As I offer my services to a wide range of students, ranging from adult ESL learners to high school students, my teaching methodology is flexible and tailored to the particular needs of students. I always strive to make lesson material accessible and interesting to students.
I am a professional freelance English language editor with previous experience working in large media organisations as a copyeditor. I also have previous experience working as an ESL teacher for young learners. I have a Bachelor of Social Science degree and have also had numerous pieces of writing published in a range of media outlets.
