Su di me

Hello! I'm a friendly Australian, but with an accent that is close to British.
I specialise in:
- Business English (I teach in companies in Berlin), and
- Academic English (university academic advisor in Sydney universities).
- Conversation techniques (lots of great speaking exercises).
- IELTS (IELTS speaking examiner experience)

I have been teaching English to adults for 12+ years. I think you'll find my lessons fun because you will learn by DOING. My experience learning German means I understand what language learning is like for you.
My lessons will save you time as I give learning tips from my experience.

I am fully qualified: a BA (Hons), Graduate Certificate in TESOL in Teaching English as a Second Language (university CELTA equivalent), Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and a Master of Arts (writing).

Because I'm experienced I can see your errors quickly, then find effective ways to help improve and give study tips to suit you.
