Experienced ESOL/TEFL teacher offering private English lessons in person in Christchurch or online using Zoom throughout NZ

Methodology

I start with a free initial consultation of around 30 minutes to assess the English level of my students and to discuss their immediate needs and goals. I also use this time to show potential students my teaching methods and sample lessons. Then after the consultation, lessons are scheduled usually one or twice weekly.

Experience

I am an experienced TESOL/TEFL teacher offering private lessons to children and adults needing to improve their English at work, school, or social environments. I can also help with preparing for IELTS exams. I offer help with Grammar, Pronunciation, Vocabulary and Comprehension. I tailor each lesson to best suit my students individual needs.

PROFILE
I am a qualified TEFL trained teacher. I started out on this new career path in 2019 and gained my qualification online (see certificate attached) I have been tutoring students from home for the past year and have been enjoying my new occupation immensely. I am now looking for ways to tutor students online. This could be within New Zealand or to overseas locations depending on compatible time zones
My main fields of experience before I qualified as a TESOL teacher were; website production, TV production and Desk Top Publishing and Wildlife Conservation. I also worked as a tutor and lecturer at Auckland University during my time there where I obtained my Master’s Degree in Environmental Science (First Class Honours).
I changed my career path because working from home suits my lifestyle much better. I am also looking for a way to find ways to earn money that is independent of my location.
