Retired English Professor Offering Writing and Language Acquisition Tutoring Lessons in Tauranga

Methodology

My teaching method is often dictated by the pace and comprehension set by students. Overall, I believe in an open-exchange forum that freely allows for the expression of thoughts, ideas and opinion. I see myself more as facilitator than teacher.

Experience

I have a degree in secondary education and French and have taught overseas at the High School and University levels for a total of almost 25 years. I have had hundreds of students and have enjoyed the experience of teaching.
