Hi my name is Jeremy and I am a qualified language instructor based in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. I am a passionate, patient and professional tutor who is generally available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays after school.
I enjoy tutoring because I have freedom to employ a method which I find far more effective in helping students learn a language than what is normally used in schools. An additional reason I enjoy tutoring is the chance to spend quality time building a relationship with the client and catering specifically for his/her learning needs, which is almost impossible in a classroom environment.
My method of tutoring is based on the Michel Thomas Method, a proven approach to language learning that focuses mainly on building a learner's confidence and understanding of a language's structure through interactive sentence building. I always aim to put a student at ease by taking complete responsibility for any mistakes. If requested, I can provide supplementary worksheets and useful links to various online resources.
For German, I teach all the way from beginners to advanced level. I tutor ESL for intermediate to advanced students, and will in the future be undertaking training in preparing students for PTE exams. I also tutor French from beginner to intermediate level. My preferred age group is from high school upwards and am willing to travel up to 10 kilometres from home to a convenient location. Any place which requires a single trip of more than 10 kms will however incur a $10 surcharge.
I graduated from the Melbourne Graduate School of Education's Master of Teaching (Secondary) program in 2013, and completed a CELTA certificate in August 2018.
If my profile has caught your attention, I hope to hear from you soon and help make language learning enjoyable and attainable!
My first tutoring gig was for a student from Scotch College studying German and Chinese, I then tutored a student for VCE German at Mount Waverley Secondary College. While in London, I tutored a female office worker in German and French, and a GCSE student in French. Since returning to Melbourne, I have resumed tutoring in German and have also tutored students in VCE ESL.
