Personal Description:

Hi, I'm Laura. I'm currently teaching General English (ESL) in the city and love to do tutoring as well. I've lived in Melbourne for just over 2 years now, having moved from the UK. I'm really enjoying Melbourne so far and especially like being able to wander about outside in the sunshine! I love keeping fit and also enjoy cooking and reading. I have been a teacher since I graduated from university in 2011 and love the job. My interest in travelling and having met so many interesting people whilst away is what converted me to ESL teaching.

Tuition Experience:

I taught English in an English mainstream high school for four years, teaching 11-18 year olds English Language and English Literature. I taught things such as creative writing, reading for meaning, analysing the writer's craft, grammar and speaking. I prepared four classes for their exams, two at GCSE level and two at AS/A-level.
In terms of ESL teaching, I have taught Beginner, Elementary, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate and Upper Intermediate General English.My classes have ranged from consisting of only five students to over twenty. Again, I have taught reading and listening for gist/specifics, speaking/presenting and writing creatively/essay writing.
As for tutoring, I have provided one-to-one tuition for over fifteen tutees now. Some of these have been young school children (aged 6-11) needing help with literacy; some have been older school/college students needing help with their VCEs and some have been adult learners. With my ESL tutees, I have helped with preparation for both General and Academic IELTS.

Tutoring Approach:

I am happy to travel to tutees' homes, meet somewhere public or tutor in my home. Material is provided by me unless tutees have specific tasks requiring attention. Sessions are tailored to tutees' individual needs and I aim to make all sessions as engaging as possible.
As well as tutoring, I am happy to help with proofreading of assignments.
