Do you have a personal message for students?
As an IELTS, Academic Skills and English Language instructor with almost 20 years experience in teaching and teacher training, I quickly achieve a rapport with my students.

I am a diligent teacher who uses the data from informal and formal formative and summative testing to address individual problems and develop learning objectives and approaches to best meet those unique needs. Any work that is required, can of course be partially dealt with during class feedback/forward, and I encourage learners to negotiate a learning plan with me so as to deal with the individual learner type and to engender a sense of ownership and autonomy among the learners.

Unique and personalised feedback is something I provide learners at all times. I encourage learners to critically think about their own performance and try to elicit problems and solutions.
