I’ve been a teacher for many years, specialising in language: English as a Second/Additional Language; Italian; French. My background in languages, linguistics and education, is ideal for teaching Spelling, Writing, and Reading comprehension, for all subjects.
My experience teaching English as a Second Language covers work in Australian, as well as South, and South-East, Asia.
My background in Italian and French includes a Bachelor’s Degree (honours), as well as living and studying in Europe.
Formal studies in my subjects, as well as in educational theory and practice (a Graduate Diploma of Education, a Graduate Bachelor of Education), has been very rewarding. But it is the practical work of teaching individuals and groups that is most satisfying. And above all, discovering just what the learner needs, to be most successful in his or her learning.
I have completed several courses covering the latest research and practice in teaching school-age learners Spelling, Writing (essays, reports, etc.), and Reading Comprehension. These courses were completed through the Dyslexia/SPELD Foundation.
A strong background in language and linguistics, many years of practical teaching experience, as well as on-going professional development, are a solid grounding for teaching and developing ESL/EAL, Italian and French; as well as developing and improving Spelling, Reading and Writing, for all subjects.
I would be pleased to hear from you to discuss your particular learning needs.
MY LOCATION, COSTS AND AVAILABILITY!
