I started learning English faster....
I studied in one of Andrew's ESL classes for 6 months and I am grateful to Andrew for building my confidence. He also made me be aware of the differences when speaking with native speakers, so I started learning English faster.

Andrew encouraged myself to believe when I was not believing.
When I started studying my English language course, I was not confident and secure enough in my English language skills also I was feeling homesick.
To have Andrew's as my English teacher , I would say: "was lucky". He is an excellent teacher and such a positive person that makes his classes very enthusiastic and makes you feel more interested to study.
Being a student of Andrew was absolutely fantastic, besides being an excellent teacher he encouraged myself to believe when I was not believing: "to be confident in my English language skills"!

Andrew had a unique ability to engage me and make me work through the problems that I had
My experiences in language learning enabled me to quickly see that Andrew has a unique ability to engage me and make me work through the problems that I had. His teaching was varied and flexible, always working in with my language needs, making sure that the topics made us think about our opinions.
He gave us lots of opportunities to talk and express ourselves. He always listened to what we said and stopped us when what we said was not clear or our language was not good. At first I found this a little unusual but now I can see the value it has had. It made me pay more attention to what I say. I found I didn’t have to push myself , like I was used to, because the activities and the way we worked were so engaging and involving.
He helped me believe in myself.

I would like to call him ‘mentor’ instead of teacher.
I did an advanced English course in 2009. I remember my first class with Andrew moved me very much! I could feel his passion for teaching his students.
The most important thing is the teacher--- Andrew is a highly qualified, he has broad knowledge and extremely well prepared for each class. I liked his ideas to improve my English. He gave us the ongoing homework, which was to watch drama every night.--- Can you believe? Watching T.V was my homework! Everyone liked this simple but helpful work! So, we watched the drama and we discussed it in the class. It helped me to understand the western culture easily. And for our assessments he always gave us a very clear and corrected feedback.
He is friendly and helpful always give me lots of information and advice to improve my further study until now. I would like to call him ‘mentor’ instead of teacher.

Andrew Weiler is not only an excellent teacher but also I would say, a beacon for us
IMr. Andrew Weiler has taught me English in for nearly 1 year after I came to Australia as a migrant. Under his comprehensive guidance, my English has been improved a lot!
Mr. Andrew Weiler is not only an excellent teacher but also I would say, a beacon for us. He impressed me as a knowledgeable, responsible, strict but impartial teacher. Apart from teaching us English itself, he taught us the right way to learn it. Furthermore, he gave us lots of recommendations about how to “survive” in this brand new country, which I found quite useful.
In my point of view, finding a RIGHT English teacher is more than essential for a new migrant. Mr. Andrew Weiler is the best English teacher I have ever had. And definitely, he really is. Thanks Andrew!!!
His teaching style is unique and inspiring helping me stay motivated
From my past learning experiences i have realised that it is very important and efficient for our homework being corrected thoroughly and get the feedback back on time. So i can improve my english writing skills in according to your suggestions. This also serves as a warning that i can be aware of avoiding the same mistakes next time. In Andrew's class, he always corrected my grammatical mistakes whenever i was talking to him, which was really helpful with my spoken english. Most importantly, his teaching style is quite unique, which is interesting and inspiring and helps me stay motivated in studying English. As for me i really appreciate for his help.

His classes were always filled with fun and knowledge
Mr.Weiler is a caring and easy going teacher. I have experienced learning English with him and I felt impressed with his approach and methodology. His classes were always filled with fun and knowledge. His classes provide great opportunities for improving listening and speaking abilities above all. Because of his teaching abilities my oral, written and communication abilities have grown significantly. As an overseas student his classes provided not only English learning opportunities, but also general knowldge about Australia, its people and culture. I am most thankful to him.
After attending Andrew's classes I learnt new and really effective ways to learn English, which I implemented in my daily life.
Before going to Andrew classes I was not aware that to learn English my approach is not completely right. But after attending his classes (ESL), I learned new and really effective ways to learn English, which I implemented in my daily life. Andrew helped me in building the confidence that me and anybody can learn English with right approaches.
One thing I really wanted to mention about Andrew is his teaching skills are amazing. Now I know a word can be used in different parts of speech and reading is a good way to improve my English. I have learned a lot from Andrew about Language learning. Thanks a ton Andrew!!!

Now my English has extremely improved, especially speaking
I recently completed the International Second Language Proficiency Ratings test and got 3 for 3 skills ( writing 3+). I must thank him very much. His advice was really good for me. Now my English has extremely improved, especially speaking. I always remember what Andrew told me.

I believe I shall now always be on the right track. Andrew helped me to develop a self-awareness habit of learning language.
By the age of the late forties, studying English language with young people like my daughters’ age is quite challenging for me. At first I just couldn’t believe that I can make it, but the reality is I achieved much in such a short six months period, this all because I’ve been privileged to be one of Andrew’s students.
I have been in Australia for many years and I had studied English for several years, since I’ve arrived. For many reasons, I had given up my English study for eight years. Wanting to try to pick up some English, this year I attended EAL class. Andrew is one of my teachers; also he is the special one who can bring out his students.
He is like a mentor more than an instructor, he made us believe in that every impossible thing could become possible, if we determined. He required us to set up short term and long term goals to guide us on the right track. He encouraged us more than simply pushing us. He always inspires us to study English with self-motivations, as giving us some inspirational stories to read at the right time of every study stages.
He often discusses the best way of using some English words in our writing, this helped us understanding more clearly of the logic of English language, and thus it helped us using these words more accurately and appropriately indeed.
All these practical methods made positive effects toward my English study; it transformed me into a new study stage. Although there is still a long way to go, but with the things I’ve learned from Andrew, I believe I shall always on the right track. Here, I would give g

Andrew taught us not just English, he guided us to find a right way to learn!
I was very lucky that I could be Andrew's student. He is the best teacher I have met. I really appreciate his way to teach, interested, humorous and inspired. Whole class, every one were very enjoy and devoted to the class discussing. I improved my speaking and listening a lot! Also I witnessed my classmates' progress. He taught us not just English, he guided us to find a right way to learn! That can be used for a lifetime! And I am pretty agree with his opinion about how to improve English. Find the difference and reduce the difference step by step. Actually it can be use any thing you want to improve. Set the standard and find what are the difference between you and the standard, then reduce it. Andrew is not only a teacher, but also a friend. Even once we left the class, we often ask him for advice or to help us while we are confused. I also had recommended my brother to attend his class, but unfortunately the class was full. He really want to try next term. I hope he can get into the class.

He inspired and made us believe in ourselves
I came to Australia from Ukraine in August 2010 and began studying English with Andrew Weiler in February 2011. Previously I hadn’t any formal education in English, I just started to learn it by myself 3 years ago. For 6 months Andrews teaching improved my English greatly. Our class came from all over the world and Andrew could find a way to teach all of us. He made a great atmosphere in the class, all students just adored him. All of us had just one goal, to improve our English enough to be successful in this country. Andrew showed us the way how to reach that goal. He inspired and made us to believe in ourselves. I think he is an incredible teacher. I did improve my writing, speaking, listening and reading English a lot. I think we were lucky to had Andrew as our teacher.

Andrew supported me and my fellow class mates to achieve the best we could.
My classes with Andrew Weiler had been really awesome. He’s a great teacher, who has acquired the best teaching tactics to teach students, who has been using English language as a second language. I have witnessed especially the overseas students, who have moved to Australia suddenly found themselves studying and working in an English speaking environment get benefitted through Andrew’s teaching. He conducts classes methodically in a very practical way, yet academically. Through his teaching students not only learn just English, but also essay writing tips and how to pay attention to speak and write in English using high level of words with correct grammar. With Andrew, students feel very comfortable when speaking English and more fluent too. The best thing about Andrew’s classes was he helped and encouraged us to set goals and prepare for his lessons according to what we want to achieve through his great sense of humor.
I really appreciated my classes with Andrew and they brought me a great enjoyment to attend his classes. He supported me and my fellow class mates to achieve the best we could. I highly recommend him and his teaching methods to anyone, who finds it difficult to learn English.

"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." Andrew is the kind of person who likes to teach a person to fish.
I was frustrated for a long time about my English, and I tried many ways to improve my English level by myself, but I couldn't see much worked. ....... I realized that my English was not that bad, I just need to be relax to avoid being nervous as it makes me stuck......I recognized I need some professional guidance to be overall improved. I enrolled a language course ....which Andrew was teaching.
This course was totally different from the other language course which I've took before. There were no boring separate exercises to do! Andrew is good at create a relaxed atmosphere in the class to make sure everyone felt comfortable to talk. When we felt relax we could be more open. When we started to talk, he started to listen carefully to the words we used, tried to get the meaning from us, and then tried to figure out what the problems we had. He never laughed at any mistakes we made, instead, he pointed it out and then tried to get everyone involved to think about it. He never tell us the answer straight, just guided us to move to the right track.
Andrew always encourages everyone. He encourages us to be a positive and be active learners ..... in our life. He never rebuke us when we tried to looking for some excuses not to do the homework which he gave us. He pointed out that homework is a kind of way to help us practice English....
I think I was very lucky to meet such a good teacher. He respected each one of us, and taught us the ways of learning. Confucius say: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. I think Andrew is the kind of person who likes to teach a person to fish.

I have realised that speaking English is not as difficult as I thought
I am lucky to have chance to learn English with Andrew in the early days when I just arrived in Australia. I am really impressive about the way he teaches. It does not only focus on four English skills but also inspired me to be aware of the own way to continue to develop my language skills after the class. With me, the pronunciation is most terrible thing during learning English however thanks to his patience and guidance, I have realised that speaking English is not as difficult as we thought and I really enjoyed learning with him!

If you want to improve your English and confidence, work with Andrew
I am an immigrant. I have been in Australia for almost 3 years. At beginning, I was not sure my English was good, I was nervous to say English with the local people and felt a little bit scared.
I met Andrew, my English teacher. He taught us not just improving our English but also improving our levels of confidence.
After 3 terms learning with him, I could say something to the local people who I don't know. I am relax when I say English, and I can go to the local shops. That is so amazing, because it could not happen one year ago . Now I could enjoy my new life in Melbourne.
He is not just a great teacher, he is also a good friend, he is so kind to everybody.

Andrew helped me understand how I can take my language learning to a whole new level.
I have recently moved from Moscow to Melbourne. Relocating from one side of the world to other has been quite challenging for me. Andrew helped me in settling into the Australian lifestyle and in understanding how I can take my language learning to a whole new level. I really appreciate Andrew's lessons because I feel more confident communicating people in English!
