Personal Description:

I am a mature woman, a NZ trained teacher, with over 35 years teaching of ESL and special needs and all levels of English study for NZ curriculum or exam entry to NZ universities. I am a mother of 5 and grandmother of 5. I live in Hamilton city but I also teach via Skype or social media. I love to help all kinds of students of all ages to become successful in their own way. I have had many international students living in my home.

Tutoring Experience:

I am a highly motivated teacher, who wishes for all students to excel in literacy. I give strategies to help you work independently at your level and pace.
I can teach via skype or email or face to face.
In Primary, my classroom experience is with Junior Years 1 and 2, and Year 6 and other classes in many different relieving teacher positions in NZ schools.
In Secondary, my experience is in Junior High English and ESOL classes and NCEA remedial students.
I can teach all aspects and levels of the English curriculum as well as creative art and social studies.
In other areas, I have taught students who need IELTS or TOEFL to enter university or gain residency to NZ.
Also, I have taught students already underway at university, at every level, in editing essays, forming their thesis and teaching of strategies for exams.
My ESOL training and experience are in all areas, ages, ethnic group, situations and educational needs.
I have experience in teaching NCEA, IELTS and TOEFL exams as well as business studies.

I have lived in South Korea for 3 1/2 years teaching at a NZ staffed primary school and as a High School English teacher in a Foreign Language High School.
I have also lived in Western Samoa 1 1/2 years teaching English.
I have taught my own 5 children as a home-school for 6 years.
I am trained as a SPELDNZ teacher.
I have taught nurses and police officers as well.
I have also volunteered as a teacher in many fields.

Tutoring Approach:

I definitely use a student centered approach by teaching exactly what the student needs which is sometimes at odds with parent's expectations.
I will help you succeed with whatever this student needs. Every student is different so I believe different approaches need to be decided for each student.
I use strategies and techniques to help the student find the easiest way for them to learn, not necessarily what a certain book says.
I often use language activities and educational games to practise memory retention and to warm up to the learning.
My strengths are in motivating students to succeed by using time management, check-lists, informal assessments, creative planning and delivery of lessons.
