Experienced teacher/lecturer (20yrs) and pellucidly clear communicator teaches English/ESL in Vancouver Online.

Methodology

A very approachable and knowledgeable teacher with a vast range of experience in classrooms, lecture halls, seminars and tutorials. I completed a master's degree in psychoanalytic studies and a degree in philosophy from Trinity College, Dublin.

For teaching English to beginners or advanced students I focus on the basics of informal logic, vocabulary building through list making and reading aloud. These skills are fundamental to the way I teach English or indeed most subjects. Writing regularly, reading and next day revision/rewriting are a big part of the strategy I employ. Learning is most fruitful when we exercise our ability to recollect data.

I always remind students that there is a huge difference between 'recognition' of knowledge and 'recollection' of knowledge. Understanding and applying the principles of that difference are the essence of good. Someone may ask you for example if you know something and provide you with a list of answer to which you can 'recognize' one as the right answer. Legitimate knowledge however comes when a learner can recollect correct answers without cues.

Background

I've been teaching psychoanalysis, philosophy, psychology, English, Chemistry, Mathematics and General Science University level, College, Secondary School level and privately for over 20 years. The teaching style I prefer focuses on clarity, memorization techniques and emphasizes logically correct argumentation throughout. My students find me engaging and stimulating and they learn an enormous amount from the lessons I offer. It is very important for me that students enjoy the process of learning. It is a lifetime activity and cultivation of that attitude fosters the best kinds of minds and students.

Details

Cancellations must be given 48 hours prior to scheduled lessons unless an emergency or medical health issue is the prevailing cause/s of the cancellation. Cancellations outside of these reasons will incur a cost of 35 percent of the lesson. Cancellations should be made by phone, text or email preferably in that order. Before I give a lesson I prepare it fully. These preparations can often take up to six hours per hour of teaching. Therefore, a cancellation can be a costly time-loss to myself and other students.
