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.
I would ask any student what they want to learn and listen carefully to their needs and desires -- then do my best to give them custom help tailored specifically to what they want and help them achieve those goals.
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 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.
I have been teaching in colleges, language centers and online since 2005. I design interesting, effective lessons for my students. We have fun learning. We can specialize in: - Listening (stories, news, job interviews, etc.) - Speaking (phones, small talk, business English, etc.) - Reading (news stories, job advertisements, etc.) - Writing (e-mail, job applications, Facebook, etc.
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 do a great job at mediating lessons and ensuring the student has ample talk time to practice whatever we are studying. I will work with the student to set clear goals and provide an achievable, structured curriculum that we can work through together.
My motto as an educator is, “If they’re not learning, you’re not teaching.” This idea is at the core of my teaching philosophy. I am most interested in the teaching and learning process and how the traditional limits of these pursuits can be challenged.
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 love to engage my students in the joy of writing by finding out what interests them, what some of there concerns are, and to start from there in expanding their writing skills. I believe that everyone can write, and write well. They just need a little encouragement and coaching.
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.
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".
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 take a student-centered approach, and I plan lessons to meet students' goals and needs accordingly. My classes are centered around student participation and engagement in order to facilitate conversation, thus, more practice speaking English.
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 am a native English speaker (an American from California). I hold a bachelor's degree in Finance, as well as a TEFL certificate. I seek to teach adults (age 18+), from all levels (beginner to advanced). In addition, I also studied French and level of French is intermediate.
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.
12+years teaching from very young children to demanding executives, both face to face or using the internet via an online platform, Skype or Webex. I have taught English, Spanish, ISO 900 and International Conflict Resolution.
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 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.
I believe the best way to teach English is from the bottom up. That is, from student to teacher. The teacher is a guide. I base my teaching on how advanced the student is in the language and subject area. We will learn by reading, writing, and speaking. We will be able to arrange a meeting place since the learning environment is very important.
