This is how 2 referees rated Paul:
English (Foreign Language)
I am married to a Japanese and my mum is from Holland, so I understand well about the challenges of learning a 2nd language (Dad is NZ-born, I also). I follow sport as my hobby and I like old movies.
My son is 17 and nowadays he is more interested in computers than me…
2000-2002: ESOL in Japan for the Japanese Government on the J.E.T. program. In the Nagoya area (Ichinomiya City)
2002-2018: Teacher of the Certificate in General English Proficiency at ICL Business School (Lorne St, Auckland). Afternoons only at ICL since 2014- I have been focusing on my tutoring.
I majored in Primary School education originally, and did some relief teaching on the North Shore of Auckland before going to Japan in 2000.
Three simple steps: I need to know… 1. Exactly what the student needs me for.
2. A timeframe for how long they need lessons.
3. What their final goal might be by the time we finish the lesson program.
These steps are absolutely vital. I understand how important it is for the student to make good progress with their time and money. The student should feel relaxed, but I always take my role seriously.
My personal approach is to be responsive and friendly at all times!
