I can definitely help you. I work face-to-face on online platforms including zoom/google docs/hangouts/skype and even facebook video.
Please let me help you to stay on top of your studies and upgrade your English communication skills.
My experience has been in the classroom, work place, university, small groups, and in an online environment. I am very serious about assisting the Tutor Finder online network of students who are looking for an online tutor to help them with their particular needs.
I can use all of my teaching skills with students wherever you are.
For me, here is nothing quite like being able to focus on your needs and help you achieve your goals.
I am a passionate teacher of spoken and written English and have had many happy years developing my skills and expertise. I am currently teaching in classrooms, workplaces and universities and have online students from Australia and countries in Asia.
Certainly, the very satisfying one-on-one experience I've had over the years working with students needing teacher patience, guidance and advice is useful in the online environment.
My particular areas of expertise are high school English assignments, exam preparation and workplace English up skilling.
I look forward to working with you and developing the skills that you need to help you reach your English communication goals.
So, how can I help you? I can by developing your skills in - Speaking, Reading, Writing and Listening
- understanding assignment requirements - planning, preparing, structuring and writing all forms of writing for high school, workplaces and universities.
- editing written work - speciality - university undergraduate and post graduate research papers for publication
- knowledge of and planning for IELTS - IELTS task 1 and task 2 writing tasks
A specialty area of expertise for me is editing.
I have enjoyed and been timely in editing academic and professional submissions for publication in a variety of fields including education, mining and the social sciences.
Do you need to improve your reading skills and develop strategies for faster and more effective reading? I've worked with many, many students who struggle with reading and this experience has given me the opportunity to develop knowledge of how to assist in this much needed area. IELTS reading is a particular area of need I have found.
As you can see my focus is on your needs so my methods of teaching are guided by this principle. I plan and structure the lessons based on what is important to you in the short term and to build long term strategies for future study and super effective communication.
