************************************************************************************


Hi, my name is Ivan.
I am a native English speaker from Australia and have been a teacher's assistant and English tutor for school-aged kids since 2017.
I enjoy working with children and have been a volunteer in a number of different programs.
I have also worked with older teenagers as well as those who need assistance with preparing for English tests and helping them fill out applications for various English and other educational studies.
I moved to Bosnia with my family as a young child but English is still very much my native language.
My lessons are fun, informative and I have lots of materials that are easy for young students to follow.
I am also happy to work with any materials my students have, especially if it will help them with their regular school work.
As a student learning a different language, I understand the difficulties and this has motivated me to further my studies to become a fully qualified English teacher.
I look forward to getting to know all the young, and young at heart English students out there so send me a message and introduce yourself.
