I base my teaching methodology on modern methods that we use in classrooms such as sustained practise of reading and analysing a wide variety of texts, answering questions as per assessment criteria, writing texts using the set structure, using prompts, visual aids, analysing graphs and research data and intensive coaching on all aspects of grammar and vocabulary (SPAG).
I am a Primary school teacher with 10 years of relevant teaching experience across four countries namely Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and Singapore! I also have considerable experience in teaching english to speakers of other languages. My target students are those taking the NAPLAN, BSSS or IELTS (Academic) Tests. I use proven methodology to improve reading and writing such as visual prompts, prior discussion, language structures, critical analysis etc
For students who live more than 10 kms away and desiring home tuition will be charged $35 per hour.
