English key to doctor’s dreams - Become a Volunteer Tutor


Colombian-born Isabel Giraldo is now a step closer to being a registered doctor in Australia, thanks to the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP).

Isabel needed to improve her English to ensure that she was able to pass the Occupational English Test and continue towards her dream of working as a GP in Australia.

After enrolling in the AMEP, Isabel was matched with volunteer tutor Beverley Tyrell and began studying English at home, which enabled her to care for her 10 month-old son.

With Beverley’s support, Isabel passed the Occupational English Test and they continue to work closely together.

“I enjoy supporting new migrants to learn English and the Australian way of life,” says Beverley.
