I teach using the Communicative approach and adapt the lessons to my learners' needs. My main goal is to make sure my learners can actually speak English and be comfortable while doing so. :) We can focus more on grammar, speaking or any other type of exercise/activity as needed, but usually we hit all the skills needed to be able to speak/communicate in English in a balanced way.
My teaching methodology:
My teaching background:
I have been an ESL teacher for the past 7 years and I started out teaching at a language school, so I have experience working with groups of adults and one-on-one lessons, too. For the past couple of years I have been working as a private tutor and, more recently, an online private tutor.
My background outside of teaching:
I studied Literature in London, so I have a certain love for the language.:) Aside from teaching English, I also do translations, proofreading and a bit of copywriting.
