Methodology

~ My Lessons and Teaching Style ~

I believe it is important for the student to get the most out of their lesson time. Therefore, I encourage my students to do most of the speaking and try to limit myself to asking questions/facilitating conversation or providing corrections where necessary.

For correction, I try to provide feedback immediately for grammar, vocabulary of pronunciation mistakes. I feel this is one of the best ways a student can learn and improve.

I regularly receive feedback from students that I am extremely patient and that I am an excellent teacher.

Richard is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!

Background

Do you need to improve your IELTS speaking score? Do you need to attend meetings, write email/reports, or speak to colleagues at work in English?

If so, I can help you.


~ My Background ~

I’ve been teaching general English at all levels, including business and academic English for 6 years.

After you have scheduled a lesson with me, I will ask your English learning goals. During your first few lessons, we will work together to create a study plan that you can take with you, even if you decide not to continue lessons with me. This means you will be able to continue to improve your English on your own!

I have a CELTA certificate in teaching English, as well as a Bachelor of Computer Science. I worked in the Information Technology field for over 18 years, at many corporations such as Rothschild, Siemens, KPMG, Westinghouse and Australia Post.

7 years ago, I decided to change career and follow my passion which is teaching!!

I have also taught juggling for about 20 years and I love seeing the joy on someone’s face when they learn something new. It’s amazing to watch someone improve their skills over time.

I am also a life/business coach and very focused on helping my students achieve their English, life, and business goals.


~ Me as a Teacher ~

I feel that I am extremely empathetic and always try to ensure that my clients are getting the most out of their learning experience, regardless of whether they are in a classroom or one on one situation. I try to constantly improve myself as a teacher by using continuous improvement techniques to re-assess how each teaching session went.

Having good rapport with my students is vital - I realise that learning a language can be a very difficult process and I always try to support students by being aware of their needs and also how much/little feedback they should be receiving in each situation.



~ I am experienced teaching the following ESL topics ~

+ General English: Beginner > Advanced
+ Academic exam preparation: IELTS, FCE, CAE, TOEFL, PTE, etc.
+ Business English: meetings, interviews, presentations, resumes, job applications, email/report writing, and general communication with work colleagues.



~ Testimonial ~

I have taken English lessons from several teachers but Richard is definitely the best. He tries to understand your needs to organize a tailor-made lesson for you.

If you want to learn English or improve your language level learnding with Richard is the right choice!

~ My Vision Statement ~
Help my students achieve their personal & career goals, while improving their English language.



~ My Ethos ~
+ Authenticity

+ Humility within all interactions



~ My Core Goals ~
Help my students:

+ Secure a satisfying career
+ Find inspiration within themselves
+ Improve personal & professional time & project management skills

I've known Richard for years as an exceptional teacher and friend. I met him when I was a newcomer to Australia, and he was one of the first people to make me feel truly welcome. He has a fantastic ability to break down complex topics and always provides plenty of encouragement. I'd recommend him to anyone who wants to better themselves and achieve their goals.

Richard not only possesses the aptitude in teaching and tutoring, he also dsiplays the personality, thoughtfulness, and hardwork ethic that is required in this profession, I cannot think of a better person able to to connect properly with his students whilst providing the learning experience that is expected in Australia. Highly recommended!

Daniel

I've known Richard for about 12 years. Over that time we have shared a lot of ideas and knowledge with each other - he even taught me juggling and Diabolo. Over those years Richard has always proven to be very attentive and amazingly patient when teaching. Your learning becomes his personal goal - and he does not stop until it is achieved!

Danya

Richard is professional but very easy to talk to and he seems to genuinely love teaching. His grammar knowledge is excellent and he is great at correcting mistakes when we are speaking. I particularly like the way he tailors the lesson to my needs. I highly recommend him!

Anderson

I'm a student from Italy. I've been having classes with Richard and I must confess that he is the best English teacher I have ever had! Besides being well prepared with IELTS exams, he also has a solid historical and cultural background. He is equipped with useful teaching material and his lessons are carefully prepared according to my needs and goals. Once the lesson is over, he regularly sends me notes and corrections from the lesson. In short, I don't think it's possible to have better teacher than him. Super approved !!
Thank you Richard!

I have known Richard for over 20 years and I can say that he is very professional and dedicated to helping others.

He is a very passionate teacher and always takes the time and energy to assist our friends when they need it.

I would highly recommend Richard as either an English teacher or professional coach.

Richard is great! He's attention to detail, enthusiasm, and ability to describe complex subjects simply is very helpful.

Maria Isabel

I highly recommend Richard as an English teacher. He is a great teacher who encourages students to study or practice outside the lessons. I consider him a disciplined person because he has always shared his notes with me and tracks my progress while learning English. I also recommend Richard to Spanish native speakers since he has large experience correcting the common pronunciation mistakes we usually make.

Nick

Richard is an awesome teacher. He is patient, thorough and obviously loves what he does. He has helped me a great deal!

C
Craig

Richard has taught me a great deal about juggling and prop manipulation. Richard has tutored me in Diablo and 3 ball Juggling. Richard is a great teacher, he has a great sense of what my next step should be. I recommend Richard as he is able to break things down into small increments, which makes learning really enjoyable.
