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.

He is an outgoing teacher who is very good at teaching as well. He can make you have fun with English lesson and he knows how to improve your English skills. English will be an easy thing, when you study with him. His atmosphere classroom is very wonderful as well, thus, it can help you develop English skills a lot. Many people are really comfortable to study with him. Moreover, I'm pretty sure that you can gain lots of things from him which is beyond English language.

Dana was the best English teacher ever in my life. When I was in Austrailia, the class day was one of the most expected day. The class was not only English class also class of Austrailian life and philosophy. His teaching was very practical and useful, additionally very fun! I met some of international friends and experienced new culture thanks to him. I recommend him very strongly if someone look for a effective and enjoyable English class!
