My experience involves teaching a range of levels and ages of international students, both in Australia and overseas. I have taught a variety of levels from Beginner to Advanced, General English, EAP, IELTS and Cambridge
Have worked in Japan, China, and South Korea. I enjoy seeing students become more confident in their language abilities.
I have worked in a number of industries and organisations. As a result of this I can offer my students a broad range of skills and experience. This 30+ years’ experience has encompassed diverse industry sectors both locally and internationally.
I always endeavour to see from the students’ point of view to pass on my experience, skills and knowledge in a supportive, positive manner whilst at the same time keeping the learning fun and enjoyable for the student to understand.
I have over 6 years of experience as an Educator, Lead Educator, Second in Charge and Kindergarten Teacher at long day care centre and independent kindergartens. My role as an Educator is to help children reflect on their actions and make appropriate choices.
I started my career in Japan where I taught adults and children for 6 months. I have been teaching in Australia for the past 13 years. I worked at GEOS language school on the Gold Coast for 7 years, as a teacher and then as the DoS for the last 3 and a half years. When GEOS closed, I began working for Shafston where I have worked for the past 5 and a half years.
I have mainly taught adults and often to prepare them for higher education. I lived and taught in the United States, England, Italy, Japan and Korea.
I had worked in Tokyo, Japan for one year and Taipei, Taiwan for one year before coming to Shafston to teach.
