I am trying to use all kinds of media (videos, music songs, movies, games) in order to make teaching as entertaining as possible, but sometimes the use of "classical" teaching methods is inevitable:) Especially skilled to teach Business English!
As an academic and a teaching scholar, I am committed to the intrinsic value of post-secondary education and scholarship. My teaching and research are inspired by the hermeneutic tradition and grounded in Boyer’s model of the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL).
My teaching methodology is simple: I treat every student as an individual with entirely unique needs. Hence, all of my sessions are student-driven. In order to best accomplish this, I conduct a thorough phone assessment prior to the first session to create an individualized study plan that will best meet the present desires and needs of my clients.
My teaching methods are tailored to the student's needs. Essentially, we work together to pinpoint which areas of essay writing you struggle with, and then we work on improving your skills through writing exercises and practice essays. Of course, I can also help you with your own assignments and guide you through the essay writing process.
My classes with structure and flexibility, depending upon the needs of the students. For high school or junior high school students, I follow Alberta Education's curriculum as much as possible. I like teacher / student(s) discussion. I assign and review homework.
A teacher of writing and literacy needs to know each student's competencies. I use the Socratic approach, encouraging both answers and questions. The student's age, literacy level, education, occupation and goals determine the beginning. Depending on class size and duration, concepts involving structure, theme, planning, plot, character development, designing your essay.
"Maximize LTT (Learners' Talking Time) while minimizing TTT (Teacher's Talking Time)" could be the maxim that encapsulates my teaching methodology. This way, I get my students to explore first hand the world of their target language to its fullest.
I've been teaching English literature for last twenty years and my methodology is to teach literature in a way that students are involved. I believe teaching is a fun but that fun should be created by a wonderful producer of a play.
My methodology depends on the needs of the student. For those looking for help with English as an additional language, I can be a conversation partner as well as a tutor in vocabulary and grammar. For those needing help in essay writing, I can provide exercises and tips on writing with style and clarity.
I am comfortable instructing individually or in a group setting. I can adapt to different age groups and learning objectives. A typical class would involve a review with the student on the area of focus or difficulty and historical work. This should lead to a teaching plan with specific goals and objectives mutually agreed to by the student and/or relevant supervisor (i.e. parent).
I prefer discussion-based learning. I want to engage in conversations on what you are learning and delve further into the material to deepen your own understanding. If you present a novel or text, we will outline key points (characters, themes, settings, etc.) and work through why each is valuable to the whole work.
Simplify grammar and use questions instead of abstract explanations to become proficient in its use. One on one instruction allows students to progress at their own speed. As a professional writer/journalist writing instruction is assisted by my experience. An easy method to teach grammar was accomplished by simplifying the process, using questions instead of explanations wherever possible.
I am a Kinesthetic learner, so as much Hands-On learning as possible is best. I find many people learn best this way, and do not recognize it, or do not know what resources to use to get the best out of their studies.
I believe that students need to be excited by their learning. If there is something that they are not enjoying I believe that there is always a way to make learning exciting. Learning and school should be fun, exciting and should meet the student's needs.
I am a Commerce Graduate from Mumbai University,India. After working for 14 years I decided to take a break and make a change in my career. I have 2 years of experience in home tutions in India. I explain lessons and take periodic tests too. I am friendly person and a good communicator. I listen and understand problems of students.
I base my classes on the needs of my students. Every student is different, and I always take the time to learn about my students' goals and work with them to reach their goals. I care about the success of my students and make myself available to help as much as possible.
I am enthusiastic in what I do and I like using visual aids. I am very flexible in what I do and am able to be flexible in helping you in the way you learn best in for the best success.
My teaching methods are flexible. To assess the kind of assistance a student needs, I encourage the submission of a draft writing. From there, we can set up an approach that works ( such as comments on the document, video conference or in-person meeting if in Edmonton). My tutoring services are intended for University students who would like to improve their writing.
I focus on true understanding over rigid mechanics, and my goal is to make you grasp the purpose of your work. We will approach each project as a problem to be solved. Working from goal to reality, I hope to make education meaningful and USEFUL.
I believe that all students learn differently, and that said, each student may need something different from me. As a teacher, it is my duty to ascertain how each student learns from me best, and individualize their needs based upon this assessment.
My teaching methods are based on patience, and getting to know each individual because everyone learns differently. I will hone in on each person's strengths and weaknesses, as well as the way they operate personality wise and be sure I offer them an individualized learning plan.
I have wanted to be a teacher from the moment that I entered junior kindergarten at 3 ½ years old; the well-used chalkboard hanging on the wall of my childhood bedroom will attest to that. From the moment I was old enough to, I volunteered myself for as many opportunities to work with children as I could.
I base my tutoring sessions on the needs of the specific student. I like to have a discussion with both the parents and the child in order to gain more insight on those specific academic needs. I like to build a positive and fun relationship with my students based on mutual respect and a positive attitude toward learning.
I try meet my students exactly where they are in terms of their knowledge and skills, and I help them grow beyond their level. I'm very patient, non-judgmental, and well-spoken. I have taught in the past and have been told that I am very easy to understand and also fun to learn from.
I base my lessons on each student individually. I provide a base lesson to see where student should begin and provide progressive lessons to introduce the English language and increase student productivity.
My teaching philosophy hinges on the individual student's needs. Every youth has their own unique way of learning. It's not about how smart they are, but how they are smart. With that in mind I focus on skill building, and teaching ways of thinking and questioning. From there I scaffold knowledge and understanding, building on previous lessons.
As someone who strives to be as effective of a teacher as I can be in the future, I have developed a style of teaching that takes into consideration the strengths and weaknesses of the students I am am working with. I ensure that any student I work with is dealt with fairly and companionably, and structure all my lessons in a way that will ensure I can get the best out of anyone I am working with.
I tailor learning to meet individual student's needs. First I gather as much information about a student as possible, using records, testing, interviews, portfolio statements, parent information and behaviour/work habits checklists and anecdotals.
Each person is different - they learn at a different speed and in a different way. I offer 1-1 private sessions with tailor made materials and activities to suit that particular person.
I believe I can really help you, with my experience, my University English Degree and my Principal Certification, by working one on one or in small groups, I can foster creative, risk taking curriculum advancement opportunities. Through dedication, humour, repetition and hard work, I can help any student improve their written and spoken English language.
