Face-to-face and online tuition from a qualified and registered tutor (ABN 68 397 423 515) at excellent rates!

Both individual and group classes are available.

The first lesson only $20 ($25 for north of Harbour Bridge and $30 for south/west of Bridge).

I taught English at the American Language Academy (ALA) in Madrid, Spain in 2015, but I am now back in Sydney. Students at ALA included adults from a variety of backgrounds, such as architects, logistics managers, lawyers, hotel managers, and engineers to name a few. Prior to this, I also offer private tuition to a variety of students, particularly for General Science, Maths General, Spanish and Italian.

Whilst most of my experience is with teaching adults, I have also taught younger learners too. I hold a current and valid NSW Working With Children Check.

-Lessons emphasis high student engagement through speaking (especially pronunciation) and listening exercises, with some grammar and elements of reading and grammar games.

-I prefer to assign reading and writing tasks for homework to practice between lessons.

-Lessons are tailored to meet your needs and/or interests.

- I use materials from a variety of sources, including books, newspaper articles (print and online), magazines, songs, etc. For foreign languages, I have produced a vast amount of resources that have been checked by native speakers.

Lesson structure (flexible based on student demands):

- 5-10 mins max warm-up and quick revision
- 3 x 15 minutes activities to study content, focusing on one grammar point at at time, not to overwhelm students with info.
- 5-minute revision exercise of lesson's contents.

I am passionate about providing students with the best opportunity to learn and utilise the language/knowledge both inside and outside the classroom, especially for the latter; applying this knowledge outside of the classroom will facilitate the learning speed and overall process.
