My name is Grant Richardson. I am an Australian native English teacher with over 6 years’ experience helping IELTS candidates achieve their goals. I hold a master’s degree in Applied Linguistics (Teaching Language for Specific Purposes) with Distinction average from Macquarie University, Sydney. Studies included Language Testing (including a focus on the IELTS test), English for Academic Purposes, Phonetics and Phonology, Language for Specific Purposes, Literacy, Systemic Functional Grammar, and more.
I have been teaching English as a Foreign Language for the past twelve years in both Sydney and Hong Kong. For the past six years, I have taught IELTS preparation courses to many hundreds of foreigners and local Hong Kong Chinese, and prior to that, Business Communications and Advanced General English courses to classes of Associate Degree and Higher Diploma students at HKU SPACE (four years).
I work full-time at an established English language school for adult foreigners and professional local Hong Kong Chinese adults. I am available after hours for personalised private tutorial lessons, either in person (face-to-face) or by Skype.
