Personal Description:

I live in Melbourne with my wife, daughter and son, and a mischievous dog called Kiki. I enjoy water sports and cycling. I love teaching, especially newly arrived immigrants who I try to give the best start with the language of their new country. I also volunteer in a homework program for high school students.

Tuition Experience:

I have taught EAL (ESL) English for 20 years. Currently I teach in a government primary school for newly arrived immigrants. I have taught EAL at all levels of primary school, and secondary to year 10. I specialise in literacy skills (Reading and Writing) but I also teach aspects of speaking including pronunciation. Previously I taught for 10 years at universities.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to ensure that students have the best approach to their study, making sure they understand how best they learn and what they need to get the best results. I help students develop good strategies, with a focus on making meaning in English. I can also provide the technical knowledge students need to achieve excellent scores, particularly with genre writing. I work hard to make learning fun and engaging.
