eLearning Consultant and IELTS tutor in Wellington, New Zealand

I am an eLearning Consultant, English Language Teacher and IELTS Tutor currently living in Wellington, New Zealand.

I started teaching English as a second/foreign language in 2002 and moved into teaching and coordinating IELTS preparation courses in 2003. I began using Moodle in 2008, and from 2009 - 2019 I taught IELTS preparation courses: one-to-one in-person, one-to-one online, and in-person group classes.

My interest in global education arose from my own school years, during which I attended local schools in New Zealand and Canada, and an international school in Saudi Arabia.

I have worked as an English language teacher in Australia, England, Tunisia, and New Zealand, and was Director of Studies and School Manager in Ireland. I ran my own tutoring business in Brisbane, Australia for ten years, and after moving back to my home country of New Zealand in 2019, I now work full time as an eLearning Consultant for Catalyst IT. I continue to teach online via my 'YES! IELTS' website to a select handful of students.

Having personally faced the challenges of living and working abroad, I am passionate about helping others obtain their English language qualifications so that they can enjoy a positive experience in an English-speaking country.
