I have experience working in various roles in the TESOL industry, both as a private tutor and as a teacher in a school.
As a private tutor I work mainly in Melbourne, Australia, and also online. My students are usually studying at university, either as undergraduate or post-graduate students. I have prepared them for IELTS tests and presentations, as well as proof-read and corrected their essays theses. Many of the students already have a fairly high standard of English.
As a teacher I worked for several months in a school in Sri Lanka. My work involved preparing and delivering lessons for many different age groups and levels of English. There appeared to be an excellent rapport with students and teachers alike.
I teach both grammar-focused and communicative lessons. I also teach accent reduction, IELTS preparation and proof-reading. My teaching has been very successful with children, but much of my teaching has also been with older, experienced students.
