I tailor my approach to the needs, interests and goals of students by using a variety of methods and materials
I prefer to use a communicative approach where the focus is on using the knowledge and skills acquired instead of focusing on accumulation of information.
I like to guide students by teaching, showing, doing together, letting students try and then giving feedback
I have more than 16 years of experience teaching/tutoring a huge variety of English courses to students from more than 50 different countries!!!!! I have a TESOL certificate and a Masters in Education from the University of British Columbia (one of the top 30 universities in the world). I am smart, creative, friendly, respectful, reliable and FUN! I tailored my approach to the specific needs, interests and level of my students with the focus of maximizing their performance.
I met Armindo at a nursing school teaching English for nurses from foreign countries. He is a passionate and knowledgeable English teacher and has a positive spirit with warm heart. Studying English can be overwhelming for many students; however, if you’re with him, you will be able to keep your motivation up until you achieve your aim.
Armindo creates an atmosphere of mutual respect, joy, and caring in the classroom. His warm personality and friendly disposition enables him to easily connect with his students. He also promotes an environment that is free from stereotyping by gender, race, culture, or religion. The thing I like the most is that he plans some group activities to motivate learning and have some fun during classes! :)
Besides describing him as a friendly teacher, he is a patient and well-reputed instructor that is received among students as well. You would acquire knowledge from a relax and unstressed way of his teaching. In addition, he owns decades of teaching experience which is credible and trustworthy to students.
He is the best teacher i ever had seen. He is friendly , dedicated ,knowledgable and passionate about teaching. He gives his 100% effort to teach the students and also he gives an extra effort to teach the students who needs an extra care.
Armindo was so outstanding, understanding and caring, who proved that learning can be joyous and a pleasant experience. He was creating an environment of enthusiasm for learning, appreciation for growing and room for making mistakes along the way. I am grateful to have you as my teacher. Highly recommended.

When I got my first job as an academic English instructor, I came across a material on writing different types of sentences that made me say to myself "Wow! This is gold! I wish someone had taught me that!" Seeing my students later use the principles I taught them and noticing the amazing difference it made in the quality of their writing gave me enormous pleasure. Since then I have devoted myself with passion to the art of assisting international students improve their language skills, particularly speaking and writing.

Tutoring gives me an opportunity to touch someone on an individual level. I can better know the person who is seeking help, which allows me to tailor the content and methodology to the student's needs. Consequently , better results are achieved, and both the student and I are happy.
I have worked with amazing people throughout m career and a few of them have had a more powerful impression on me. Shelley was someone who worked extremely hard to provide the best learning experience to her students, and her devotion surely impressed me. Lisa was not only quite fun and caring but also extremely knowledgeable.
Hard work and a positive attitude can take you all the way.
