Native English speaker from Australia with Bachelor of Journalism, Masters in English Education & Diploma of TESOL/TEFL

Methodology

I scaffold lessons to include pair and group work, and engage students by recognising diverse learning styles whilst incorporating movement to help improve their accuracy and fluency across key skill areas.

I strive to support students’ social-emotional well -being as they develop their English language skills and deepen their global awareness.



Background

Formal qualifications include a Bachelor of Communications degree majoring in Journalism and Creative Writing and a Certificate IV in TESOL. I have taught English in Taiwan and tutored Sri Lankan refugees here in Australia.

My experience includes teaching beginner, intermediate, and advanced students of various cultural and linguistic backgrounds in Taiwan, and Australia.

Through my teaching experiences and TESOL studies I developed critical pedagogic and classroom management skills, along with a passion for teaching English.
After living in Taiwan, I understand both the excitement and the challenges that accompany learning a new language and living in a country other than my own.

My teaching experience also extends to conducting a school enrichment program with Buderim Mountain Primary School. Over a 3-month period, I taught Year 5 & 6 students the process of writing, producing, and staging a musical theatre production, which culminated in a performance that showcased the knowledge and experience the students gained.

In addition, as a freelance journalist I have a strong portfolio of published written work that can be viewed via my blog: in viewing my blog, an insight into my personal writing style can be obtained.

I feel my strong literacy skills, experience in ESL teaching, and personal life experiences will be an asset when conducting classes. I am well qualified and I can assertively assist students to build confidence in their ability to achieve, both academically and socially.
