Experience

I am and Australian-born, native English speaker and trained Australian English teacher recently relocated to Kuala Lumpur. I have both tutoring and teaching experiences within Australia and Malaysia. I have teaching experience in Australian Secondary Schools teaching English and English Literature to secondary students. I have extensive knowledge teaching a range of secondary students in British and Australian curriculums. I have coached and prepared students for English exams in particular IGCSE English – First language (0500), A Levels English Language and A levels English Literature. Throughout my teaching experiences I have developed teaching and learning skills to guide all students to analyse literature, write comparative essays, creative writing – poetry, narrative and short stories, academic essays and literary analysis in a well formulated manner. I also have the proficiency and experience to mentor and prepare students through university foundation studies courses as a means of preparation for academic writing, essay structures, research skills, citing and referencing academic works, note taking, tutorial/university discussions and presentation skills. Lastly, I have experience-preparing students for IELTS exam in both Australia and Malaysia. The main skills focused on throughout IELTS exam preparation are; Writing: techniques in persuasive, argumentative letter, report writing and essay structure. Reading: scanning, skimming, visualization and comprehension skills. Listening and Speaking skills: building vocabulary, confidence and clarity while speaking and responding to questions. I also have experience coaching general, business and academic English skills in all areas of reading, writing, listening (conversational) and speaking. 

Tutoring Approach

My aim as an educator is to create in my student/s a deep understanding and confidence in speaking, writing, reading and listening to the English language. My teaching approach and techniques is catered to each individual student/s needs and learning styles. My teaching approach is allowing and encouraging students to enjoy learning English and to think for themselves, using real-world examples in approaching the English language. I believe through setting mutual high expectations with student/s high results are achieved. I start from understanding the strengths and weakness of student/s and build on their strengths as a foundation for learning. With exam preparation I forus on past/example papers, this allows the student/s to work through and become comfortable with reading and understanding exam questions and formats. I give great emphasis on the vital skills of reading, writing and speaking such as essay structure and technique, scanning, body language, logical thought and confidence.

MA Languages and Literature (with a focus on teaching)

Experience

I am an American teacher with 9 years of experience and am passionate about teaching both American and British English to a wide range of learners, from beginner all the way to advanced and IELTS preparation. I have also had experience teaching French in the classroom and as a private tutor. I speak two other languages and know what types of challenges language learners face and will help students overcome them.   I look forward to helping students build their confidence in learning a second language.

Tutoring Approach

Making lessons educational yet enjoyable while allowing students to feel at ease while learning is a top priority. Students will have the opportunity to work on grammar, writing, listening, speaking, test prep and also are welcome to ask for help with classwork for other classes.   I'm also available by e-mail, Whatsapp and Skype and am always happy to assist any of my students outside of class for quick questions because life happens and people sometimes need help when unexpected things happen! Lessons are tailored to the student's needs and are conducted at a quiet coffee shop in Ampang Park, which is a convenient location for most people in the Kuala Lumpur area.  Please contact me with any further questions.

Degree in Civil Engineering from Japan, JLPT N1

Experience

i lived in Japan for 7 years before. I have one year experience of teaching Japanese at Japanese language center. This has probably been most important part of my life in terms of informing what I find to be meaningful and important work. I also have experience on teaching  English to Japanese students. Once you know someone better, you can help her learning on something better. Since my very first teaching session I've grown not only as a teacher but also as a person. I am not only a teacher to them but a friend and sometimes even an inspiration.

Tutoring Approach

I use a book that is easy to use for the beginner. I believe that the more time you spend hearing Japanese, the more comfortable you will become with the sounds of the language. The more comfortable you are with the sounds, the better you'll be able to identify and comprehend whole words. Every minute in the classroom is a minute spent practising Japanese - and the best thing you can do when you are learning a new language is practice, practice, practice!

Education

Diploma in Automotive Technology

Experience

I have been a private tutor since September 2015. I focus on English Literature as it was the subject that most confident. I don’t have a specific teaching style, my teaching style would depend on the student itself. I attend both Primary and Secondary School at the Kuala Lumpur Alice Smith School, a British International School that implemented the Cambridge Edexcel syllabus. I went to further my studies at The Otomotif College; after completing my GCSE examinations and a year of A-levels.

Tutoring Approach

When it comes to new students, the first lesson will always include simple exercises involving both tutor and student. By doing this, the student will settle down quicker and becomes less anxious when it comes to classes; at this stage, it is also an opportunity for both tutor and student to get to know each other. The next step will be a 90 minutes past paper test. This gives me a rough idea of the studentís strengths, weaknesses and time management when it comes to examinations. Teaching is never an easy job; especially when it comes to handling young children. A private tutor has to be very patient and must put ego aside; not all tutors can do this. Being an open minded individual with experience handling young children in the past as a sitter, I have learned to be patient when it comes to handling a young child. Motivation is important when it comes to education, if the child is not being motivated, then the child gets bored and becomes lazy. By rewarding good behavior and putting effort into their work, it makes the child push that little harder. That being said, I also believe in discipline and punishment should a child misbehave or are disobedient. Therefore should a parent disagree with my methods, I am not the tutor for you.

Bachelor's Degree, CELTA

Experience

Since 2012 I have taught English to Malaysian secondary school and college students as well as adult foreigners from China, Taiwan, Vietnam, and several other Asian countries. I have completed the CELTA course at the British Council Malaysia where I learnt the latest communication-based teaching techniques for better English learning.

Tutoring Approach

From my experience as a tutor and language learner, I understand the main problems and difficulties faced by people learning English. When things are not clear I can explain in Cantonese, Mandarin, Malay or simple English. Depending on your needs and the level of proficiency you want, I will tailor-make a personalized plan towards achieving your goals based on your motivation, strengths and weaknesses, and what you currently know. Whether you need it for an exam, practical everyday use, social communication, or business, I can help you improve your English and confidence in using the language.

ESL Teacher

Experience

I taught English in Korea for 2.5 years. I taught at two elementary schools and also tutored children and adults of various levels. I tutored beginning level students as well as prepared advance level adult students for their TOEIC exams. Prior to my time in Korea, I worked in after-school programs tutoring elementary students in all subjects as well as working part-time at a preschool.

Tutoring Approach

I put a lot of time and effort into making my tutoring lessons engaging and effective for students. With my younger students and adult groups that I tutored I would start with the grammar topic for the lesson and brief worksheets to practice using that new grammar. Then for the remainder of class periods I would have activities and games prepared in order to further practice the grammar in fun and effective ways.

PhD in Educational Psychology, CELTA

Experience

I have gathered extensive teaching experience throughout my academic years working in Europe, the United States and now Asia. Regardless of the subject, whether psychology or languages, my aim has always been to optimize the teaching by focusing on the needs of the individual student. I have taught numerous students from different nationalities and of a wide range of ages. Recently I have obtained the CELTA certification which allows me to be an even more effective and efficient English teacher.

Tutoring Approach

After an initial meeting in which we determine what the student needs I draft a lesson schedule and make the general lesson planning. Then I start to plan each individual lesson but leave flexibility to make adjustments as needed. Students will feel that the pace and challenges are based on their needs which ensures optimal learning benefits. I always show a personal interest to try and make students feel more comfortable and motivated. My tutoring techniques are very student-centered and based on their preferences and needs I will use a variety of Visual, Auditory and multimedia materials.

Experience

I am a tutor with Masters Degree and I have tutoring experience both at tuition centres and home close to 9 years. I am fluent in Bahasa Malaysia and English Language. 

Tutoring Approach

For Primary and Secondary students An assessment on students' capability, strength, and weakness will be made during my 1st class. After initiating this, I will plan my lessons to prioritize students' weakness and enhance their strength. I believe that students don't just require the knowledge on what to study but instead on the attitude towards how to study because only interest towards studies can push a person to his/her goals. A balanced of good studying attitude and proper knowledge will definitely excel an inidividual. At every month end, a student progress report will be produced to parents for a brief discussion on what has been covered and areas of improvement for student. I am aapproachable and open to any suggestion for self-improvement.    For computer related sujects I provide 1 to 1 classes for MS Office (MS Word/MS Excel/MS Power Point), Computer Basics classes, and tutoring classes for students from Universities and Colleges who are on IT or Comp Science field. I also cover thesis preparation.
