Recent college graduate with 4 years of English teaching and tutoring experience.

Methodology

My teaching approach is a combination of a structured curriculum that is then approached somewhat holistically. Students are to follow a designated lesson plan, yet may approach it in various ways. I believe cultivating a friendly relationship with students, rather than a strict tutor/tutee approach, is much more effective at producing positive results.

Background

I have been teaching academic English to international students for over 4 years. I am aiming to leverage academic experiences and proven knowledge of curriculum development, classroom management, and course design to successfully accomplish my role as an English tutor.
