Hi! My name is Kym and I am an English tutor. I've been teaching English lessons with Japanese students online. My teaching philosophy is that I let my students enjoy the flow and not pressure them to be excellent immediately.
I'm an experienced ESL teacher and tutor who focuses on communication and use of language to achieve language results. I have a great rapport with all of my students and enjoy watching them grow and achieve their goals. Depending on the kind of student, I will start my lessons with a review of previous learning points and try to use them in a suitable context.
I structure tutorials according to student needs, with regard to forthcoming classwork, assignments, essays or exams. I methodically identify strengths and weaknesses and devise a strategy for ensuring each student fulfils his or her potential and meets all educational requirements.
I plan my classes based on my students' needs. Each class is a little different, covering different concepts like grammar, tenses, business English, pronunciation, vocabulary, to name a few. My students have a lot of control over what is taught in the classes as I encourage them to share with me the type of content they want to learn.
My method of teaching has been noted for its optimism, enthusiasm, and passion. I utilise positive reinforcement and encourage creative expression, based on my belief that everyone learns best when they feel as though they are doing something they're good at.
I base my classes on total immersion. Each class should have an element of speaking, reading, listening, writing and grammar. This can be in consecutive order but often works best when integrated within a topic. Some homework for consolidation is recommended.
My teaching method is very student centred. Depending on the student/s goal for the lessons the session may be more task based or more dialogue and conversation focussed. My lessons are geared towards those who already have a base in English (even if just a small amount) and are looking to expand their level towards an exam grade.
All lessons will be tailored to the individual student or students, how they like to learn, and the ways they can practice and learn best.
The most important thing for me is error correction and improvement on individual mistakes. A combination of written and oral feedback is provided to ensure the student benefits the most from the class. I tend to avoid grammar (unless requested) and focus on communicative English and vocabulary expansion.
Depending upon the students availability, I remain flexible and open to the students needs. I use different teaching methods, from online tutoring to face to face meetings. If it is to prepare a student for exams, then i will use practical tools such as past exam papers but if it is to review an assignment i will provide my views in track changes and then provide an oral feedback to the student.
My teaching method is student-centred, in that it is flexible to the needs and expectations of each student. I apply communicative and content-based approaches to teaching English language and literature. I use creative ways to teach students difficult concepts and ideas.
I use phonic method which works very well and gives quick results with all students including those with dyslexia. All reading and writing materials provided for no additional cost. In homework students practice topics which have been discussed/explained during sessions.
By scaffolding on what you already know I can develop an individual program to build confidence and English language that is relevant to you across a range of contexts. Programs begin with fun games and topical conversations building into grammar and language acquisition.
My teaching method involves giving proper description about the topic and showing how to do particular lesson and ask questions for checking understanding and make them understand the topic fully. If possible I try to make them understand by taking help to graphs and diagrams.
I endeavour to incorporate a variety of teaching approaches into each learning experience so that the range in student abilities and the diversity of learning styles are attended to and learning activities are felt to be both relevant and interesting by students. Participative learning needs to be assisted by direct teaching.
My teaching method is really simple and organised as I like to take each section difficulty level on a day to day basis and within 10 days I am sure, you will have a basic idea of how to approach the IELTS paper.
My lessons would be directed towards an appreciation for literature and an expanding of it via a variety of forms such as: - Reading and analysing various written texts; - Writing different formats that explore various genres; and - Discussing and exploring together what different texts may represent in a historical, social and political context.
The general approach is communicative Language teaching which is modified according to the student's learning style. The lessons are based on the needs of the students in their real life enriched with creative activities to heighten the efficiency of the lessons.
I believe all lessons should be focused around the student and their needs. I'd like to start by identifying exactly what the student is having trouble with. I know that homework can often pile up so I think the best way forward is to begin with basics, to make sure the student understands the area of English they need to work on, so then we can build up to working through homework and assignments.
My teaching method is based on pictures, imagines and real-life conversation and experience to keep the student always involved in the conversation. Also adaptive recalls and a single personal customized tracking on progress and vocabulary developing.
Everyone has a different learning style. So whether you prefer a more conversational approach or you want to work on particular skills of the language, I will accomodate to your needs. The most important thing is that you ENJOY learning English.
I base my teaching on how the student wishes to study. I can break down my lessons and make notes for students if required. Being a psychology student I am able to read a student's mind. I push students to working hard and also strict when needed but I always give small incentives maybe chocolates to push them for achieving more acting as a positive reinforcement for them.
I combine my teaching method depends on the level. For children, I usually apply kinaesthetic learning and direct instruction to build their excitement and prevent from boredom. For youngsters, game-based learning, silent-way and discussion method as they are likely to have problem-solving tasks.
My teaching method is structured according to the students' needs. This means that I will work together with a student to recognise what method works for them. Generally, I teach students to effectively take notes, colour coordinate them and how to use various resources to build on their prior knowledge. Furthermore, I encourage the use of visual and audio studying as well.
The profile and needs of my students largely affect the teaching methodology that I use. If the students learn best by using the language communicatively, I use the Communicative Language Teaching method. However, if learners prefer explicit grammar lessons, then Grammar-Translation method will be used.
I believe in creating a safe environment where students can feel comfortable making mistakes while they learn, as mistakes can only help when trying to understand a topic. Depending on what facet of the English language students were finding difficulty with we would run through different activities, whether written or verbal.
I am a patient and enthusiastic teacher and learner. I believe that striking a balance between having fun and being serious while learning is essential! I enjoy teaching people of all ages, genders and from all types of educational and ethnic backgrounds. I endeavour to tailor sessions to the student, and to ensure they feel comfortable sharing their ideas an opinions.
Experience in teaching VCE English, developing both text response and persuasive language essay analysis and writing skills, building vocabulary and metalanguage, developing an understanding of issues and argument analysis.
My teaching method is light and fun. I approach each topic methodically and provide detailed explanations wherever necessary. I believe you have to learn by doing and you will be successful as long as you try your best and never give up.
