Profession: English Teacher, Cambridge Examiner, IELTS Instructor, Corporate Trustee Director
Teaching Experience: ** Due to my hectic schedule, please note that, as of 2 August 2017, I will only be answering callers that have a confirmed reservation. Please accept my apologies in advance for any inconvenience caused **
I am a Cambridge Examiner / General English & IELTS teacher, from Brisbane, in Australia, with 12 years' experience in mentoring students of all ages and of distinct ability levels. I am also the director of an Australian Registered Training Organisation (operating under the umbrella of the Cambridge University) that provides instruction to students preparing for Cambridge examinations, such as IELTS, CPE, CAE, FCE, PET and KET.
Some of my career highlights include teaching EFL at a private Cambridge academy in Spain (Andalucia), at a private university in Portugal (Porto) and at public schools in both Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh city) and China (Xi’an). My teaching experience also includes ESL/LOTE (Languages Other Than English) instruction in Australia (Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne), New Zealand (Christchurch) and USA (Miami). I have cooperated with large companies such as Princess Cruises, Global LT and Kaplan.
As far as my online experience is concerned, I have been collaborating with a Chinese online company in the capacity of both English Teacher and Education Consultant whilst partnering with another two North-American websites.
Educationally, I possess postgraduate degrees in the sectors of Adult Language, Literacy and Numeracy (Charles Sturt University) and Tourism Management (Lincoln University). My certifications include a 150-hour internationally-recognised certification in TEFL/TESOL, a National certificate in Early Childhood issued by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) and a certificate IV in Training and Assessment. My bachelor’s degree is in Business.
Some of my favourite units are English for specific purposes, English for children and exam preparation courses.
