English Language Tutor
Highly proficient in teaching this subject
I make sure my students fully understand the concepts of English Language and the reason why it is being learnt. Hence I try to make my lessons as easy to understand as possible using various learning techniques.
I have worked with children over the years even before I signed on to the teaching profession, from taking care of siblings to taking care of relatives which probably prompted me towards the teaching profession.
I have been teaching for about 4 years now and over this period, I have learnt to be smarter, more dedicated and proactive.
I have also learnt to develop a flexible approach such that is adjustable to meet the individual needs of every child/student.
My tutoring approach works with assessing the students to determine their strengths and weaknesses. For the weak areas, we work together to create a progressive plan which would help to boost the student's confidence in the subject(s) being taught, For the areas where the student has strength, an effective study plan would be set up to ensure the strengths are maximized.
I have found success by using a variety of approaches which include role playing and brainstorming exercises that have worked well with different students.
I look forward to passing my enthusiasm to my students.
