Incredible ESL/EAL teacher with loads of knowledgable experience in Australia and overseas.

Methodology

Hi my name is Damien and I am a qualified ESL/EAL teacher with 10 years experience instructing in Australia and overseas. I spent the good part of the 2000's in South America, Chile, Argentina and Brazil where I taught 'one on one' and 'group classes' to students of all ages and business executives. My classes are aimed at uncovering a students weakness and enhancing their strengths in grammatical, written and conversational English. I will endeavour to help you reach your goals and set you in the right direction to perfect your English.

I have a Certificate IV in TESOL and a Certificate IV in TAE
