Qualifications
Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine;
Bachelor of Arts (Literature, Asian Studies, Education);
Certificate IV in TESOL


As a graduate of Ozford’s TESOL Certificate IV program and the very positive learning experience I received, I am excited to be able to continue my relationship with the staff and students at Ozford as a teacher.

My long years of teaching experience in a variety of environments to students of varying ages and abilities, as well as my status as a recent immigrant to Australia from the USA, make me well-suited to address the needs of international students. I am a teacher who not only focuses on academic outcomes but I also care about students and their concerns and work hard to meet their needs. I love teaching using the communicative approach and am committed to developing lessons that aim to support students to reach their goals.

Jack Coulton

Qualifications:
BA- Arts in Literature & Creative Writing


The thrill of language and communication is, and has always has been, at the center of my life. A storyteller at heart, I take real pleasure in words, where they come from, and all the different ways that people use them. Since working with Chinese-born schoolchildren in the UK in 2011 and helping them with their English homework, I knew that I wanted to teach. It was in Turin that I had the vast bulk of my teaching experience so far, in a wide variety of settings: from teaching the PET exam to classrooms of young learners in both state and private schools, to working with companies (often with very specific technical vocabulary which was a learning experience for myself) and, most of all, the IELTS exam, which is obligatory for students at one of Turin’s two universities, and hence always in demand. As such, I consider myself somewhat of an IELTS specialist. I enjoy teaching General English to groups or individuals no matter their age or level.

Jasmin Greenall

Qualifications:
BA Hons. Hispanic Studies and Linguistics


Hi, my name is Jasmin and I teach the Academic Skills and English for Academic Purposes courses here at Ozford. My goal is to help each student to reach their potential and finish the course ready to take on the challenge of studying in English at high school or university. I studied linguistics at university and alongside my teaching I also research linguistics remotely with ETH Zurich in Switzerland. I bring my expertise in the fields of language and academia into the classroom which, along with careful attention to individual student support, allows me to effectively aid students in their preparation for future study in English.
I love languages and learning and I strive bring the individual cultures and learning styles of the students and the dynamics of the group together to help students find the same enjoyment of learning. Language teaching is my passion, and I am dedicated to continually developing my teaching skills which means I am always updating my courses to include new communicative and interactive activities and games as well as online and app-based tasks which can help students to engage with the materials and have flexible language and academic capabilities
My favourite part of the job is getting to know wonderful people from all over the world and being a part of their success story!
