Patrick Simpson B.Comm. MBA.
English Tutor. Southern Suburbs of Melbourne
Degree qualified and experienced tutor for all levels of English, but especially for English as a second language. Specialises in helping you learn English for your Australian education course, including secondary school and university. My goal is to allow you to understand your teachers and lecturers, write good essays, and to be able to communicate clearly with other Australians and English speakers. I can also help with your English and problems in other subjects.
Small groups and individuals only to give personal attention. Lessons can be at your home, or a range of other local venues. Hold working Working With Children Card.
To learn good English, your tutor and teacher must:
â» Speak good English themselves, as a first language
â» Speak clearly and slower than other people so you can hear and understand
â» Be patient, understanding, and realise that your own language is very different
â» Know the rules of English
â» Know that the priority of English is clear communication
â» Know how to help you learn, and to keep the teaching interesting
â» Be able to make the teaching relevant to you
â» Be available at a place and time that suits you
â» Understand your culture and differences, and respect these
â» Be able to change the lesson to suit your needs, not just follow a curriculum or plan
Patrick offers these and much more with over 20 years experience teaching English. He has been very successful because he understands what his students need to learn, what their weaknesses are, and helps them improve whether it is their grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, or even just listening and understanding.
He is a very successful tutor and teacher of English, including as a second language. He has a Bachelor and a Masters degree, and previously worked teaching at university.
He believes in making the learning fun and interesting to you so that you can enjoy it and learn more quickly. The teaching will include reading, writing, listening and talking, and improving all of these. Lessons can be at your home, online, or at a choice of places.
Patrick is mostly retired after working at university, in business and in the government. He now enjoys a life writing, with some tutoring and teaching to a select few students who appreciate and value how well he can help them to talk better than an Aussie. He believes in that you save money by paying well for quality, and that it is simple. Ask yourself, âDo you want to learn English?â or save money and learn slowly.
He specialises in helping overseas students learn and improve their English to communicate better, and to pass exams and tests as well as to talk easily to Australians and others every day. He teaches individuals and small groups only, for a personal and focused learning situation. He specialises in helping immigrants and students adapt to Australia English, but learn far better quality English. But in his lessons, he can help you with your other subjects as they are all using English.
Teaching is tailored for each student by looking at what you need to improve, not by following the same lessons for all students. Perhaps you need more help with pronunciation, new words, Aussie slang, comprehension, grammar or sentence structure. The lesson will focus on where you will use your English, learning words useful for you, and interesting for you. It will focus on improving your problems, not on what you are already good at.

"He is a very good English teacher. Speak clearly and know your weaknesses. I was struggling to pass my ELC until did his lessons."
