Master your English, PTE or IELTS through an experienced teacher in Melbourne

Methodology

I believe every student is different and hence my methodology is student-centred driven. Lessons will be prepared and adapted based on your needs. They will include theory (grammar rules, word choice and writing conventions) and lots of practice to master each skill. I will provide exam tips to help you maximise your scores.

Background

I have been teaching English, PTE and IELTS for over 40 years to a diverse group of students in China, Malaysia and Australia. I have a good track record of successful students. 80% of my students get through their tests and achieve their band scores with just a few lessons.
I have co-authored an English textbook currently used in Malaysia, and authored several grammar books and coursebooks. I was also a lecturer at three teacher training institutes in Malaysia for 15 years specializing in TESL. I was also commissioned by Pearson (Malaysia) as a consultant for its English publications and the LDOCE dictionary and designed a workbook for its dictionary. I hold a M. Ed (UK).

Phaik is an amazing English teacher.Not only she gives useful tips on how to achieve your desired scores but she is extremely knowledgeable,dedicated and committed towards her students.To achieve PTE 79+,I have had intensive few months of classes with her where I learned various ways of expressing ideas in a logical way and so on which I can utilise in future.She also provides latest IELTS/PTE materials which is definitely worth to practice.I am very thankful to her for helping me towards the right direction to get my score.Overall,her high command in English makes her one of the greatest teacher I have ever known.
