Degree qualified and highly experienced English language teacher in Lockyer Valley/Toowoomba region

Methodology

I seek to create opportunities for the students to talk in English about things that interest them. This will show them that I am interested in what they have to say and what they like. I seek to maintain a positive and encouraging atmosphere for these experiences to take place and don’t mind getting off track temporarily, since we can always get back on track later. My overall goal isn’t for the students to learn scripts or how to answer questions correctly; rather, I want them to feel comfortable with spontaneous, authentic communication in English.

Background

I taught English in many countries for over 30 years - Mexico, Spain, Italy, USA, Ireland, Australia ... I am a qualified interpreter and translator and speak Spanish, Italian and French fluently. I also have a good knowledge of German, Portuguese, Latin and Gaelic.
