Intensive English

One point that made me surprise and feel fascinating to the class of Al is that he has a very standardized curriculum for almost every specific areas. In my case, since I am going to study abroad, he conducts lesson on three subjects: Practical use of phrasal verbs and idiomatic expressions, Logical discussion on controversial topics, Advanced Vocabularies. Also Al always try to check if he conducts his lesson suitably. He is the best English tutor that I've ever met.

Qualifications & Experience

My qualifications:

Bachelor's Degree in Engineering and CAE certificate in English from United Kingdom.

My work experience:

I have been teaching English for more than 10 years. I teach small group or one to one classes on line. Presently I have students from all parts of the world.

Teaching Approach

My Methodology in teaching English:

All my classes are based on 3 principals, they are all:

o Intensive

o Dynamic

o And inclusive

- But what all these words mean?

o Intensive means that in every 60 min class we will cover several topics.

o Dynamic means that all my classes are audio visual and tailor made to your specific requirements.

o Inclusive means that classes will cover all 4 aspects of learning English: listening, speaking, reading and writing.

Now let’s see how these classes are conducted:

- First I would take an evaluation test from you. This test will take about 30 minutes.

- I will tell you the result of the test immediately. On the basis of this test I will choose the best course level for you.

- Each of my classes are divided in to 4 sections:

o In the first section I will teach you one of the New Headway comprehensive text books obviously according to your level.

o In the second section I will focus on your conversational skills. This is done by listening to different audios followed by a discussion about them. Also every week we will have a structural discussion where we discuss in-depth issues such as education, Social media, advertising, entertainment and many more. Here you have the opportunity to put forward your views and opinions.

o In the third part of the class I will work on your vocabulary building, teaching you advanced vocabulary including phrasal verbs and idiomatic expressions.

o Finally I will work on your writing skills in addition to the paid class. I will give you writing tasks and correct them for you.

Course Range

- I teach general English courses from beginner up to advanced level.

- Also I teach special courses including:

o Business English at intermediate and advanced level. I use the Market Leader as the main text book but I will be teaching business English phrasal verbs, expressions and idioms alongside it.

o Job interview preparation. I have a crash 5 hour course to get you ready for your interview. I will teach you how to answer the typical questions which come up in an interview, you prepare your answers and then we will have a mock job interview checking your readiness. Also you will listen to many audio and sample interviews.

o Finally IELTS and TOEFL exam preparation. I have special courses prepared to get you ready for these all very important exams.

So if you are looking for intensive classes to achieve results quickly I am here to help you.
