Areas Of Study
Whether you are looking to improve your everyday conversation skills, pass the IELTS examination, prepare for a high school scholarship examination or enhance the skills needed in a business setting, ESL tutor can help you achieve your goal.
Online tuition is offered for all areas of study. Tuition is offered in two forms.
Full video conferencing lessons are delivered via Skype, Zoom or FaceTime for 1 hour. These lessons are ideal for students seeking to improve their speaking and pronunciation.
The personalised self study option is ideal for students seeking to improve their writing, reading, spelling and grammar. A personalised selection of work will be allocated to the student via e-mail, once returned it will be corrected and a 10 minute video conference will be arranged to discuss the work.
Whether you need IELTS to upgrade your qualifications, to enter university / TAFE or to obtain your Permanent Residence in Australia, I can help you achieve your required band score.
You will receive a free Speaking and Writing assessment at your first lesson, so that we can find out exactly what your areas of weakness are.
All materials (there are lots) are included in the fee – including sections from a book I have written on T1.
