Sydney tutor in English
, Essay Writing, IELTS, Reading
Hello and welcome to my profile!
My name is Sonia. I am passionate about teaching. By accommodating your learning style and objectives, I will design your lessons so that you feel you improve your English skills with every session.
I specialize in areas that are traditionally considered as challenging by many foreign students, such as English conversation and developing the ability to sound natural and think in English (without translating). Having learned English as a second language, I am in a better position to understand the learner's challenges than native speakers are.
If you need help with IELTS test preparation, you are in the right place! I have been through preparing for both the Academic and General IELTS test myself. I have developed an approach how to markedly increase a band score for each part of the test over a short period of time. I got a band 8 without outside help.
Having a background in both engineering and business and experience working for commercial organizations, I will be happy to help you with writing or editing your resume, cover letter, and job interviews.
I started teaching English casually, helping my university friends who struggled with understanding English in their business and law classes. Later, I coached international students for job interviews and English tests. Seeing my students improve and achieve their language goals was inspiring. My interest in teaching English grew into a full-time passion, and now I devote myself fully to teaching. I develop an individual approach to each student.
I have completed two degrees in Australia, both with Distinction, and always have a quality approach to any project:
Master of Business majoring in Accounting at The Australian National University (Canberra)
Master of Engineering Science (Telecommunications) at Victoria University (Melbourne)
