B.Sc Physics, Ph.D Geophysics,...
B.Sc Physics, Ph.D Geophysics, Cert TESOL
I am a native English speaker, holding a B.Sc in Physics from the University of Manchester, an M.Sc and Ph.D in Geophysics from the University of Leeds, and a CertTESOL from Trinity College London. I worked in industry for more than 20 years before switching to teaching full-time. I have experience of teaching teenagers and adults ranging from pre-O-level students of English in Thailand to undergraduates and postgraduates in geophysics at the Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand. Key tuition subjects are: Maths, Science (general, Physics, Chemistry) and English (general, academic, business, and IELTS/GMAT/PTE/TOEFL prep).
My approach to tutoring is student-led, with classes being tailored to the goals and needs of the individual learner. I am passionate about science and I firmly believe that anyone can understand it when it is explained in a way that is appropriate for them. Because of this, I take time to get to understand the strengths and needs of my potential students before I agree to take them on. Once we have agreed a teaching framework, I plan tailor-made lessons for the individual learner that are relevant and interesting. I am a native English speaker and have learned several other languages, so I empathise with the challenges faced when learning English as a second (or third or fourth!) language. Language needs to be relevant, personalised and communicative for learning to be effective. All my language lessons are planned individually with these three aims in mind. As a life-long learner myself, I am familiar with the pressures of trying to balance classes around other day-to-day obligations, such as school, work or college. I understand the need for flexibility, but ask for advance notice if occasionally classes need to be rescheduled.

PhD in Educational Psychology, CELTA
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.
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.
