Hello Students. My name is Timothy. But you can call me Tim. I’m a funny Australian man, from the city of Melbourne. I’ve lived in Saigon for 7 years now and love it.

I’m calm, friendly, outgoing and funny. Tall and Handsome. :D I love exercising, scuba diving, running, camping, swimming at the beach and drinking coffee. I read action and adventure books. I like to watch movies and history documentaries. I used to be a Deep Sea Diver in Australia but came to Vietnam to teach English. I love animals, especially reptiles. When I’m relaxing I enjoy making nice coffee and meeting my friends. If I have time, I travel as much as possible.
Me as a teacher
In the past, my students have described me as a fun, patient, encouraging teacher. I’d like to think that I am helpful and professional too. I sometimes like to challenge my students, to get them out of their comfort zone. I’m also friendly and knowledgeable in English. I can adapt to what the student wants to learn quite easily instead of just following a structured lesson plan.
Lesson and Teaching Styles
I teach conversational English, pronunciation, general English and vocational English. I can also just practice english with you so you become more confident speaking and listening. I teach in a fun and energetic way. I use a personalized learning method that allows students to learn at a pace that is beneficial to them. I encourage student-centered teaching as much as possible.
I am a Native English Speaker. I speak in an Australian Accent. I have a very clear pronunciation and am easy to listen to. I took a test of my English proficiency at this website - http://www.uefap.com/test/level5.htm - and I scored a Level 5 out of 0 to 5 levels.. This is equivalent to CEFR C2 level and IELST level of 7.0.
I promise to have you mastering English in a very short time. You will become more confident and clear after spending time with me.
For my conversational lessons, we won’t need any material or resources. Sometimes I might use Powerpoint slides. With vocational lessons, we will use video or voice recordings.
