I follow constructivist learning theory. My learners learn by doing. I give them tasks and projects which they perform repeatedly while using English throughout the process, until they approach proficiency. I also dig in to the learners' areas of interest, and try to give them speaking, listening, reading and writing activities within those areas at least 40% of the time to maintain engagement.
My methods are based on a child’s capabilities. The ability to learn is just important as enjoying. The methods that are used will be remembered for a lifetime. I also implement methods used from my education. I believe encouraging children to find their own methods with suitable guidance.
I typically teach my techniques, go through I structure I prefer and then get the student to recognise these sections in their assessment. Structure is the key, then we can focus on literary and language techniques. I will try my best to teach the student in ways that benefit him/her, as every student learns differently.
Using an individualised approach using a Reggio Emilio philosophy of utilising the student's interests in a relaxing and friendly environment. Being bilingual assist me in understanding and empathising with people who need to learn English as a second language.
Hello! I am a 24 year old American male who graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I majored in Earth & Environmental Sciences and minored in English and am passionate about both subjects. I recently moved to Hobart and would love to gain some more tutoring experience before I return to the States to pursue a master's degree in education. I am patient, easy-going, and friendly.
SHOW THE CHILD THE WAY, EXPLAIN THE STEPS AND THEN LET THE CHILD FIND HIS OWN WAY, WITH YOU ALWAYS STANDING AT THE BACK GIVING YOUR FULL SUPPORT AS AND WHEN REQUIRED.
I believe as the student is the center of every lesson, then the content and approach should be based around them. I am very adaptable and create lessons that cater to the learning preference of the student, whether that be visual, auditory, kinesthetic or otherwise.
I have always found didactic teaching in my years of school and university very ineffective. I only understand the use and value of new knowledge if I know how to apply it - through exercises and interactive practice. I will not give monologues to tutoring students, but help them understand what they are learning.
My name is Hannah Rothwell and I am first year university student who is offering English tutoring to school students of all ages. My aim is to tailor tutoring sessions to the students individual needs and aid them in reaching there full potential by working with them on basic English, assignment work, oral presentation and exam prep.
My method depends on the student I am tutoring but I normally start by having a conversation about the topic and making a big mind map. Although simple this can be extremely helpful in exam time. For each idea together we construct paragraphs so that the student feels confident, having both and in depth and broad knowledge of the topic.
I want to know where you are at on the journey to learn to read. Once that is established we can extend the distance you have travelled. The best way to assist is by building through an educational relationship based on honesty, trust and understanding. This shows your learning style. To do this I must get to know you, the individual.
I base my classes as interactive as possible. I like my students to have fun while learning and make the lessons memorable. To do this I will link my teaching to real life experiences and use many resources. I also like students to have active learning experiences rather than being 'talked at'.
I am a very enthusiastic person, and love working with children for this reason. I have found that the primary aged students feed off such enthusiasm, and are more inclined to engage themselves with their learning. I know each student learns in different ways, and I enjoy finding creative ways to help connect the student to their learning.
My teaching method comprises of teaching children in a fun manner that develops critical thinking. Learning should be a fun, enjoyable process that engages both student and teacher. I don't believe in getting children to remember facts to simply recite back.

I believe that each student is different and so tailor my courses to best suit my students. I think the best way to tackle a problem is to break them down and then set achievable goals. Nothing is impossible when you break things down.
My lessons aim to be fun and engaging while also targeting specific learning aims. I use a lot of hands on learning to assist retention of information and lessons are very student-directed. I consider myself a caring, motivating person that offers positive reinforcement to assist you in meeting your learning goals.
I use a student-centred approach and base my teaching methods on the premise that all students are unique and require different approaches. I am flexible and have the capacity to adapt to the needs of the individual. Everybody has the capacity to learn, but it is up to the educator to reveal a students method of learning.
I usually start with a thorough diagnostic assessment . I also like to find out what interests students have so that I can plan lessons around them individually as far as possible. If it were literacy I would usually do a Woodcock assessment. For other writing/ reading skills I would ask for an essay to look at to get me started on where "gaps" in understanding or skills lie.
I base my teaching method on a methodical approach. Initially I will establish a student's ability and identify areas that require attention. Once the foundations are solid I move on to more complex and demanding tasks which I demonstrate and lead the student through making sure that the learning area is completely understood.
I would like to get to know my student first because that will help me to prepare my lessons.e.g. whether my student can work for a full hour then take a break or whether my student needs a break every 30 minutes. To begin, I would usually start with asking the student if he/she have any homework or assignments that may be due soon so we can work through it.
My teaching method depends 100% on the learner. One-on-one tutoring gives a unique opportunity to adapt teaching style over time. In my previous work in Special Education, each of my dyslexic students learned differently. For some, I would display an algebra problem as visual blocks, for others I would take a step-by-step classic approach.
I believe in face to face teaching/one-on-one approach rather than online methods. I feel this would give a more personal touch and get to know people very well. Feel free to approach me with any queries you may have. Your smile is my satisfaction.
I know each student learns differently and so my methodology changes from student to student. I am comfortable working with students who struggle, or need a little extra time and assistance. I understand that building confidence in a subject is just as important as teaching the subject itself.
I base my approach on what is the objective. I build smaller goals based on that objective, and attain it one at a time. Though time is of the essence, I believe that when learning is concerned, it is best for it to take time. If an approach doesn't work, I don't force it. Instead, I try a different way.
I have a very active and energetic teaching methodology. For me it isn't about what you're teaching but who you are teaching, believing that each individual learns and interacts differently depending on their best ability to learn. I am quite a visual learner myself, so my teaching will reflect this. However, I like to get to know an individual before deciding what is best for their learning.
My teaching method is friendly and fun! I am not set in any teaching plan - we will find what method suits you best and use that to help you improve. For school settings, I will read through the task sheet and marking rubric to fully understand what your teacher wants before using this to aid in my tutoring.
My teaching method is to approach a concept from where the student's understanding is clearest, to build a firm understand from the foundation up. I love empowering students and helping them to realise their own potential, helping to build a brighter future.
I tailor my classes to the curriculum of every individual student, working on the key skills and constantly referring to the rubric and criteria.
I like to tailor my lessons to students' needs and individual goals - I am happy to help with homework, clarify school lessons, as well as provide extra relevant texts and resources if students would like.
