Licenced to teach MBTI (learning styles), SLII (learning development) and Apter (motivation).
My teaching approach is flexible to suit the learner's needs:
I will find out what you want to achieve. At this stage I will get to know the level of English you have already reached, then I will prepare step-by step lessons tailored for your needs.
My approach is largely conversational, with you choosing the topics which will be helpful to you. I will correct your errors, so you become more accomplished with pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar. In our first conversation we will decide which methods to use, such as role-plays, informal conversation, or a variety of other activities to help you.
I welcome conversational beginners right up to proficient speakers. It may be you want to speak better English with friends. Or, you may be a business manager who wants to able to give good English presentations to employees. Whatever your goals I will show you how to achieve them.
I'll never end up telling how effective my lessons are with Trissa. His ability to keep alive the lesson is unparalleled. If I had known her a few years ago, I would never have thought, as I did, that English was a difficult language for me.
Every single word can be an improvement. Trissa catches every detail to insert a new step. And her rhythm is always engaging!
Trissa's masterly way to conduct our lessons makes any subject turn into a resource mine for learning and enhancing the language in all its aspects. Thousands thanks.
I thank once again the greater ability of Trissa to capitalize on every cue of the lesson. Starting with her to the discovery of the English planet is a journey that never ceases to amaze. Icing on the cake, her summaries are a valuable vademecum.
