Shelley Barons

English teacher
Sydney Campus

Shelley approaches her classes with a fresh, fun and functional approach, having recently retrained in TESOL at Western Sydney University, after over 20 years’ experience as a book editor in the field of education. She enjoys the challenge of teaching a multi-level classroom, with students from Elementary to Advanced English.

She takes a genuine interest in her students and believes that sharing information about our many and varied cultures and promoting tolerance and acceptance is what modern multicultural Australian society is all about.

Shelley has lived in Sydney all her life and although a native English speaker, feels like she is learning new and interesting things about her own language every day as she explores it with her students.
