Hello, my name is Serena and I am Australian. I live in Adelaide, which is the capital city of South Australia. I have a passion for learning and teaching foreign languages and have studied both French and Japanese at school and university. I hold the degree of Master of Teaching English as a Second Language from Flinders University in Adelaide.
I lived in Tokyo, Japan for about nine years and worked at a large corporate law firm called Nagashima Ohno & Tsunematsu for most of that time. While living in Japan, I visited many places all over Japan including Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, Kyushu and Okinawa. I have also travelled to 54 countries and territories on six continents.
I have been teaching English on SkimaTalk since March 2016 and have taught many students of all ages, levels and abilities. I look forward to helping you improve your English language skills and abilities on SkimaTalk, and seeing you achieve your goals in English. Speak soon!
I can help you practice and prepare for your online VERSANT test.
Let me know what topic or expertise you would like to be able to talk about well in English. I will help you increase your vocabulary and expressions related to that area. I can also provide a range of interesting topics for us to talk about in free conversation sessions to improve and challenge your speaking skills.
I can help you practice and prepare for your IELTS speaking and writing tests.
I teach all levels of business English from beginners to advanced.
