Esperienza di insegnamento: I taught English to adults, children and high school students at a community college in Taiwan, children at English camps in the winter in South Korea and summer in southern China, and for a term to students at the Teachers College university in Fuyang, China.
I teach Scottish Country dancing to children. In my job as an accountant I assist university students with their coursework, and recent graduates with applying their learning to accounting and tax.
Interessi: My main interest is Scottish Country Dancing. This keeps me fit, allows me to meet people and listen to music at the same time. I love walking in the bush and on the beach. For quiet times I do craftwork. My present hobby is painting with Batik dyes which I buy in Malaysia. I love to travel overseas when I am able.
Istruzione: I went to school in New Zealand. When I was an adult I worked in an office while I studied for 11 years for a Bachelors degree. I have 2 certificates in TESOL. One was gained by written coursework. The other was for practical and actual teaching, and understanding other cultures. This course included modules in Computer Assisted Learning, Business English, Teaching English to Children and Grammar. I have also a short course certificate as a Tutor in Adult Education.
