Hello! My name is Anthea. I am Australian, but I currently live in Penang, Malaysia.
Let me help you become proficient and confident in English so you can prepare for the OET, or converse confidently with colleagues, patients or within social groups.
I am a Registered Nurse with over 25 years of experience. I understand the health care and wellness industry. My clinical experience has been in the Emergency Department, Health Management, Mental Health, Drug and Alcohol, Justice Health and GP practices. To top it off, I am also a freelance writer in the health and wellness niche and worked as a fitness instructor for 13 years.
I understand the particular difficulties health care professionals face and the skills sets required to be effective at their job. It has been my focus for the past 25 years.
I enjoy real-world conversational and occupational/contextual English. I have many interests, so there is no shortage of things to discuss.
My teaching style is relaxed, supportive and interactive.
* I give extensive written feedback to help you continue improving.
* You will get to learn the English language in context for your needs.
* The lessons will involve activities that are practical, relevant and focused on you reaching your goals.
You are not just "another student" to me. As we work together to build your English competency and fluency, we will get to know each other. The lessons will be relevant and focused on your needs.
My areas of speciality - Medical, Health and Wellness, Business/Professional English, effective communication in the clinical and social setting, confidence building.
I use supplementary materials and resources. Some examples include WhatsApp, Youtube, podcasts, and homework about current events or relevant topics, depending on your needs.
