I adapt each lesson to the particular needs of the student. I am able to find their weakness and build their confidence and skills in English, to improve and advance their grades. I understand that students can find literacy and English difficult, and am able to recognise if we need to go back a few steps (e.g. Grammar and Syntax) in order to progress in their writing.
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.
As a teacher of English, my method begins at reading. Once the necessary lesson has been read, thoroughly, I explain the context and the literal meaning of the lesson. Brainstorming for the views of the students is also important, especially while doing lessons on Literature. After a thorough discussion, an essay should be due for clarity of understanding.
Teaching is pointless if the student cannot see the value or the relevance of the topic. Consequently, I am student focused and work with the student to find perspectives and approaches that are relatable to them. Class is never boring if we try and open ourselves up to learning.
My teaching style puts the pupil first at all times. Whilst I ensure that all core skills are being addressed each lesson (understanding, reading, application, writing) the means to which this is achieved is through an understanding of what the pupil enjoys rather than a predetermined pathway that is used for everyone. Located in Camberwell, I can teach from my own home or from a student's home.
My lessons are aimed towards High School kids, and University students. I like to gauge my students before I plan a strict lesson. I believe every student learns differently and I am passionate about creating a lesson which is perfect for my student. I aim to create a safe, fun, and compassionate work environment that aids students in reaching their full potential.
My teaching methods are focused around individual students, first ascertaining what it is that they need to focus on, and working on those areas in a way that is most effective for their learning style and helps them achieve their goals. I often use guided exercises to help a student discover things for themselves, as I find this is the most effective way of cementing knowledge.
My approach to teaching English is by giving students a coherent and engaging structure through which they can complete their work.
I am a patient and caring teacher who spends time building a strong relationship with my students so I can better understand their learning styles. I believe in the power of early success as a motivation for students to work harder and achieve their goals, this means finding ways for them to feel good about what they are learning and how they are working.
I provide a safe and supportive learning environment for my students through building positive relationships as well as teaching engaging and enjoyable lessons. Along with my seven years of classroom teacher experience I have also completed over 100 hours of professional development and therefore can draw on a number of different strategies depending on the students learning style learning needs.
I structure my approach around the needs of the student.
I will talk to you about what you want and think you need and then at the end of the first lesson I will make decisions based on what you say and what I think. I will then find some tasks to do together.
Firstly I would help the students establish some goals, based on things they want to improve on in the upcoming topic, by targeting their weaknesses. Setting some objectives for the lesson so that the student knows what to expect and can feel fulfilled after completing the tasks.
I teach using a hands on, inquiry method to get students thinking about the 'why' behind their studies. I also use regular movement breaks as studies have shown this technique to be effective, particularly when working with younger children. I help students to gain the confidence they need to achieve success in their examinations and in regular classroom settings.
I believe in an ESL class that students should do most of the talking (so long as it's relevant!). Role-play and group discussions play a major role in classes for teenagers and for younger children I use lots of games and songs. I always start a lesson with a game (no matter the age) to recap the information learned in the previous lessons.
My lessons are almost always tailored to meet the needs of my students. This only changes with regards to group learning, where individual needs are taken into account, but cannot be prioritised due to numbers. However, I like to encourage my students to enjoy their learning and remove the fear and shame from the learning process.
I specialise in Essay writing (particularly for high school) and general grammar editing of any written work. I excel at writing and achieved 100% in all my Year 12 assessments by learning a few simple ways to write and structure an essay effectively.
I focus on core essay writing and editing skills that enable students to write at a high level well into the future. I also provide numerous exemplars of A+ standard assignments across a range of genres, including analytical essays, monologues, feature articles and speeches. Finally, I provide comprehensive feedback on assignments and written work to help students achieve their highest potential.
My classes are run focused on enthusiasm and fun! I am a bubbly, enthusiastic person and my classes reflect that. I'm looking for students that are as excited to learn as I am to teach.
My teaching method is student-centred and holistic. I understand that each student is unique and brings a range of skills, abilities and struggles to their education. I learn the specific ways in which individual students flourish and their behavioural patterns which hold them back.
Teaching is as much about learning how to learn as it is about lived knowledge, skills and experience....true intelligence comes from the body not the mind. In my classes, we work from the foundation that is already present within you the student, and develop the skills to reconnect and express, in whatever way is needed.
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.
I'm a calm, patient, organised and relaxed teacher whose lessons are geared towards anyone that wants help with their studies. I provide support in a safe environment that will allow students to thrive. I use the gradual release method of teaching, where I work through a problem, we work through it together and then they work through it on their own when they're ready.
My teaching method is mapping out all objectives that need to be met within a certain time frame and then systematically going over each objective according the child’s pace and needs. I am comfortable teaching from any textbook so long as I can make copies to plan what to do prior to the lessons.
I am an experienced teacher and Educational Doctoral student with the time to spend one to one to ensure your child achieves to their potential at school. If it is a lack of basics holding them back, I can fill those gaps! If they are not being extended, I can help them grow and develop new skills and attitudes. I can help edit and refine any item of written work for most purposes.
I believe that every child is unique hence the one size fits all method cannot be applied. I centre my lessons around the student themselves and operate within their strength zone but outside of their comfort zone. I believe in constant improvement hence my teaching method involves using their strengths to improve their weaknesses.
When teaching, I focus on three key things in every lesson: establishing a growth mindset, effectively differentiating for each student, and ensuring my students feel valued. A growth mindset is when a student moves from saying "I can't" to saying "I can't yet". I work with every student to ensure they feel capable of improving, even if it's their least favourite subject.
I am passionate about student-centred learning. I believe in the intelligence of every person and work with people's strengths. I understand that learning environments are not always set-up to work well for everyone's learning needs.
I teach verbally and critically, making students think about why things are the way they are. I implement some practice of skills learnt during lesson time, and occasionally assign homework so that students can practice their skills. Through the constant reviewing of work and the practice of new techniques, I believe that the student will flourish.
My teaching method is based on positive reinforcement and encouragement paired with practical assistance and proven study strategies. My aim is to provide guidance, increase students' sense of accomplishment and overall capability, provide structure to study activities and keep learning tasks engaging in order to unlock potential.
