My name is Michael and I am an English Instructor with a CELTA from Cambridge University, training from the British Council to teach IELTS and training from University of Melbourne's Language Testing Research Centre and by Cambridge Assessment English to teach the OET exam.
As an educator, I believe there is more involved in teaching than just imparting knowledge. Firstly, it is my firm belief that providing assistance in how to use what has been learned in a practical way is a necessity and secondly, one must have an invested interest in their students continued progress and success
So, what can I do for you? I help students in the following ways:
• Identifying student’s purpose for learning English, for example, work purposes or education, and assisting them to achieve their intended goal as best as possible.
• Pinpointing areas of specific difficulty they have with the English language and providing practical ways to overcome them.
• Ensuring students are able to have a well rounded ability to use the English language, through a balance of reading, writing, speaking and listening activities.
I bring with me, experience of teaching group classes and 1 to 1, both online and in classrooms across all levels, from elementary up to advanced, A1 to C2. I have tutored over 100 students including, medical students, medical doctors, lawyers, other language teachers of both French and English, chemists and even a NASA consultant from Finland.
It would be my pleasure to work with as you work towards full fluency.
