Personal Description:

Hi everyone. I am Scott and I am from Northern Ireland in the U.K. I'm 28 and have been teaching English as a Second Language for two years. Previous experience has been in Vietnam and I currently teach at a language centre in Melbourne in the evenings. I have a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in History and have a Certificate IV in TESOL. I have extensive experience teaching students in schools, language centres, universities and privately, assessing many different needs and learning styles. I have also taught (and currently teach) specialised courses such as Business English and IELTS. Before I became an ESL teacher, I worked and volunteered in various museums in Northern Ireland, taking tours and conducting and assisting in workshops. I'm a friendly, approachable and patient teacher who likes to make lessons engaging and fun whilst focusing on quality education. I am a travel fanatic and have been introduced to many different cultures and ethnicities. My hobbies include photography, exercise/sports, music, movies and learning Spanish. I possess a Working with Children Check so I am legally cleared to work with children in Australia.

Tuition Experience:

I have a Certificate IV in TESOL, a Master's degree in Cultural Heritage and Museum Studies and Bachelor's degree in History. I have been teaching English as a Second Language for over 2 years in a variety of locations including Vietnam, Australia and online. I have extensive experience across different curriculums and settings. These include public and private schools, language centres, universities and private lessons. In addition to General English, I have experience teaching IELTS and Business English.

In addition, I have worked and volunteered in museums in Northern Ireland where I led and assisted in history-themed workshops. I am educated to Masters level in History related subjects and would be more than happy to offer tuition in this (and related) subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a friendly, approachable and patient individual who likes to make students feel at ease. Despite promoting a relaxed and comforting environment, I will limit my own talk time in order to maximize the student's. I endure to make my lessons fun and engaging but also educational and learning focused.

A typical ESL lesson will begin with a brief and friendly chat with my student about how they are and what they have been doing since the last lesson. This will then be followed up with a fun, discussion based warm-up activity such as a role play. We will then focus on a lesson topic, which will incorporate a variety of skills such as Speaking, Listening, Reading, Writing, Grammar and Vocabulary. The end of the lesson will involve a review of the content learned and the assignment of a (short) homework task.

History tuition will be more ad-hoc but will still involve the fundamentals of my approach to tuition. These lessons will involve teaching and reviewing relevant material and assessment via quizzes and essays. Essay writing, critical thinking and debating skills will also be focused on for high school/university students.

Rates include time taken to plan a lesson (catering to your individual needs) as well as preparing handouts and other materials.
