I am a retired UBC professor of History, Chinese Studies and Comparative Religion with 31 years of teaching and tutoring experience, looking for a part-time job tutoring English in my Kerrisdale apartment or nearby. Native speaker of English; also speak fluent Mandarin Chinese and some Spanish. Ph.D, University of Chicago. Can adjust to student needs.
My classes revolve around what the student needs. Rather than go through a course in the order of a book. We can start by discovering the areas of weakness in the students understanding. Working on those areas first is the best way to build confidence.
My home is Vancouver, Canada and I have the advantage of a Canadian accent which is easily understood throughout the English-speaking world. I can help you realize your English goals for career or social advancement with lessons that are designed specifically for your needs.
Reflect on what being a Spanish teacher means and what language teaching consists of. Know the basic aspects involved in foreign language teaching/learning and the different methodological approaches. Acquire the tools, techniques and abilities to teach different skills. Manage group dynamics and interaction in the classroom.
My teaching methods are typically intended for elementary and high school learners. It includes demonstration, easy to learn methods of teaching-learning process, interactive games, practice test, knowledge test, which are highly recommended for students with individual differences. I am a very approachable and patient teacher.
My classes are hatha-based with some vinyasa elements sprinkled in throughout. As a teacher it is my intention to share this transformational practice with others so that each may (re)discover and explore their own innate power. I focus on a combination of movement, alignment, breathwork, and meditation, from a place of sincerity and authenticity.
I believe every lesson is based around the individuals needs and ability. Lesson start with vocal warm up and depending on the students needs we would work on the relevant material. I am always willing to recommend material that is appropriate for the individuals vocal range and timbre.
It is imperative for students to be fully engaged. My teaching methods include focusing on conceptual foundations, developing a student’s own structure to understand, and providing real life examples, exercises and applications where relevant, all in a structured yet flexible approach.
I work with each student on an individualized basis to set personal goals and vary teaching approaches to meet the student's needs. I work with each student to develop gestured vocabulary cues, videos, games and exercises aimed toward the achievement of their personal goals.
I identify the profile of my students, their needs and how they areable to learn in order to help them.
My teaching methods are relatively flexible and simplistic. I know that each student learns differently and therefore I approach each lesson with an open mind and assess my students as they come.
Clear explanations and student engagement is the core of my teaching philosophy. In my opinion a good teacher communicates effectively the main topics and ideas of each lesson to students to motivate and equip them with the essential tools and courage to learn new topics through the lectures and on their own.
Mostly the Socratic method for the tutoring of individuals and small groups, I ask questions and then based on those questions we explore the concept you are trying to learn. If this is a long term tutoring position then I employ homework and exercises.
I structure my classes around the needs of the students using creativity, imagination and heart. I can suggest tools to use to make learning easier.
My teaching methods are focused in grammar, writing and speaking. Dynamic, well structured classes and adapted to the needs and goals for each student. Morevoer, I could give some tips to travel to my city, Barcelona, and teach you all vocabulary to be the best visitor in my country.
I focus more into the speaking expression, as grammar comes through it, I can explain the doubts people have on an specific topic and normally we'll do readings and songs and talk about everything and nothing to get the language fluency
My methods are completely based upon my personal experience and they continue to evolve as my students do as well. that being said right now i believe in three important factors which are first 1.the artist 2.the technician 3. the architect. All these three roles are important and i continually search for more.
My teaching methods often depend upon how much guidance my students need to help them reach their learning goals. For most of my lessons, I employ the Exploratory Strategy, because it gives my students agency over their own learning.
Usually, my classes are one-on-one as I like to focus on one student at a time. It helps me to understand where the student stands. I follow the course book that is used in the school. I provide them with alternative methods to approach a question, wherever possible.
My educational philosophy is to teach in a holistic setting, to understand the child as a whole entity. I teach beyond the classroom, that all aspects of life are interconnected. A positive classroom environment is based on strong classroom management. I trust, respect and learn from my students with clear communication and expectations.
From French culture/history to grammar, vocabulary, ora-written comprehension or expression, I can give different lessons that would encompass everything. Or if you have a good level in French, we can grab a coffee and talk in French. I'm very patient and I'd love to help you to improve your french.
My goal is to help students achieve their goals and learn to play the music that they are passionate about. Whether your goal is to play the music of your favourite artists, or to prepare for formal conservatory exams, I take the knowledge you need and break down into simpler, manageable that you can practice to build your skills.
I'm very flexible in my approach since I don't believe one size fits all when it comes to education and I aim to cater each lesson to the needs of the student. Though I'm primarily focused on songwriting and composition, I'm open to diving into whatever you're hoping to learn.
Learn through doing. I believe it is best to get in there and try things out. I provide demos and am always there to make helpful suggestions and critiques.
My methodology begins with a Q&A session where I can get to know your depth of understanding about financial models. I will then take a step by step approach helping you understand the different blocks of a financial model and how they function together. I will then help you create financial models of companies from scratch by creating the different blocks and linking them to one another. P.S.
My knowledge in Excel will be very relevant for beginners and intermediates in MS Excel. My teaching will be more helpful if you can state your need to learn Excel, where you want to apply, so that I can teach the relevant features of Excel rather than stuffing you with things you may never use.
Everyone learns differently, and because of this I tailor each lesson I give to the individual's needs, experiences, strengths, and weaknesses, meaning that each class or lesson I teach may be a little different. Despite these differences, any lesson I give will be well structured and organized, regardless in how it is taught.
I have been a teacher for more than 10 years. I create a learning program based on my student needs and make sure to have a proper follow-up session each week to give and receive feedback on the learning process. I make sure to give my students full resources to work on whatever basis they prefer (online, physical, etc.
Introducing new parts of the language gradually and then give the time and the activities to the student to practice. Using the new language is the best way to remember it. The book can be chosen with the student and it should be adecuate for his level and his needs. ''Homework'' can be given only if the student has time to complete it during the week (due to other studies or work).
My method is let the children learn and play both together. For example solving math puzzle.
