I recently launched my new language-tuition website, More details and a few free print-outs are provided there. Otherwise, here is a summary:

- Qualified EFL tutor, trained at Australasian Training Academy (

- I focus on ESL/EFL and Italian tuition, but also offer tuition for other subjects (list as shown on my profile).

- Several years of experience in teaching both adults and older children (mostly over 13).

-My lessons are student focused, with emphasis on speaking and listening exercises, with some grammar and elements of reading and games applying the knowledge obtained in class. However, I can easily tailor the lessons upon request.

-I prefer to assign reading and writing tasks for homework to practice between lessons to maximise class/lesson time.

- Home visits that fit within your timetable and all teaching materials provided.

- I use materials from a variety of sources, including books, newspaper articles (print and online), magazines, songs, etc. For foreign languages, I have produced a vast amount of resources that have been checked by native speakers and content that has been cross-checked with other reputable sources to ensure high-quality original materials are used without any copyright infringement. Notwithstanding this, I am also happy to use published books that have been purchased by a student as well.

I am passionate about providing students with the best opportunity to learn and utilise the language/knowledge both inside and outside the classroom, especially for the latter; applying this knowledge outside of the classroom will facilitate the learning speed and overall process.



I have over four years of tuition experience, both for tutoring individuals and groups
within a classroom setting (up to seven people).

The majority of my classes are teaching students within small groups and business
English. Students from the aforementioned professions generally consist of private

I have also previously taught Italian, Spanish, Maths and Reading (in English).

"My wife and I choose Anthony as our Italian tutor from many others and have never been disappointed in our choice. He is extremely prepared each week with sessions customized to our interests. We will travel to Italy in a few months and we are already feeling much more prepared to "palare italiano" with the locals there. He is punctual, polite, patient and just plain fun to work with. I give him my highest rating as a truly professional tutor. Jim Burke"
