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 am a creative and dynamic teacher that is immediately able to establish excellent rapport with students to ensure they are fully involved in all learning activities. 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.
