I plan my lessons meticulously, so they are well-structured to engage my students in a way that encourages active participation. I have taught English to adults and adolescents of various nationalities and I know how to adjust my teaching strategies to diverse cultural backgrounds and learning styles.
My name is Sarah, I am a 24-year-old St. Thomas University Graduate from Canada who is about to complete her Masters of Arts in Integrated Education and Society. My lessons are meant for students learning English levels ranging from Beginner to high intermediate. I use McGill Unversity Canada's top University teaching Technique which enables the student to gain the Critical Thinking Skill.
I base my language classes on enhancing the four main language skills: listening, reading, writing and speaking, along with grammar and vocabulary. I always modify my classes according to the student's needs and goals. My classes are meant for middle and high school students, adult leaners, professionals wanting to learn English/French for a specific purpose, IELTS candidates.
I prefer a task-based and communicative approach. What this means is that I will give you worksheets that we can work on together and also have daily conversations on the theme of the lesson. I usually cater to my learners since everyone has a different learning style and different goals in mind. You'll find that I'm a relaxed person who likes to add humour to her lessons.
I prefer to teach concepts to build a strong base, and then build with examples. I encourage students to tackle questions by breaking them down and working through them by technique, rather than rote learning. I prefer to be approachable as I believe no question is to small to ask. Furthermore, as a researcher, I always encourage students to ask: "why".
I use fun and creative ways to teach such as games, acting, and drawing. I plan my activities to suit the individual's needs and preferences. Classes are taught in grade literacy level 8 and above. Feel free to express how I can help make your teaching experience better.
My teaching approach is The "Demonstrator", or "coach" style where I retain the formal authority role by showing students what they need to know. The demonstrator is a lot like the lecturer, but the lessons include multimedia presentations, activities, and demonstrations which gives me opportunities to incorporate a variety of formats including lectures and multimedia presentations.
I cater my teaching methods on a case by base basis, depending on the needs of my students. My varied writing, teaching, and life experience enables me to be able to implement and provide many different kinds of learning assistance.
My teaching methods are basically customized as per the requirement of an individual's learning needs as every learner has its own level. I completely focus on the weak points of the candidate which afterwards deal with my creative learning strategies. My classes are designed for every age group and professional.
I make classes fun usually by incorporating interesting practice exercises. I have been told I am very gentle and funny, drawing in your attention and ensuring the understanding of the class. I am best with children and teenagers, but I am certain I can teach anyone, as I have proven in the past.
My classes are meant for students/individuals who want to improve their grip on their English Language skill, so they can effectively communicate with peers, friends, coworkers, etc with confidence. I also cater to students/individual who are struggling with their IELTS or CELPIP score for PR application or getting into a program in university.
I approach English in close collaboration with the student - whether they want to work on conversation, reading comprehension or written English, I devise a personal program that suits their needs. I offer enrichment exercises for reading, spelling, grammar, vocabulary and essay writing.
I focus on practical skills that you can use in your academic and personal life. I use a number of different activities, games, and approaches to ensure that your education is balanced and comprehensive. I teach speaking, listening, reading, writing, and grammar.
I have a broad range of methods including TPR (Total Physical Response) for teaching and supporting English language learners of all ages, helping them to meet set goals. I strive to make the learning process interactive, exciting, and fun. Having lived and worked outside Canada for over 20 years I am able to communicate across cultural lines and adapt to student needs.
I make sure to create class content that is important to the student(s), including useful, every-day vocabulary to make the students feel comfortable in their new environment. My classes include grammar, verb tenses, local expressions, cultural information, and are open to students from beginner to advanced level.
My teaching method consists of practical and day to day method of teaching. My classes are for any age (group) of people willing to learn English. I'm an outgoing and funny person who will make teaching and learning process easier for you.
The Direct Method The benefit of using this method is to immerse students in English. This is done by providing demonstrations on how to use the language with the the help of visual aids. The rules of grammar are not taught directly. Grammar rules are avoided as much as possible and there is emphasis on correct pronunciation.
I use a lot of conversational speaking in my classes as well as course materials. A typical class would be to practice some simple conversations and then move on to the courseware. During the study period I often elaborate and create more opportunities to talk, correcting the student's pronunciation and grammar as we learn.
During my tenure with the school, I taught primary and kindergarten students. I also tutored secondary students and adults who wanted to speak better English. During class I prefer to engage the students into little discussions, therefore giving them an opportunity to speak and learn to express themselves comfortably using the language.
Sometimes, remembering new language concepts can be challenging. I believe in experiential learning and the immediate application of new knowledge. Using a holistic approach, I believe the best way to learn is by doing. My teaching methods focus on communicative practices as plans of improvement.
I base my classes on having fun. Starting with a warm-up to get you in the English mood, followed by the lesson of the day, then an activity to solidify the grammar points and get some real practice. I like to end with any specific questions you may have at the end.
Depending on the student's needs, I incorporate the right approach based on these five methods: 1. Silent or Receptive Stage: During this stage students may be silent or use non-verbal communication, like pointing or nodding their head. The focus is on building the confidence it takes to actually speak and on learning basic vocabulary. There’s no language fluency at this stage in the game.
I approach my lessons with structure but I am flexible to the different learning styles of my students. Everyone is unique in how they learn. I will tailor a unique program to best meet your requirements. I look forward to helping you achieve your goals.
I base my lessons on the interests of the students as well as what objectives they want to reach. I'm very flexible and creative in my teaching methods since not all students learn the same way. I use a variety of different methods and media to help students understand the material.
In general, classes follow a format of Engage-Study-Activate, or some variant of that approach. The class begins with engaging students with warm-up activities designed to get students into the proper mindset to speak and listen in English and prepare them for the lesson material that follows.
When tutoring students in English, I start with learning what the students want to learn or what level of proficiency they hope to achieve. Depending on the student's needs, I typically give 1-1.5 hour long lessons that consist of multiple activities and, if asked, I assign homework to be completed before the next lesson.
My teaching methodology when teaching English online is of course dependent on the subject.
I am very sensitive to culture and different age groups to incorporate subjects that will be intriguing and interesting for my students in ways that they can make personal applications rather than dull lessons that can be hard to remain excited about. I work to make my classes very practical but also professional for my students.
I will tailor the course according to your English level and interest to keep it engaging for you! I believe the best way to improve is through using the language often, so I will provide you with many opportunities to practice in class!
I try to make my lessons fun, while at the same time, meaningful and relevant to the needs of my students! I try to use real life situations as inspiration for my lessons. I specialize in Academic English, but can definitely help with other focuses.
