Bio:

I have skills and experience as a music teacher to children and adults, and as an early childhood educator, which I implement in teaching english. My teaching practicum with an online school in China gave me experience with primary aged children. My methods are eclectic, creative, musical, and I support Cambridge English.

My teaching methodology:
  • Assessing english levels and discussing students' goals
  • Implementing the cambridge english methods and following the european framework guidelines
  • Music, games, movement, songs
  • Visual methods to explain word meanings. eg photos, drawings
  • Story telling ( including autobiographies), literature.
  • Conversation about familiar topics, hobbies ,interests, life.
My teaching background:

I completed my online praticum, teaching Chinese primary aged children. I gained skills in developing student's skills in reading, pronunciation, writing and speaking. I have six months experience teaching adults. I have been teaching beginner to advanced level students from Asia, the Middle East, Brazil, Latin America, and some European students. I also teach business english for professional development. I use music and songs to teach english: SOME EXAMPLES- *I discuss song lyrics, eg. metaphors in lyrics, grammar in lyrics and lyric meanings *I sing songs with students, eg. familiar songs to them, and I introduce new songs. *I play the piano (songs and instrumental music) (classical, jazz, contemporary styles, world music) *I have conversations about music, mood and emotions *I write lyrics with students and compose melodies.

My background outside of teaching:

I have prepared children for piano exams. I enjoyed teaching classical and contemporary piano to children and adults. Developing students' musical aural skills was important, eg. recognising and playing different rhythms, notes and sounds. Storytelling and singing were my favourite activities when I worked in preschools. There are many beautiful books and stories written by Australian authors. I worked as a diversional therapy assistant , planning activities for eg. people living with dementia.
