Personalised Tuition in English: Reading, Writing + ESL

(8 student reviews)

I teach English to school-age students (preschool to tertiary) and adults. My teaching qualifications and experience include: grammar, reading comprehension, writing composition, early reading (phonemic), spelling, English literature, and EAL/D (ESL) skills (reading, writing, listening, and speaking).

Teaching hours: Tuesday to Saturday, before and after school, during the day. School holidays by special arrangement.
Location: At my home where I have resources that facilitate learning and allow for flexible, personalised teaching. Zoom is also available.

Please contact me by phone or email to discuss lessons.

Each student is unique. I work to identify individual learning styles, assess strengthens and weaknesses, and develop a responsive plan. By applying scientific, evidence-based practices, and plenty of encouragement and feedback, I help students to develop the skills and confidence necessary to communicate in English wherever their interests take them throughout their lives: at school, university, in the workplace, and in our communities.

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

I am an excellent, well-qualified teacher in both written and spoken English. My experience extends to teaching and talking with people whose first language is not English. This includes people from Japan, China, Taiwan, France, Germany, Spain, India, Thailand, Vietnam, Chile, Sudan, Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Israel, Egypt - from all over the world!

My interests include: reading, writing, literature, history, Latin dancing, walking, and ballet.

I enjoy being able to actively support anyone who seeks to learn at any stage in life.
