Biography

Gus left Saigon, Vietnam, at the end of the Vietnam War. Born to parents of Vietnamese and Chinese origins. He grew up, was educated and worked in Sydney, Australia, his entire life. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in Information Technology (IT). He spent the majority of his career as an IT professional, working for some of Australia's largest public, private and government organisations in industries such as insurance, finance, transport, utilities, media and health.

ABVN students are curious and determined learners. Students may not have realised this, but ... "I benefited more from learning about them than they do from me."

Testimonials

Focus of teaching

Conversational and examinational English, writing, pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, IELTS/TOEIC and the use of technology as a learning tool. Gus has no English teaching experience. "For me, learning English is about exposure to words, having conversations, sharing stories, learning from each other, and most importantly, having a bit of fun. I certainly enjoyed the lessons I have had with ABVN students thus far"
