I prefer a more conversational approach that maximizes student talking time. I am very dynamic and like giving background about the origins of words.
I build on what the student already knows and I identify patterns that need correction and work at the root causes of these. I also bring out helpful grammar patterns and like to help students by using phonetics to get there English sounding natural.
I favour using visual aids and keep my classes dynamic. My English is more British based than American, but I am adaptable to both. I enjoy teaching and imparting skills and knowledge that empower people to reach their goals. I commend often, give constructive feedback and am always friendly and encouraging in class.
