Second year Medical Student provides English lessons to high school and University students in Melbourne

Methodology

My teaching methodology is not only about reading texts and answering questions. I believe that it takes real life scenarios and visual learning to be added towards my teaching methods. For example, we may read a text and correct the grammar in a 'written' format, however we can also discuss ways of how to use this written language into everyday spoken language and what vocabulary may be appropriate to use in conversations. Often there is a gap between what we read on paper and how we speak or approach conversations, and it is necessary to target both aspects to improve English competency overall.

Background

I am currently a second year Medical Student at Oceania University of Medicine, and I have previously graduated from a Bachelor of Health Sciences degree (Hons.) from the University of Auckland in New Zealand, and Monash University in Melbourne. English is my native language, however, I am bilingual and can speak Bengali as well. I am also a disability support worker and continue to contribute to the multicultural youth advocacy space outside of my studies.

Rates

Travel Fee : $10
Rate for online lessons : $21/h

Details

Travel charge may differ depending on the distance to meet with student. If there is a cancellation, at least 24 hour notice would be the best.
I am very understanding and know there are many circumstances in terms of money and work/life balance that can be affected during student life. I do not want the student to hesitate to talk to me about other arrangements that are better suited to them (e.g. change of times/locations).
