Hello, I'm Stephen. I am a native English speaker from Australia.
I teach conversational English. Lessons can focus on grammar, pronunciation and other communication skills. I can also proofread essays and help with academic writing.
I have taught students of all ages and levels. One of my major aims is to help all students gain skill and confidence in using conversational English.
My experience includes several years in English tutoring and academic proofreading in Australia and England. I majored in Ancient History (including ancient languages) with Macquarie University in Australia, and I took Politics as a minor.
I am married, and my wife is a native Mandarin speaker who has taught Chinese and English in Australian high schools for over a decade.
I like to make my lessons both interesting and profitable, and some students have had over one hundred lessons with me. Here is what some have said:
“[The students] really enjoy talking to you and they also feel much more confident speaking English! Thank you for your help!” (a Russian contact).
“Your method is very helpful for Chinese students” (“Victor”, China).
“He can lead the conversation smoothly with various questions . . . Thanks to him, I can practice English really well. Also, I feel that my English speaking ability is getting better” (“Vicky”, Korea).
“Your proofreading is awesome” (Min, Korea).
If you wish, we can arrange to have a free 30 minute demonstration lesson. After this the cost is $20 (USD) per hour, or $10 per half hour. Discounts are available for multiple bookings, and payment can be made via PayPal, credit card, etc.
I look forward to helping you improve your English! If you would like to ask any questions, feel free to send me a message:
