Hello! My name is Alex, I am from Melbourne and I am passionate about helping people to achieve their academic goals. I currently work as a qualified English Language Teacher and I provide tutoring services specialising in:

* Pronunciation, Grammar, Writing, Reading, Listening

A little bit about me:

I currently work as an English Language Teacher, teaching IELTS Exam Preparation and Upper Intermediate classes in the heart of Melbourne's bustling CBD. I really enjoy my job, facilitating the learning of my students who aspire to improve their English language skills and thus also, their futures. I feel that I have good rapport with my students. While I can observe their learning needs and plan classes accordingly, I also encourage feedback so that student's education can be tailored to their needs.

I have the skills and experience necessary for you to achieve the English skills that you desire. Not only am I a qualified English Language Teacher, I have also studied to a great extent and over the years, I have also tried to perfect my communication skills. In 2016, I wrote an 18,000 word thesis in less than a year and I learnt the difficulty of self-expression through writing and critical evaluation of many academic texts. I feel that I have first-hand experience dealing with the communication problems that many of us face and thus an understanding of what may be helpful to learners with regards to improving their communication.



I have had four years of experience tutoring and teaching English Language classes. I have a friendly manner and always endeavour to meet student's needs through classes that are dynamic and tailored to a student's level.
