Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia,
Diploma of Languages, 2014
Hello! (or as we say in Australia, «G’day!»). My name is Brett Phillips and I’m excited to be joining the team at Time this year. I come from a rural area of Australia, approximately 500km west of Sydney. I have many years of experience working with children and teens in volunteer roles, including four short-term trips to summer camps in St Petersburg. However, the most valuable experience I have with teaching is raising my five children! I moved to Krasnoyarsk with my wife and children in September 2013 to study Russian, During that time, I have also completed my studies in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and obtained a Diploma in Languages from the Macquarie University in Sydney. I absolutely love working with children, as they are always ready to have some fun — which I think is a valuable part of the learning process. I also enjoy the challenge of helping teens and adults discover their individual style of learning that will guarantee them greater success in their English learning adventure.
