Freedom and humour are two of the most important things for me, both in teaching and in learning – these are the memories I find most humbling looking back on my own school experiences. The relationship between student and teacher is equally important and there needs to be space to allow for it to take place.
I specialise in helping people take enjoyment in learning Arabic (and make the most their time if they are thinking of travelling to the Middle East). My approach is flexible to the student. Arabic is a difficult language until you can begin to see the building blocks that cement its foundation – I enjoy helping students see and understand these nuances that are often breezed over in traditional learning environments.
I'm interested in encouraging students to poke around a bit and see language in a different light: one where there's perhaps less structure and more fluidity, less necessity and more spontaneity.
I have always had a love for language. I started learning French at the age of three, German at thirteen, Arabic and Spanish at eighteen. My love has taken me to France twice for study and many times thereafter for holiday and work, and the Middle East.
I've worked across a range of disciplines: photographer, writer, copywriter, editor, translator, teacher, designer. This past year I've spent writing a novel (based very loosely on my experience at primary school). I love the snow, books and films mostly from Japan and Hong Kong.
I studied and completed year 12 at Preshil, the Margaret Lyttle Memorial School. Afterwards, I went on to complete a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Melbourne, with majors in Literature and Arabic. I went on to do a Diploma of Languages at IFPO (Instutut Français du Proche Orient) in Beirut, Lebanon, as well as further studies at the school of political science Sciences Politiques in France.
I’ve worked previously in Paris as a professional translator and copywriter and editor, as well as in the Middle East where I worked between French, English and Arabic. I currently have been living and working in Melbourne for the past five years, moving between editing, copywriting and tutoring. This past year I've spent working on a book, which is loosely based on my experience at school.
I've greatly enjoyed the time I've spent with Beau. The classes are relaxed and enjoyable and I've gotten a lot from each one. He's able to make even the most insipid grammar rules interesting and fun to understand!
Beau is a vibrant personality. Eager and passionate, he works well and efficiently with people of all ages and levels. He is patient and caring in his approach, I would recommend him to any student
