English as a Second Language or Remedial English
Teaching Experience for English

I am a highly qualified Australian teacher of English as a second language and have more than 15 years experience teaching ESL. I have also worked as a Director of studies, co-ordinator of English programs and curriculum developer.
I hold a bachelor of linguistics, post graduate qualification in teaching English as a second language and also a qualification in adult literacy.
I like to make my lessons interesting and fun and have a holistic approach to lesson planning. With my qualifications and experience I am well prepared to teach English to any second language learner and am particularly equipped to help with specific problems such as accents, pronunciation and understanding idioms and Aussie slang!! I can also assist with remedial English for those needing a little extra help with their native language. 😉

Teaching Experience for Spanish

I am primarily a teacher of English as a second language but after spending time living in Spain some years ago I decided to make Spanish my second language and as such I studied Spanish and Latin American studies as my double major in my Bachelor of Linguistics which I graduated from in 2004. In the past 10 years I have been working as an education consultant counselling spanish and Latin American students who wish to study in Australia so I have both the theory and the practice in the Spanish language.

Teaching Experience for ESL

Language is such an important tool in expressing one's thoughts, ideas and emotions as well as being an invaluable asset in any field of work or study if handled well. Having taught English as a second language for 15 years to students of all ages and nationality backgrounds I understand the differences and difficulties of different language learners, especially in relation to accents and pronunciation.
I can help you with specific language genres and work based language tuition where necessary (eg. Englishfor business, english for nurses, etc), in fact any area of the English language you need help with!

Teaching Experience for IELTS

Preparing students for the IELTS examination has been part and parcel of my 15 years teaching English as a second language. I can help you vastly improve in the 4 core areas: speaking, listening, reading and writing and support your studies with lots of training and sample tests till you achieve your desired score.

Teaching Experience for Spanish dance

I am an experienced flamenco dancer having had over 10 years of technical training in studios in Sydney before moving to Melbourne and eventually forming a duo with a flamenco guitarist, also with many years of experience, creating my own choreography and visual art.
My love of flamenco started in the studios of Antonio Vargas back in the early 90's and continued in the south of Spain (home of flamenco) whilst there in 1991/92. Although I've had breaks from dancing due to other life commitments, my passion for the dance never died and I kept returning to the exciting rhythms of flamenco! In 2012 my guitarist and I formed the duo Flamenco Andaluz and we continue to create new choreography and perform at special events.
If you would like to learn a bit about this passionate and expressive dance, then I can take you through the steps of this complex art form. Ole!
