DETAILS: PERSONAL TEACHING & TUTORING EXPERIENCE / TEACHING PHILOSOPHY / TUTORING APPROACH / TUTORING SESSION OPTIONS & TUITION RATES If you want a competitive and professional edge in developing your English language, reading and writing, and communicative skills, then read on. I have over 13 years full time experience as a university teacher of English Language and Study skills for international students at The University of Adelaide. In that time, I have tutored individuals and class groups totaling well over 400 students, helping each one to build strong study and language skills and transition successfully into the University of Adelaide in a range of programs. All in all, I have 20 years experience teaching in various capacities both locally and internationally. I am a Specialist writing and editing instructor who will diagnose your learning needs and can tailor a program of personally tutored studies for rapid improvement in all skill areas listed on my profile. My educational philosophy is very much centred on the learner's experience and engagement with language in a communicative context. I also strongly encourage individual practice outside of tuition hours to enable skill areas to strengthen. When you work with me, we work as a team because I monitor your progress closely and professionally with regular feedback and recommendations. I also supply hard copies of learning materials according to your pre-diagnosed needs so that when we meet the next time you can gain the most from your time. I am flexible to travel to your home, can meet on an education campus / local library, or can be consulted in my own residence at Happy Valley in the southern suburbs. My personal CV and reference contact links are available on request. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss your needs and how I can personally help you meet your goals and strengthen skills.
