ThaliaPersonalised English Lessons by a Qualified English Teacher
As a native English speaker with a Bachelor of Education and a Cambridge CELTA, I have 10 years of experience teaching English in New Zealand, Australia and the U.K and a wealth of experience teaching English to foreigners in whole class, small group and one-to-one settings.
I have taught children as young as 5, through to teenagers, adults and seniors. In any case, I adjust my teaching and learning to ensure my approach suits your needs and preferences. I am able to strike a balance between challenging you to grow and supporting you through your mistakes.
I specialise in personalised English programmes, which means I work out exactly where you are, where you want to go and how you like to learn and then I tailor a program to suit your specific learning needs.
I am able to teach English speaking, listening, reading, writing, spelling, phonics, punctuation and grammar. I will tailor all of the lessons to suit your interests e.g If you like art, I will help you to learn English through the topic of art and if you like sport, I will help you to learn English through the topic of sport.
I will assist you to improve your pronunciation of spoken English and I can assist you with audio and video recordings of each sessions, so you can review the class at your own leisure.
I will help you to develop your understanding of spoken English in authentic ways by listening to film, television, radio and podcasts, as well as engaging in conversation between the two of us.
I will support you to develop your reading, writing and speaking skills through supported practise and lots of opportunities to build on your existing vocabulary.
I will aid your spelling, punctuation and grammar through shared and independent writing activities, which will be both interesting and relevant.
Following each session, I can provide at home learning tasks and progress calls, or emails between sessions if you would like, plus I have a range of online services that can assist you to develop your English at home at your own pace.
**As I conduct tailored lessons for each individual student, I only have a limited availability each week. As a result, I must prioritise my ongoing students who require one-to-one sessions weekly, or twice weekly. If you are interested in developing your English rapidly in an engaging and fun way learning from a committed teacher with a high success rate, please contact me to see if I have an available slot for you.**
