My teaching method varies from student to student. Well, I do believe that every student has strengths and weaknesses. So, as a tutor it is important to work on the weaker areas by providing the customized study programs based on individual needs. This will result in overall development of the students.
Student-centred learning is my preferred methodology. I work with my students to determine the most effective methods for them to achieve their goals. I support students to identify their learning style and develop a learning plan based on their needs and timeframe.
Everybody learns differently and I believe if a student isn't learning then the teacher isn't educating that particular student in the most beneficial way. I like to make lessons enjoyable, planning different sentences structures and grammar points around students hobbies.
I have a BA in English, along with plenty of TEFL experience. I enjoy working with students from all walks of life. Most of the individuals I teach are enrolled Hong Kong students learning English - so I have plenty of experience working and helping individuals who are seeking to gain higher levels of confidence in the language.
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 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.
My teaching method is providing a thorough lecture involving my student as we progress through the lecture. Working on essential understanding of the topic through examples and a thorough understanding as a step by step reinforcement .
My online business and lessons' material, I teach English without teaching English. I am an inductive teacher, I guide students toward answers to their questions. I directly correct student's pronunciation where there is a communication breakdown. I introduce and use slang vocabulary to accompany formal vocabulary.
My belief is that to be a good teacher there are three essential ingredients: 1. Subject Knowledge. A teacher must know what he/she is talking about 2. Rapport with students. Where possible, Classes should be as entertaining as possible. 3. Dedication. A teacher must give 100% effort to his/her students. I follow these ideologies when I have (a) student(s).
I am a relevant, creative very experienced student-centred teacher. I respect and understand the needs of diverse cultural backgrounds. I have years of experience teaching all levels of English from little to no English to Academic standard for Secondary students and adults.
As a quality teacher I aim engage the students and make learning a joy as well as provide, for all students in my care, the skills necessary for them to be successful in their career and satisfy their immediate educational goals. With younger students, educational objectives are achieved through a partnership between the student, the teacher and the family where appropriate.
