bio:
My classes are both engaging and entertaining. They have a particular focus on enabling the students to sound as much like a native speaker as possible. I place a high importance on this aspect of my lessons as many students have not had much, if any, exposure to native speakers. With an open and honest approach, I am able to help students overcome their shyness and communicate with confidence.
what should you expect from my classes:
I like to use current affairs, music, film and conversation in my classes. This helps in learning to use English in a natural way. Expanding vocab with collocations, which also helps with grammar in a natural way.
my teaching background:
I am an Australian EFL teacher who is currently in South America. For the past year, I have been working and living in Peru. I specialise in training students for international exams such as FCE, IELTS and TOEFL, but I also teach a range of other classes including Intermediate and advanced.
my background outside of teaching:
Before becoming a teacher, I spent numerous years in the mining, construction and hospitality industries. I have worked on gas plants, bauxite and various other mines. However, my interest in other cultures has always been present, as evidenced by my work on frequent indigenous housing projects.
