TEACHING METHODOLOGYI strongly believe that each person learns differently and has unique abilities that has to be taken into account when teaching them. Each person will also require different areas of their language to be improved, it may be speaking, reading, listening or writing or any combination of these. It is therefore imperative that I determine these requirements before drawing up detailed lesson plans. Quite often the learner’s needs change over the course of a few lessons – they may not be as bad at speaking as they thought, but rather require more writing practice.
My overall teaching style is more informal and not sticking to detailed lesson plans word for word: Maintaining flexibility is key.
It is also important that we have fun while learning and that teaching is the best way of learning.
All lessons are via Skype or Zoom and are 50 minutes long.
After receiving the student’s request, we will draw up a preliminary Learning Plan for discussion during the first (free) lesson.
