An EFL (English as a foreign language trainer) giving online and classroom training to students of all levels

Methodology

I have worked as an EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teacher. Have worked in different parts of the world to name a few are England, Poland, Indonesia, Egypt and India. I provide classes to students in General English, Business English, IELTS, Young Learners etc. I have been teaching students of all age groups and from different walks of life.
The English language in the present scenario is being used as a skill. Different professions require language lessons that enhance their communication and makes it more effective. The approach which I adhere to is 'Communicative Approach'. The lessons are made interactive with the help of a variety of activities.

One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Anita will plan your first lesson with care.

Background

I have been teaching for over 20 years in many parts of the world. Have taught umpteen students. Most of the students are well settled.I feel that the role of a teacher is of critical importance. One has to identify the needs of her students and adapt accordingly. Learning a language is a cooperative process, whereby, the teacher acts as a suitable guide to help the students generate and develop the required skills for language learning. I am very keen on online teaching as I strongly believe that it provides a teacher with tremendous scope for innovation and creativity. Furthermore, online teaching also gives greater flexibility to both the teacher and the student; paving the path for engaging and fun-filled lessons. If I get this job opportunity, I would be able to utilise all my years of experience as an EFL teacher constructively

Anita's resume

I did my BA in English from Loreto College, Darjeeling. However, my initiation into the field of EFL teaching started in Oxford, UK. It was while I was doing my ITC from the Oxford ESOL centre, I realized that this is the right career path for me. After completing the course, I also did NVQ 2 certification course on Children with Special Educational needs from Oxfordshire County Council. EFL teaching opened up a whole new possibility of teaching for me, and thus I did CELTA course from British Council, Delhi. I have always been passionate about teaching and this encouraged me to go deeper into the field of EFL teaching.I have worked in several countries and experienced various cultural climates. I started my career at the Oxford ESOL Centre, UK where I have taught students from various different countries and cultures. I have worked in India extensively with various organizations and institutes training students for different types of courses such as IELTS, Personality Development and Interview skills, etc. I have worked for three years with National Louis University, Poland teaching various levels of General English, Business English, etc. I have also worked in other places such as Indonesia and Scarborough, UK, teaching students of all levels and age groups. For the last three years, I was working for the British Council, Egypt where I taught students all levels of General and Business English and also trained them for various examination courses such as IELTS, BEC, etc as well as special courses such as Corporate English, Report Writing, etc. I worked for a non-profit organisation in Kolkata India which works towards the training and development of unprivileged men and women. The training was mainly imparted online.

Firstly, I would say thank to her for accepting me as student.

Very nice experience

Anindya

Perfect! Superprof should take pride on teachers like Anita. She is not only a brilliant teacher but extremely fearless and confident. I have done very few classes with her but I have also learnt her way of speaking which is definitely going to help me in my IELTS speaking test. She helped me to find out my mistakes and make me understand the Band 7 construction of Writing Task 2 of IELTS. Her benevolence and magnanimous personality makes her compassionate teaching more interesting. I will recommend her without a second thought!
N.B. Anita, if you are reading this, please don't scold me again for using bombastic words and even if you do I really don't care because this is not an IELTS!

Love and regards,
Anindya

Manuel

Perfect! Anita, is a great teacher! She has a lot of patience. In the first class, she took me a test, and identify what are my shortcomings. In each class she teach me using guides, videos and examples. She always explain me very clearly, and take time necessary until i understand the concept and always she teach me the pronunciation correctly.

I recommend Anita 100% to teach english!

Anita's response

Thank you so much Manuel for such a wonderful feedback. It is always more rewarding to teach when there are enthusiastic, motivated and sincere students like you.

Interview with Anita

QUESTION 01 | 07
What motivates you to teach and why?
Anita — The challenges I face as a teacher. these help me to understand the needs and requirements of my students. It gives me a sense of achievement when I see my students getting what they desired.
QUESTION 02 | 07
When did you start developing an interest in your subject area?
Anita — When I was in Oxford. I enrolled in the ITC training programme which was being conducted by Oxford ESOL centre. While doing the course I realized that this field is vast and there is so much to learn. Since then my journey started as an EFL trainer and my interest started growing.
QUESTION 03 | 07
If you had to think of a role model for your work, who do you think of and why?
Anita — The person I would like to mention is Bogna Skorupka who was the language head of the EFL department at WSB-NLU university in Poland. I really admired her managerial skills and the way she handled different situations. She was also a very nice person and an excellent teacher.
QUESTION 04 | 07
What is the biggest obstacle you had to overcome in mastering your craft?
Anita — Though my nationality is British, I am of Indian origin. I started teaching at least two decades back. At that time the concept of English language teaching was restricted to a few nationalities only. This made my acceptance as an EFL trainer quite difficult as I am a person of colour. So to prove my worth as an EFL teacher, especially for my students, was quite challenging. At the same time, I must admit that it was a very rewarding experience to win the confidence of my students and get accepted.
QUESTION 05 | 07
In your opinion, what makes someone excel in your subject area?
Anita — Well in order to excel you have to be a mentor first. If you are an EFL teacher it is expected that you will have good knowledge about the subject. We as teachers often forget that there is a lot more to it than this. It is very important to connect with your students. This not only helps you to understand them better but also enhances the learning process. This learning process is applicable not only to the students but the teachers as well. I completely believe that there is no end to learning and it is high time we as teachers realize this.
QUESTION 06 | 07
What would you say to a student who says, "This is too difficult, I give up!"?
Anita — Before saying anything I would like to reflect on my lesson. This will give me some idea about the problem a student is facing in a particular lesson. After that, I would like to talk and discuss it at length with my student. I would give him every freedom to give me feedback about the lesson and the problems he is facing in specific areas.
QUESTION 07 | 07
How does someone become a Super Teacher?
Anita — Well according to me there are no super teachers. We as teachers are either good or not so good.
