APEX ENGLISH TUTORING
Let me help you to the top!
My name is Michael Finemore and I am an Australian man -a native English speaker - living in Victoria, Australia.
ABOUT APEX ENGLISH TUTORING
After teaching English in China for fourteen years, I returned to Australia and founded Apex English Tutoring in early 2018.
I discovered a niche in the English teaching field: helping people whose English was "fair to good" but who needed to improve their English.
I decided not to teach beginners, as there are already numerous well established operations who cater for those with little or no English skills at all.
Based on my teaching experience, I offer the same methods I used in China at Apex English Tutoring. I am convinced that my 'simply better' methods are unique because I know of no other teachers using my methods, especially My 'simply better' Method: Module A.
I am passionate about my methods because I know they work in 'simply better' ways.
My commitment to making my Methods universal is strong because I believe in them. And you will too! If you get them, you will immediately 'get them' and discover how quickly your English skills will improve.
Although all my 'simply better' Methods are designed as 'self-teaching', I do offer 'after sales service' as Learning Support. And remember, every one of my Modules comes with Lifetime Access.

MY TEACHING EXPERIENCE
As well as University tutoring (in Sociology and Cultural Technologies), guest lecturing, and essay marking in those subjects, I've taught Conversational English in kindergartens, primary and middle schools, colleges and universities in several cities in China.
In collaboration with colleagues, I developed an 8 week short course in IELTS preparation in one of the colleges, and presented lectures and conducted workshops in debating and English pronunciation with university students. I've also engaged in the training of Chinese English teachers, as well as other groups of adult learners in a small range of industry contexts in China. (2002 - 2018)
I've also been a Volunteer Tutor at TAFE, working in very small groups and one-to-one, helping improve students' English literacy and numeracy (1998).
