Describe your teaching and tutoring experience?

 

I've taught English to both adults and children online and in-person for over 10 years. I have really enjoyed it! I've had students from all over the world! I understand the common mistakes students make and how best to help them improve. I believe that the secret to becoming a more fluent speaker is to speak more! Yes, find opportunities to speak in and out of class. I always devote some time to conversation in each class, on a wide variety of topics, to help build confidence.

Tell us about yourself. What are your interests outside of school? What else would students enjoy knowing about you?

I love the outdoors! I enjoy riding my bike or going for a long walk with a friend. My ideal vacation is anywhere near a beach. I've enjoyed playing sports over the years as I am quite athletic (well at least when I was a bit younger).

What makes you an awesome Tutor? Describe any experience, qualifications or strategies here?

I have excellent diction and speak at a pace comfortable for the student. It isn't one size fits all, meaning I adapt to the needs of each individual student. I like to know from the beginning what the strengths and weaknesses are from the mouth of the students themselves. I ask my students how they think they are doing currently and what they want to improve and match that up with my own assessment. I try to be flexible as what we learn in each class. I focus on areas that will practically affect their English language life.
