Masters in Teaching English as A Second Language. Have experiences of tutoring both English and Chinese.

Methodology

Throughout the course I did with my Masters degree, we were taught teachers need to tailor the class/lesson depending on the students' needs, such as the purpose of learning, etc. So as there are various methodology I can list on here, I'd say I will see what are my students' goals and their level of the language and then go from there. The most important thing is to make the lesson enjoyable and the students are comfortable while learning.

Background

I just finished my Masters in TESOL at Flinders University. I used to teach Chinese to British when I worked in UK, and have experiences teaching English to people whose first language is not English back home and in Australia.
