Excellent English Teaching by a Canadian for the best results you require

Methodology

My teaching is based on student-centred learning and not on teacher talking. I extensively use audio and visual aids and group work. I constantly move around the class mentoring each group. I also try extensively to do differentiated learning where possible so that the better learners can explore more while those more challenged can come up to the expectation required.

Background

Over 40 years experience in Education teaching English and Math of which 9 years as Vice Principal of American International School in Dubai, U.A.E. I have taught in various curricula viz. British O levels and IGCSE, American and Indian ISC and CBSE
