I have had extensive experience of designing and running IELTS courses for both the Academic and General Training examinations. As well as this, I am familiar with the skills and techniques required to assist students who are intending to take the Cambridge main suite of examinations (FCE, CAE and so on).
While living and teaching in Korea, I delivered several English for Academic Purposes courses, designed to prepare students for academic life in the UK. The content of these courses included Academic Writing, Presentation Skills and Participating in Seminars and Discussions.
During my time working at the British Council in Seoul, I delivered a range of Business Communication courses at several different levels. I also conducted training sessions to Korean teachers of English, covering such topics as task-based learning, and different approaches to reading.
I believe in a learner-centred approach to the classroom that includes a variety of teaching methods and ideas, including variations on task-based learning. I am a dynamic and enthusiastic teacher who is able to continually generate new ideas and approaches in order to improve my classroom skills and to help you progress faster.
I look forward to helping you achieve your goals!
