    Experience / Qualifications

    I am a qualified English teacher with a CELTA (Cambridge Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults) qualification. I have taught English in Sydney, Bologna and Paris to students aged between 8 to 82 years old. I have taught both private and group lessons. Through my first-hand experiences teaching elementary and upper intermediate levels at Sydney's IH English School, I developed expertise in imparting lessons to an international and culturally diverse group of overseas students in an effective and engaging manner.

I also excel at clarifying relevant aspects of meaning, form and phonology for learners to an appropriate degree of depth to ensure comprehensive understanding of new language items.

    English literature, language, comprehension, and fluency.

I also like to make classes fun and exciting for the learners.

    Leer piano, muziekcompositie, en/of Engels in een ontspannen sfeer
    Ik geef pianoles aan studenten van alle niveaus en leeftijden. Mijn doel is om de leerling student uit te dagen maar niet te overweldigen. Ik geef theorie les ook tijdens de piano les, en geef ik ook theorie huiswerk. Ik maak individuele afstemming van manier van lesgeven op de behoeften van de studenten. Daarbij ben ik ook componist/singer-songwriter, dus als je wilt je liedjes of muziekstukken verbeteren, kan dat ook heel goed doen. Ik kan ook Engels lessen geven. Ik heb een jaar ervaring als leraar voor Engels als tweede taal. Ik vind het heel leuk om mensen te ontmoeten en hun Engels te verbeteren!
