I am a highly professional, results-driven teacher with experience in the development and delivery of English language programs to a wide variety of clients encompassing diverse backgrounds and varying proficiency levels (beginners to advanced), and including young students to business professionals. My qualifications include a 120-Hour TEFL Certificate and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Philosophy and Political Science. I have also been a Financial Adviser for over 6 years. I am a compassionate teacher, who remains sensitive to students’ needs, employing effective listening and providing individual support, offering positive encouragement and reinforcing to keep students focused and motivated. I have helped many students to pass the IELTS exam with scores of 8 and over on a consistent basis. I have helped many young learners to develop their English reading and comprehension proficiency and conversation skills. I research, incorporate and locate a variety of resources to accommodate students via visual, audio, tactile and kinaesthetic methods. I also integrate modern technology in my lessons as a means of providing opportunities to deepen the knowledge. My goal is to foster and maintain an open, honest, communicative and supportive classroom, in which each student can feel secure and appropriately challenged.
