TEACHING EXPERIENCE

EXPERIENCE Hello, I began my career as a high school and TESOL trained teacher in Sydney. I taught ESL, EFL, literacy and numeracy for more than 20 years locally and overseas before now working as a Learning Designer. I believe these careers tie in nicely - enabling me to synthesize a range of skills to create online learning resources. I also continue to teach privately on the iTalki and Verbalplanet sites.

While most of my experience has been in adult education, I can see that some of my resources may be transferable to other subject levels. Or modified to suit your area. My teaching experience has included helping migrants and refugees understand the culture and society that they live in as well as language teaching. My resources reflect this. I have also supported students in vocational training and academic courses.

The free resources give you an idea of the file types, style and some of the content. The purchased resources have a lot more language content, interactive quizzes and activities. Please read through the description and instructions and let me know if you have any questions about the resources.

A lot of my resources can be used in a flexible manner, both online digitally and printed. I’m experienced with a number of eLearning tools such as the Adobe Creative Suite including Adobe Captivate, Smart Notebook, Flipbooks; LMS platforms such as Moodle and Canvas; blogs, and other eLearning Authoring tools such as Adapt learning. I can easily pick up on how to use a new tool to create a beautiful and informative resource.

If you would like one of your resources in a similar format to the ones you see in my store, please contact me via TPT or my site. Prices negotiable.

I believe in lifelong learning and sharing what I have learned. I’m currently tutoring adults and children online and I also enjoy volunteer teaching when I can.

Thank you to all the silent purchasers. If you have a moment, please rate me and leave your comments or send me a message. Remember that you earn credits for every rating and comment that you provide. They would be most helpful in helping me improve or get an idea of what you like. RECENT VOLUNTEER TEACHING IN BHUTAN: I did some volunteer teaching in a rural school in Bhutan. I wish I could have given more so I've started a fundraiser for the school. If you can kindly donate, please go to gofundme funds for a rural Bhutanese school

Thank you for checking out my store.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I aim for engaged learning and language learning in context. I use UK/Aus English.
