Professional academic and business English language trainer with over 25 years experience in the field of English as a Second Language provides customised lessons in Perth.

Methodology

My lessons are always learner-centred and geared mainly towards adults and professionals; however, I have extensive experience teaching General and Academic English to international students. My lessons usually start with a brief chat /Needs Analysis, so I can gauge what you know and what you want or need to be able to do. The lesson content is selected to reach your needs and based on your interests if it is a one on one lesson. You will always get feedback, on the spot or not, depending on which works better for you, on vocabulary, pronunciation, new words, grammar etc, so you can learn faster. I will give you strategies to help you improve also beyond the lesson time. There will always be time for talking - the best way to learn a language is to use it, and to practice the skills you need to develop, right? Will there be time for some fun, too? Yes! You know how the saying goes,
" All work and no play..."

Background

I have been giving English lessons to international and professional learners for more than 25 years and I still enjoy customising lessons to meet their needs and work towards their target. I have taught both in business and academic (university) environments, in Perth and in Italy, to children, teenagers, young adults and business professionals, operating in an international context, Academic English to international Nurses, who have therefore been able to effectively continue their higher education and remain in Australia to work, Legal English (email writing, etc) to Italian Paralegals. My most recent experience is tutoring learners preparing for the PTE Test.
I have also taught Italian language and culture to children and international professionals. Under my guidance, some have been able to retain their jobs, others have been chosen to work abroad, others have passed their exams.
I am patient, hardworking and goal oriented and I wish to share this plethora of experience gained in teaching English and Italian with my learners.
