My early teaching was based within English Language Schools across multiple countries but over the past ten years have been teaching at university level. I base my teaching on the needs of my student(s) and the objectives that they have. This covers general university entry, improved vocabulary and academic writing skills, and enhancing academic reading skills. Online teaching is different from face-to-face experiences, so many students are assisted in managing this new learning environment.
I have been teaching English for more than 20 years in New Zealand, Australia, China and the UK - and preparing non-English speaking students for study at universities in English-speaking countries. I have taught across all skills in EAP ensuring that graduating students are more confident, better writers and readers, and ready for their university study. I have been an IELTS examiner and have trained ESOL teachers in the past.
