Master of TESOL qualified Monash graduate delivers English lessons for adult mgrants.

Methodology

Communicative approach and task based language teaching is my preferred methods of teaching as they give a lot of opportunity to the students to involve in the learning process. I prefer to approach lessons mainly through arousing curiosity and getting them involve in discussions.

Background

I have experience in teaching English for secondary school students in Sri Lanka and worked as a volunteer home tutor in AMEP in Victoria, Australia. My Monash post graduate degree is related to teaching English for speakers of other languages (TESOL). Further, I have experience in tutoring for more than 6 years for students from grade one to twelve.

Rates

Travel Fee : $10

Details

I prefer not to travel more than 30km for lessons.
