot and most of all he's soooo funny. I definitely recommend him :)

I have been Australia for 3 years and on the first year, I met Dana and had wonderful experiences. He became my lovely friend, awesome teacher, smart guide. Now I am on my way, but he is still great friend! He is so responsible for he work and life. Always appreciate. He is one of reasons to stay here.
