Service areas
Brisbane CBD, South Brisbane, WestEnd, UQ St Lucia

Being tertiary focused, I coach adults in English exam preparation (IELTS, PTE, FCE & CAE), and academic writing for university assessments. Services include assessment planning, support, proofing and feedback for a wide range of degrees as well as guidance on job applications, interview preparation, resume writing, presentation skills and report writing for business professionals.

I have attained the highest award as teacher, am a teacher trainer and curriculum designer, and also have educational management experience as the principal administrator = I'm very educated and experienced! I have a very calming manner and an engaging wealth of materials.Renowned for teaching academic competency and English test taking, experience has largely been focused on Academic English (EAP, test prep, TESOL, study skills) Business English & Management as well as General English (ELICOS, AMEP, VET).

Our session content will be negotiated and suited for your particular learning style and desired outcomes, with the flexibility to be face-to face, blended, online or simply to correct online submissions in a timely manner.

In order to improve as quickly as possible I will provide you with fresh writing, grammar, reading & listening tasks and additional study materials outside of each meeting so that the majority of our time together is spent on feedback and coaching.

***IELTS CANDIDATES BANDS 6.5-9.0 ONLY *** I also deliver specialised, interactive workshops in IELTS WRITING (General and Academic), Grammar and Reading, focused on high band scores only in South Brisbane. Cost is $30 per hour to join the class (This is not private tuition). You are welcome to join at any time and attend casually, with sessions available until to mid-December 2018. At present these workshops are scheduled on Wednesday afternoon-evenings and Sunday daytime.

Please feel free to message or call me on 0481313172 with any questions or to arrange a class. I prefer to meet in the CBD or South Brisbane, but can travel at an additional cost. I am usually available Sun-Thurs daytime and weeknights. Other times can be negotiated. I look forward to meeting you and gain great satisfaction from seeing my clients achieve!



As teacher I have attained the highest award with reputable providers in Universities, TAFE as well as private ELICOS and EAL tertiary institutions. My clients have included university students, international students, new migrants, refugees, local youth, student teachers and business, education and health professionals.

I'm very experienced in IELTS / PTE / FCE & CAE preparation and test taking strategies as well as the ISLPR, IELTS and CEFR rubrics. I have published educational resources online and in print which are still in circulation today and have authored nationally accredited curriculum.
