“A good teacher is one who makes herself progressively unnecessary.” ~ Thomas Carruthers

“A good teacher must be able to put herself in the place of those who find learning hard.”~ Eliphas Levi

“The mediocre teacher tells, the good teacher explains, the superior teacher demonstrates, the great teacher inspires.”~ William Arthur Ward

About Rosa:

Teaching is my way of contributing to the world, to make a difference in the life of every student.

I work with both kids and adults by helping them to appreciate their inherent talent and strength so that they become confident and empowered to be who they are born to be.

I am a qualified NET with first class honours in linguistics and and high distinction in TESOL.  Brought up in Melbourne, and having lived in different countries, I have been teaching English in Hong Kong for over a decade, both privately and in schools and learning centres, taking most summers off for travel. I love English and French. Writing is my passion  and my preferred means of communication.
I would love to help students improve their English proficiency and hence build up their confidence with my experiences and my heart.
​​

I hold my students to the greatest I see in them and when I do, they always rise.

We all shine on the inside and that we will shine with those who provide the right environment for us to do so.
