I have extensive experience with a range of students, but most recent experience is with secondary school students in groups, as well as more student-centred individual tutorial classes. My classes focus on achieving clear language based learning objectives outlined from the outset, either directly from the student, or achievable goals that I feel will be most beneficial to the student.
I approach each student individually and techniques used are vast and flexible, depending on what the students´goals are. Above all, I feel that patience, empathy and teacher-student rapport are most valuable for effective classes.
