Methodology

I work through conversation and interaction at a personal level as well as written communication when necessary. My lessons are aimed at giving students experience and expanding on that experience to improve vocabulary, usage and grammar. You can expect that I will correct and expand on your exisiting usage of English.

I have taught in high schools and many universities mainly in Sydney and mainly in education but also in other subjects. I have qualifications in teaching English as a second language as well as a Masters and PhD in education.
