English has always been one of my favourite subjects and I enjoy teaching it to others! Whether it be essay writing or comprehension of a text, I aim to create lessons which are tailored to the individual needs of my students and whatever they wish to achieve in terms of their studies. I also work around my uni timetable to tutor students whenever it is most convenient for them.
I am a nurturing tutor, however, I don't like excuses, a growth mindset is a must in my lessons. Nothing is impossible and my lessons are geared towards those who would like to realise their potential in a safe and fun environment where you will be challenged and valued for your effort. If you are prepared to put the work in, you will reap greater rewards.
My teaching philosophy is centred on understanding. My belief is that if a student has the proper groundwork in place, they can achieve anything! Hence, my focus tends not to be on just completing a specific assignment or essay but on a deeper comprehension of texts and questions.
My teaching method is tailored to the needs of my client. I teach writing, which is as individual as the client itself. I can help you to improve your writing whether you are working on a book, article, essay, website...
My favourite teaching method is face to face teaching whilst also involving practical components to further expand the student's knowledge while being hands on.
I am a vibrant and engaging teacher and love to provide hands-on tasks. I have an enthusiastic approach to Literacy and love to help children explore creative writing, poetry and structured texts. I also focus heavily on correct grammar use and spelling.
My teaching method is guided by the individual. Everyone learns differently, and I work with my students to find the best way for them to succeed. Using everyday life as the base, so that what I am teaching is relevant and innovative.
I allow my students to take the wheel on where they want to go and what they want to do with each session. I work with students to concentrate on grammatical aspects and suggest ideas in relation to essay writing and reports. All tutoring sessions will be tailored to the students' needs. I am offering to draft work online or meet in person at the Adelaide City Library.
I aim to support the child in line with their classroom teacher and provide supplementary learning when gaps are identified. Where possible I would provide practice as part of games or enjoyable activities. I always attempt to appeal to a child’s interests and creativity.
I have lived in three countries and have a very wide understanding and general knowledge. I’ve also learned a bit about counselling and will help students feel more comfortable and confidant. I like to devise games and things which make learning new things easier.
My teaching methodology will differ depending on the age and prior knowledge of the students I am engaging with. I believe it is important to determine the Zone of Proximal Development (where they are at, basically) of the child before determining the best course of action to properly scaffold a learning approach and lesson plan.
I've always been a very personable teacher, one who is very approachable and easy to get along with. Students can be relaxed in my presence and they shouldn't feel pressured or anxious about making mistakes. We all make mistakes and that's how we learn and improve.
Creative and flexible learning focussed around the student and their interests and abilities. I am able to assist students with existing school tasks or help master specific skills through extended learning opportunities.
I am a Traditionalist teacher and believe that students need this type of teaching to bring them on. I do not believe that lessons at all times can be made attractive as it is hard slog for some. I work on praise and developing confidence in ones own ability.
I am a very enthusiastic tutor. I believe it is important to incorporate some kind of fun activity when working children. First I try to get to know the student, then plan the schedule according to what they are comfortable with.
My teaching method depends on the learner and their preferred learning style. Typically, I use discussion and practical approaches and avoid lecturing. I find that it's essential to build rapport with my students in order to increase their motivation, so this is a focus at the beginning.
I like to take a fun and direct approach to learning where learning is achieved at a pace which is applicable to the student. Each student learns in a different way and I believe that having patience and understanding with students about the way they learn is key in them moving forward and developing a deeper understanding.
My teaching method is largely based on the needs of the individual. I used to write lesson plans for children with special needs, be that for students who needed extra help or those gifted who required extension work. There are many different learning styles and methodologies, the best approach is to work out what the needs of that particular individual are and work with that.
My teaching method is based on the student's particular interests. I believe teaching can be done in many ways. My primary way of teaching is to start off with spelling and reading. The key to becoming a great essay or story writer is for your words to flow effortlessly. With my guidance and encouragement, any student with a passion or goal will be on their way to achieving it.
I like to use an interactive approach and work closely with what the student is leaning at school. I provide help with homework.
My teaching methodology is firm, but gentle. I believe in reformative practices, and continuous reporting. I value a growth mindset.
I enjoy working one on one with students, focusing our work on their particular needs in the area of literacy. I work mainly with younger primary students and focus on improving literacy as a means to improve all other areas of learning. Lessons often include a revision of phonograms and the application of spelling rules in English.
My personal teaching philosophy is inspired by American educator, Rita Pierson. In her inspirational TED talk "Every Kid Needs a Champion", she poignantly states that "kids don't learn from people they don't like!". This statement truly resonates with me, and I believe education should be centred around human connection and meaningful relationships.
My teaching method is first and foremost to cater to each student individually. This entails supporting the student where they need help, and assisting in any writing developments which the student or their educational facility requires. My specialty is creative writing, but I aim to help each student achieve their goals in whichever area of writing they require.
I find a hands on approach makes learning much easier, however I am able to adapt and work with however you or your child may work best.
I am passionate about play based learning in which focuses on children's interests to help develop further knowledge. My lessons will focus on the Big 6 of learning to read and write. I will develop lessons individualised to your child's unique needs. The professional development I have engaged in has focused on developing literacy skills, please see my CV for further details.
As a tutor, the key is to listen carefully to the students’ individual needs, personality and learning style, in order to identify and bring clarity to the areas requiring support. It is essential to build rapport, to encourage and motivate, to develop a safe and supportive space. The key to learning is feeling relaxed, heard and valued.
I base my teaching on the school curriculum , concentrating on phonic awareness. Assist students in achieving their own goals in intervention programs and allow them to celebrate their achievements . Along with this provide evidence with up to date records that can be accessed by their class teacher .
My approach is to certainly acknowldege what needs work but importantly, to notice what is done right and build on this. My lessons are geared towards univeristy students, particularly in the Humanities and English as a Second Language students.
I play a game or do a warm-up to let them know they can be human. Usually, I then give them a broad word picture of what is coming, very broad. After introducing myself, I enlist student tasks to speak or react to. One task, often fun. I invite their take on what happened, then teach them a main lesson, word, style or grammar.
