I utilize direct teaching and facilitated learning in tandem to deliver proficiency-based instruction to my students, both secondary students and adults. My goal is to assist you in understanding that languages can only be learned, not taught. What is practiced outside of the tutoring session is just as important as the material that I will present to my students.
Tell me your goals for ESL and I will get you there! In addition to my TEFL certificate, I'm also a BA in English Literature and a writer. Plus, I teach business courses to international students.
My teaching methods are determined by the students, in that I find younger students or those with weaker skills require a more structured classroom. Those students that are are college-aged, recent grads or early professionals tend to receive a more curated approach, one that seeks to administer to their experience, goals and weak points.
I base my lessons on each student's needs. I have audio lessons for listening practice, have created exercises for reading comprehension, and will design activities based on you! I have recently published books designed to teach reading and vocabulary.
PhD - Education: Leadership MS - Education: Leadership Juris Doctor - Law BS - Business: Administration English is my second language. As a life-long learner of the art, I have completed the above degrees, with 4.0 GPA. I have taught ESL to diverse audiences for over 10 years.
I am the author/producer of 30+ non-fiction books and and also am a retired professor of International Management for the University of Texas at Dallas. I will help you improve your proficiency in written English using learning methods & tools that are directly relevant to your business and professional objectives.
My teaching method is PPP (Present/Practice/Produce). Presentation is where I present the language target, then followed by Practice. This is where I model the target language and guide the students in using it. The last stage is production stage. This is where the student uses the target language independently, and the last stage is giving feedback or corrections.
I love helping professionals feel confident and happy expressing clear thoughts and emotions in writing, and without an accent. First, in a fun question & answer session, we identify your goals and priorities. That way, we swiftly shape the class to your specific needs.
Hi, I'm Patty from Brazil. I did my graduation in Business Management in Brazil and I did study in Ireland, England, and China, now I'm living in U.S. I used to teach my students basic principles in second language acquisition, set up English speaking and special the listening. I'm more ESL teaching.
My methodology absolutely begins with the individual student--his/her specific history concerns, hopes, and goals. After speaking with the student (via Skype or in person) and discussing these issues and the student's schedule, and (generally) giving the student a test to assess his/her level, I create a general plan that the student changes, if needed, and then approves.
My teaching method is to know the student's purpose of learning English. Based on this, I will be able to make lesson plans, interesting activities and conversations. If there is a certain field in English that you want to improve, for example sentence structure, tenses, general grammar or any others, we will do it together! Be always motivated and aspirated.
My classes are 30 minutes long / 4 times per week. These short classes are ideal for Business Professionals who are busy during the week or youngsters who have short attention spans. Having class 4 times a week allows the material to adhere better. In every class we practice drills aimed at helping with structure and pronunciation as well as correcting deep rooted mistakes.
This would be extremely interactive and engaging. At the students pace however, still challenging the student to raise their level and abilities based on my analysis during each lesson.
I have a relaxed teaching approach. We will focus only on the parts that you wish to improve and then plan our lessons accordingly. I like giving small, short homework assignments to keep the student practicing lesson content for best results.
My teaching philosophy is patience, guidance, encouragement, and respect are the ways to achieve academic success. As an educator, my goal is to ensure that every student has a learning environment where they feel optimistic, enthusiastic and supported. Also, I believe in keeping each tutoring session professional and confidential with mutual respect and collaboration between tutor and the student.
I am an energetic and fun teacher with experience teaching kids up to adults in the UK and Spain. My style is engaging and focuses on making students learn whilst having fun. Depending on the level of the student, I can cater more interactive or more learning- based exercises through a variety of methodologies including music and poetry.
I earned a 1981 Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish from Salisbury University in Salisbury, Maryland. This included a language immersion program at Universitat de Valencia in Spain. I also took a 3-month Oxford Seminar course at John Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, in 2008 entitled "Teaching English to Speakers of Other Second Language/Teaching English as a Foreign Language".
I structure my lessons around basic and daily conversational skills. It is important that people can share their thoughts, stories, and ideas - even in the most basic format. Lessons involve props, videos, stories, games, and vocabulary. Lessons are taught completely in English.
Materials: I prefer working with handcrafted and authentic materials ,ex : pictures or anything you can possibly touch, feel or see. ESA lesson plan : ¹Engaging stage: to get you thinking and talking in English, ex: guess who am I? game; brainstorm or music activities etc. ²Study stage : teaching the target language by using worksheets, scramble words, fill the gaps, etc.
I base my teaching on what students want to achieve. When I first meet a student; I find their level, goals and trouble spots. I then develop individualized curriculum that helps them meet those goals. My overarching goal is for my students to speak English with confidence.
I enjoy teaching one-to-one lessons because it allows me to tailor the learning towards your specific goals and interests as a student. I look forward to the opportunity to empower your students learning goals with my energy and creativity. I am very friendly and outgoing and Look forward to working with you very soon.
Communicative language teaching is my teaching methodology. I believe that students should learn how to use English grammar in real life situations. First, the students should learn the basic grammar rules and then they should be given the opportunity to use the grammar. For example, if I wanted students to practice the past tense, I would ask the students about their weekend.
I am a composition/literature/writing instructor at the University of Alabama and Shelton State Community College. I've been teaching for around 7 years. I've worked with students of many ages, backgrounds and writing abilities. I like to communicate one on one with my students to ensure they understand the subject.
I have 20 years of experience teaching freshman Composition, Advanced Composition, Advanced Professional Writing, Literary Theory, and African American literature courses at the university level. I have a Ph. D. in English from The University of Alberta.
I possess the following degrees and credentials to facilitate students: Doctor of Philosophy in Organization and Management, specialization in Management Education Master of Science in Education, specialization in Professional Studies in Education Post-Master's Certificate in Education, specialization in College Teaching Bachelor of Science in Management Associate of Arts in Journalism
As someone who learned a language as an adult, I am very sensitive to the difficulties of learning English as a second language. There are many exceptions to rules, words adopted from other languages, and strange pronunciations. My methodology when teaching English is slow and steady. I also like to role play in certain situations so that my students can get a taste of real life.
I customize my lessons to each student's needs. Our first lesson focuses on getting to know each other so that we can set specific goals to reach. I then develop a curriculum and select the right course materials to help us achieve our objectives.
I love having a relaxed and comfortable learning atmosphere with my students in order for my students to be engaged and participate to the fullest in my classrooms. With students who are seeking knowledge of general English, my students and I will typically discuss topics range from any walk of life including sports, movies, pop cultures and general everyday topics.
Emphasis on figurative language, metaphoric language and popular idioms. Use diametric instructional methods, leading students to the correct understanding by guiding what they know already to the new piece of knowledge. Implement and utilize Blooms Taxonomy developing critical original thinking from the student.
Each lesson will incorporate reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills all at once, relating to a theme that is important for them to know since you are immersed in American culture. Being able to have an understanding of the culture your children experience at school or to be able to participate in the culture at work keeps you motivated to learn.
