English (Foreign Language)
Hello, I'm a Kiwi and I love helping people find confidence to speak English and improve their communication. I enjoy working with people from other cultures, learning about their dreams and goals and sharing my knowledge of Kiwi culture and society.
I am a quiet, friendly person, a grandmother who enjoys music and handcraft, cooking and sewing, dancing and gardening. I'm a private counsellor and a practicing Christian.
I have eight years experience helping learners at all levels, in both New Zealand and Chile. I spent two years in Chile teaching English and learning Spanish so I understand some of the difficulties of learning a language as an adult.
I studied with English Language Partners and Literacy Aotearoa and have gained a Certificate of TESOL Studies. a Home Tutor certificate, and a National Certificate in Adult Literacy and Numeracy Education.
Are you a baby bird, wanting to be fed, or a hunter, always looking for new ways to reach your target? I believe learning should be interesting and fun sometimes but always challenging so if you are willing to make the effort, I will guide you along the way.
Do you want to practice everyday conversation, how to understand Kiwis, or you need to write emails and reports for work?
I work with learners to identify goals, individual needs, and learning styles. I provide materials and activities, videos and games, I direct you to useful websites for your own learning, and I give direction and lots of encouragement.
