About me*$4 Only* Greetings! My name is Rowan and I’m a Native English speaker from New Zealand. I have over 5 years of experience teaching “Conversational English” to international students, young professionals, ex-pats and refugees to whom English is a foreign language (ESL). I also have an IELTS (International English Language Testing System) certificate from the UK as well as, an accredited 120 hours TEFL Certificate. I’m an avid believer of progressive unorthodox forms of teaching as suited to my client. Each client is different and I plan my teachings around their comfort and understandings in order to ultimately help them in fulfilling their goals. My coaching methods are exclusively 1-on-1 with 100% confidentiality in a fun, interactive and relaxed setting. :) What my clients can expect from my lessons: - Fluent pronunciation - Correct spellings - Grammatical accuracy - An abundance of speaking practices - A repetitive course of learning to stimulate language familiarity - Incorporation of a new word learned during lessons which are then used in sentence construction to improve vocabulary. (Word of The Day) - Set achievable short-term and long-term language learning goals - Passionate and motivational teacher. :) - Aussie/NZ accents (Optional) I also have a list of reading materials, movies as well as podcasts that could be essential and beneficial in terms of language adherence and development. It also provides a fun and exciting platform for informal learning in their spare time which could be used to monitor progress. I will work extremely hard for you, to make sure you get the maximum benefit from each of our lessons. I genuinely care about your progress and I will get the results you need. :) Feedbacks from my clients: "Rowan has a unique way of teaching that somehow sticks. He helped me to improve my English and grammatical errors in my CV. I managed to get an interview upon fixing my CV. Rowan also coached me on public speaking during our simulated interview sessions as well as providing me with constructive feedback which gave me the confidence to seek job opportunities in Australia". "I am from China and I cannot understand basic English before but now I can read and write after seeking classes from Rowan. He was very compassionate towards me and kept motivating me to believe in myself. He could also speak basic mandarin which was quite helpful. After 20 lessons with Rowan, I finally managed to pass my IELTS which was a requirement to study in London". "Rowan helped me thoroughly in my IELTS preparations. My writing, reading, and speaking improved tremendously after heaps of discussions and practices. His lessons were really affordable and he even gave me a free class in the end as he genuinely wanted me to excel in my exams. I managed to get my visa approved upon getting a band 7 in IELTS in order to further my studies in New Zealand." "I am from Indonesia and I learned to speak advanced English after attending lessons from Rowan. To my surprise, Rowan was able to speak Bahasa as he is bilingual and he used it to my advantage when it came to conversational English. I was so comfortable speaking in Bahasa and was shy to speak in English. Rowan would translate my Bahasa sentences into proper English sentences which helped me to be familiarized with the English language. He even suggested some useful reading materials as homework. He then tested me on complex English words and my understandings from the reading materials during our lessons". As a health professional with a lifelong commitment to learning and engaging with people of various cultures & backgrounds, I firmly believe in helping people genuinely in any way possible regardless of their backgrounds. I grew up speaking British/American English in an international school as well as speaking Kiwi English as I'm currently residing in New Zealand. I hope I'm privileged enough to inspire you by providing my very best through online teaching. :)
