Qualified and Experienced Primary Teacher and Language Tutor offering creative Online Lessons

Methodology

My lessons are dynamic, well-resourced and well-prepared in which an attitude of 'let's try' and 'can do' is encouraged and nurtured. Obstacles, challenges and difficulties are considered as opportunities to grow and extend skills and are thus turned into positive experiences.

The atmosphere during my lessons tends to be relaxed and flexible allowing for constant re-adjustment to the student’s particular needs. We would use different resources to assist us during the lesson.

My planning would be founded on what the student knows already and then carefully building on this knowledge through identifying gaps, setting individual targets and developing steps to success in order to achieve the desired learning goals.

At the heart of my teaching lie open communication, honesty and respect flowing both ways. I believe every student can learn successfully if they are provided with the correct resources, circumstances and support. I always aim to build each student's self-esteem and confidence through setting individual learning targets that match their individual strengths and weaknesses, through celebrating their individual achievements, through praise and encouragement and through adequate support and guidance and by allowing each student to learn at their own pace.

Background

I have been working in the education sector since 10 years now as class teacher and private tutor for literacy, mathematics as well as languages including German, English and Spanish. I have worked with children of all ages as well as adults alike. I also have experience with designing lessons that are tailor-made for students with special educational needs.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $20/h

Details

I also accept bookings for 30 min at a rate of £10 and for 45 min at a rate of 12. I am also happy to do group lessons online. The rate for a group would be £20 per 1 hour online lesson and the maximum number of participants would depend on the subject of the lesson.
