A little about me :
After studying East Asian Politics and Human Rights in 2009 and achieving a 1st class in my MA I decided to go and live in China for a year teaching English. Since then I have worked in the Italian Dolomites and the Spanish Pyrenees as a mountain guide in both the summer and the winter. I am in the process of applying for a nursing degree and hope to work abroad for organisations such as MSF and the VSO.
I offer stimulating lessons to students of an intermediate ability and above. I use a simple sequencing technique that can be applied to most levels and topics. My goal in to improve confidence and fluency with less of a focus on accuracy for the majority of the lesson. Imagine putting the microphone down after an hour and thinking : ' Wow, I just had an hour talking with a native English speaker about the reputation of New Zealand students'.
I can tailor a lesson to suite your goals. Generally I focus on speaking, questions and answers, natural conversation, follow-up questions, debate and argument. A small portion of the lesson focuses on grammar explicitly but any grammar point touched on is used throughout the lesson until it becomes natural.
I look forward to talking with you.
