An experienced teacher

My approach to teaching English Language focuses on enabling students to improve their own work by assisting them to check for errors and self-correct. In addition to guiding students through answers, I think it is always useful to show students how to find great learning resources and how to use them, so that they may continue to work independently in the future.

Prepclass Tutor Since: February 2016

My focus during every lesson is to provide my student with clear explanations, lots of practice material, mostly based on past papers. 

I pride myself on my patient attitude which is vital to having a constructive lesson when preparing for an exam, there are often a few different methods for tackling a problem and patience is needed to go through these methods to find the one which the student understands and can learn to use on their own. This is something I put into action in my lessons.

I am able to edit, detect grammatical errors and improve the expression of any idea in written or typed form. I am creative and resourceful with the use of the English language as well as grounded in its literature. I am willing to learn and adapt to new ideas.

I understand that everyone learns in their own way, hence my lessons are fitly adjusted to the learning styles of the students.

Most of all, I believe lessons should be interactive; I encourage my students to try exercises themselves and to ask plenty of questions!
