As a Cambridge CELTA certified teacher with Cambridge TKT, I follow the approach of Cambridge's Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) to teach Business Studies and Marketing Communications / Branding / Advertising. I have worked in the marketing communications sector as well. So, I blend industry experience and education together. My ethnicity is Asia and I have taught students from all over the world. My students are professionals and college/university students from various countries who are focused in different sectors such as sales, marketing, manufacturing, media, export-import, Intentional Business etc. In small groups they learn and use in real-life their knowledge. I also teach Academic English to higher education students. I also have taught school students various subjects related to Business Studies. I assist students for IELTS/TOEIC exams and for research publications. [My IELTS score - 9 out of 9 in Academic writing. Overall band: 8/9].
English is a second language for me and my accent is mostly Asian English. I have successfully proved myself as a Cambridge qualified teacher. As an Asian-origin Australian citizen with UK residency I can blend the Western and Eastern study approaches uniquely. I understand the hidden needs of the students due to my own teaching exposure worldwide.
