Professional English as a Second Language teacher with a Master of Publishing, Bachelor of Arts (English) and a Teaching English as a Second Language post-graduate diploma.

Methodology

I have a passion for the English language and love being able to help my students get a firmer grasp on their own linguistic skills. I have experience with academic and course-based English classes, but I prefer to teach with a focus on my students' needs and interests. I conduct my sessions professionally and with purpose and organization, and I always come prepared. I conclude with a summary of the session including things to work on going forward.

Background

I am a professional English as a Second Language teacher with a specialization in adult education. I have experience working as an English teacher, professional and freelance editor, and academic writing tutor. I have a Master's degree in Publishing, Bachelor's degree in Arts (English), post-graduate diploma in Teaching English as a Second Language, and two certificates in French as a Second Language.
