My name is Sarah and I work full time in procurement with a major South Australian utilities company. Although I work with numbers during the day, my passion and qualifications are in language. In my spare time I work on my novel and I also take French lessons. Learning another language has given me a deeper appreciation of my natural ability and proficiency in the English language as a native speaker.
I have minimal teaching experience under the job title, but I have trained people in a professional capacity within job roles, and have worked frequently with people who have sought my editing skills and suggestions on report/essay writing; this includes family and friends and colleagues.
I also have many friends for who, English is not their native language, so I am constantly asked grammatical questions, and also, to correct colloquial language in professional documents.
Although I am not a teacher as such, I very much enjoy imparting my knowledge onto others.
I am patient and descriptive in my teaching approach. However, I am able to adapt to how best it is you learn.
I always try to have an example to assist any explanation I have, or new piece of information I am looking to impart. I am organised and can help with anything you might need assistance on. I try not to "spoon feed" answers to people as I feel that this detracts from the learning process. Arriving at an answer through an indirect approach, as opposed to being handed the information, is helpful for those studying in Year 11 and 12, particularly if they are looking to further their education at University.
