English tutor with extensive ESL and elementary level English tutoring experience, specializes in working with young children from Kindergarten to grade 10.

Methodology

My teaching methods are formulated upon two criteria: critical thinking and fun learning. In my lessons, I bring material to my students that enforces their learning as well as constantly checking in and working on current school material that they may find challenging. Rather than spoon-feeding information to them, I allow my students to acquire long-lasting skills on their own accord and I am simply there to guide and nurture them in the right direction. Personally, I am a strong believer in the idea that children truly learn only when they are self-interested and self-invested in the material they are learning. To facilitate this type of learning, I try to produce a fun, interesting environment for my students to learn in so the skills they acquire and the information they learn will be carried with them easily.

Background

I am a Kinesiology student at the University of British Columbia and have gone through the entire British Columbia School System from Kindergarten all the way through to grade 12. I have been tutoring English (and some Math) for 3 years now, with kids ranging from 4 all the way to 14 years of age.
