The best ESL instructor and resume writer / certified IELTS instructor in downtown Victoria

Methodology

I teach communicative classes to all levels of English learners. I like to use real world language and examples to help students improve their lives while they live in Canada. Learning a language is an ongoing process that takes a great effort, but when you work with me, it will feel natural.

A typical class is 60 to 90 minutes and involves: a warm-up activity, a reading activity to show new vocabulary or grammar, some practice activities so that you can make sure that you understand the concept, then a more free activity like speaking or listening so you can try out the language and increase fluency. All classes are topic based, and can be chosen by the student. Each class is custom made for the student, and can focus on: speaking fluency or accuracy, grammar, reading/writing, listening, pronunciation, test taking (IELTS), or vocabulary.
