Teaching and motivating learning is my specialty, empowering students to reach their full potential.

My name is Tim, I'm an English teacher from Melbourne, Australia.

I'm a certified Cambridge CELTA English as a second language (ESL) teacher with over 5 years English teaching experience in both a school and a tutoring setting. I have taught in a school who's method is based on complete linguistic immersion and comprehensive language acquisition. I also have a professional background in contemporary dance and behavioural therapy so I can tailor my lessons with more accuracy.

From my experience, motivation and creating a fun and comfortable environment in class is the key to any effective learning experience. I learnt a few other languages such as Spanish & French so I understand what it takes to learn new languages. In each of my lessons are personalised a will cater completely to the student's reasons for learning English and their interests.
