I am available to teach English to individuals and small groups Tuesday to Saturday, before and after school hours, and during the day also.

Lessons are at the office in my home where I have access to resources that facilitate learning and allow for flexible, personalised and effective teaching. I also travel to locations that are within 10 minutes drive time. Zoom sessions are available.

Please contact me by phone or email to arrange a short interview to discuss lessons.

My expertise lies in my friendly support and careful attention to each student so that I may identify individual learning styles, assess strengthens and weaknesses, and develop a personalised individual plan. I believe that the application of evidence-based practices results in sound language proficiency. This is how I encourage students to develop comprehension skills and the confidence to communicate in English: at school, university, in the workplace, and our communities.

I use language-rich texts and work with each student to instill in them a joy of daily reading and writing, speaking and listening.

I am an excellent communicator in both the written and spoken word. I have experience in teaching and talking with people whose first language is not English: people from Japan, China, Taiwan, France, Germany, Spain, India, Thailand, Peru, Argentina, Chile, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Israel, Egypt - from all over the world!

My interests include: reading, writing, literature, history, cultural studies, research, and thesis development.

I am passionate about learning at all levels from primary through tertiary for all children and adults.
