I'm a 33 year old native NZer - I have a lot of experience teaching and tutoring overseas and in NZ. I have a full time job as a relationship manager for an Australian finance company. I've taught/tutored IELTS, ESL with adults and assisted with University courses and essay prep. I prefer working with older teens or adults, not children (but I do love kids) ideally those looking to work on their English for employment, academic or business English.
