As a TEFL teacher, my major goal is to boost your confidence so that you will communicate effectively in every situation. I help students enrich their reading, writing, grammar, speaking, and listening skills in English.
Being a teacher is a rewarding job and you can help people change their lives and really make a difference. On top of that, I`m compassionate, down-to-earth, well-spoken and always striving to be better. I always do my utmost to bring out the best in you.
It takes patience, time, compassion and dedicated practice to become a great English speaker. That said, learning can be fun and interesting! I always make sure that ultimately you enjoy what you are learning.
My teaching style is a communicative approach which FLUENCY is the primary goal. It allows you to speak 70% during our lessons and 30% for me to correct your mistakes from time to time, guide and assist you in order to make learning English much more meaningful, relevant and effective.
Each of my lessons is designed with the individual in mind and tailored to your learning preferences. In my class, I encourage you to speak a lot and express yourself freely. Don’t worry about making mistakes I’m always here to guide and assist you.
A lesson with me will be fun, engaging, interactive, laid-back and comfortable. In this way, you can learn English with me without feeling intimidated and pressured. Speak to me as you would to a friend. I`ve found that this is best way to learn and improve.
