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.
I understand how a pupil's self esteem can fall and motivation to learn can diminish, when difficulties are experienced. This is overcome by allowing a child to achieve success and ultimately empower a pupil to learn independently. Lessons are prepared around the individual's difficulties being experienced and include activities which are varied and enjoyable.
I believe that providing students with a specific answer is more detrimental than beneficial for their ongoing learning. As such, I try to facilitate their exploration of a topic, building upon their current understanding to a point where they are sufficiently confident and knowledgeable to lead their own learning.
I assess your existing knowledge and discuss goals you want to achieve. I will teach you and guide you according to your preferred learning style. The lessons will be very casual and relaxed, and there will be a variety of teaching aids used.
I love learning. I aim to assist with current homework from school. Sometimes it is helpful to have someone to discuss topics and ideas with when doing essential assignments (research project is a big one!) and essays for any class. I can also help go over topics, create personalised study plans and ways to benefit studies.
I want to make students feel comfortable and confident in what they’re learning, and I want them to achieve great results. I am passionate about the subjects I tutor, and have actively sought to work in those fields. As an example, as a student at the ANU, I won a coveted internship at the Federal Parliament for Senator Rachel Siewert’s offices.
I approach topics by using worksheets and assessments. I create interesting and useful materials for students to utilize and get them to apply the knowledge they have derived on the day of the lesson so as to keep them on track and start anew in every new class.
My teaching method mainly involves giving the student the tools and skill to find the answer to the question they are asking. I strive to provide a safe and comfortable space to learn, without pressure or fear of failure. I do this by creating an equal playing field - this means that I am no better than you.
I believe that everyone learns differently, so much so that I feel categorisation of such learning styles into Visual, Aural, etc. to be ineffective. I would like to allow the students to decide how they would like to be taught, and build a method of teaching around this.
My teaching methodology is based upon understanding the student, approaching them and their work with assertiveness, kindness as well as friendliness, helping them to achieve their full potential. I am to teach them based upon how they feel they learn best.
I work with the student rather than against. Every pupil is different, and that is why I spend diligent hours learning about them and their specific needs and learning styles. Lessons are generally one hour, in which we will cover specific coursework and complete a vocabulary test.
I have a can-do, non-judgemental attitude and welcome all students to be tutored by me, regardless of their proficiency in english. I want to teach students who are driven to achieve their best results and who are willing to apply themselves fully.
I have completed Master's Degree in English in 2008. Teaching is my passion and I take it seriously and professionally. I believe in student-oriented teaching methodology. I follow lesson plans so that learning activities be carried out effectively. I would like to work with average students.
I am passionate about teaching and working with children and youth. I believe in making lessons a two-way interaction and giving my students as many opportunities as possible to contribute to their own learning. At the same time, I also prefer a systematic approach towards learning and will plan my lesson according to the student's needs.
As an experienced lecturer, I base my teaching on the standard text books. With regards to my technique, I'm always mindful of the differences of every student. I always start with the basic things that they have to learn and with this I require them to listen. The next part will be an interactive part which I make it a point that it is an interesting and a knowledge-based interaction.
My teaching method is simple, it focuses on practical course work that helps the student to explore and act upon their potential. The course work is interactive and designed to help the student out of their comfort zone. I work with the students pace to reach desired end results.
Theory, Practical and role plays. My lesson are structured for beginners and those with limited understanding of English. It is designed for the student to relax and have fun learning and interacting with different life scenarios so they can relate to. his helps them learn faster and relate to their own way of speaking and culture.
My teaching methods are English and History, however, if need be, I am able to span out from these subjects. I structure my lessons around your needs and how you learn (visual cues, written, verbal). We could also have a mix up of these things, depending on what you would like and feel comfortable with.
My priority in teaching is to understand my learner's needs and goals, and to design my teaching program around these. There is no single methodology that suits all students.
I graduated as a teacher in 1985 with a Bachelor of Education and have a Cambridge University CELTA qualification from Milner University, Perth. I am available to teach English as a Second Language to Primary, Highschool and adult students. Having been born in Malaysia and being a fluent speaker/teacher of Indonesian, I have always had a passion and interest in other cultures.
I firmly believe that each child is deeply unique, and therefore, has deeply unique learning needs! For this reason, I custom create each and every lesson to suit each of my students. You can rest assured that your child will be provided with suitably challenging, thoroughly enjoyable, positive learning experiences.
As an English teacher, I have worked overseas teaching students of different ages and levels. It was a really enjoyable position for me as I easily built rapport with my students and I am a person who is always ready to help and care about others. I believe that the students have benefited from my lessons as I still receive feedbacks from my former students and their parents.
I began tutoring in 2012. I base my classes on student's current English proficiency level. I aim to help my students strengthen and revise their fundamental language skills, grammar, vocabulary etc. To prepare for IELTS, past exam papers will be a necessary practice.
As I am a pre-service teacher, my hands-on experience is minimal. Though, the lessons I have taught have always been fun and engaging! I believe education is the greatest gift a child can receive, and it is a privilege to become a teacher and a tutor.
I base the course on the purpose of students, for example, if they wish to pass the exam, I will focus on exam techniques. My teaching philosophy is to "teach less, review more". I prefer to teach students how to effectively learn by themselves, and review the content I taught on class through some activities which can motivate them to participate.
All of my lessons are individualised: at first, I will spend some time getting to know you and understand your goals, strengths, challenges and learning style. Broadly, I aim to ensure that the student has a sound understanding of the subject.
My approach is like using the English language as spoken everyday and of course spelling and the use of a dictionary to understand different meanings of "a word" as a word can have different meanings depending on how we say and use in a sentence.
My lessons will be revolved around any problems/struggles a student is having at school/generally with English.
I believe that we are all different, therefore, we learn in different ways. I like to adapt my lessons based on the students strengths and weaknesses. I like to use a lot of musics, didactic games, interesting readings/words activities.
