Hi guys! Are you wanting to advance your oral and written English language skills but lack the confidence, resources, and expertise required to get you to where you would like to be? Well, I'm here to help. During my lessons you will feel empowered, supported, and be provided with the necessary tools to begin, continue, or even simply refresh your English language journey.
I am a fully qualified senior high school teacher of English and Media Studies and have been teaching in New Zealand for the last four years in a full-time role. Before this I was a tertiary writing consultant at my university and completed a short period of English tutoring in the Czech Republic between study. I completed my degree in English and qualification in education at Massey University and the University of Auckland respectively. Once again, I've been bitten with the travel bug and am looking forward to getting back into teaching in my current destination: Cancun, Mexico.
As a self-reflective teacher I understand that teaching and learning is a continuum and, as such, my pedagogical vision and practice is always changing. My ever-evolving practice is informed by the latest theories in education, evidence-based research, and practical experience in the classroom. It is important to be adaptable and this is reflected in my pedagogical approach, which strives to meet the individualized needs of the learners I am teaching. I welcome learners of all abilities to book a lesson with me and I look forward to supporting you on your journey.
