Teaching Approach

I focus on turning the student into a self-improving learner.

My goal is to give students the tools so that they can form and make use of the language by themselves.

I put emphasis on activating the students independence and autonomy from the beginning because it is evident that the student must want to learn so that education is effective.

I give students the freedom to talk and explore while under the supervision of a confident and well-spoken English speaker.

Patience, comfort on the part of the student, and persistence are three things that I always keep in mind.

About me

Me llamo Jethro Gleeson. Soy de Londres, Inglaterra. Inglés es mi idioma natal. También hablo español y tengo ganas de aprender portugues. Leo mucho y disfruto de hablar con una variedad de personas. Así que sé el inglés elevado y el inglés callejero.

Estudio para alcanzar el nivel C2 en español y casi lo he logrado. Ya que vivía en España y Peru me he acostumbrado a una variedad de español y me encanta la riqueza lingüística del mundo hispano. Al fundo es el mismo idioma. Sólo cambian los dichos y la jerga.

Teaching Approach

Enfoco ayudar al alumno convertirse en autodidacta. Pongo énfasis en la indepencia y la autonomia de los estudiantes puesto que es importante que el estudiante quiera aprender para que las clases tengan éxito.

Yo les doy a mis estudiantes la libertad de hablar e intentar usar el idioma bajo la supervisión de un maestro confiado. Pacienca, lo comodidad del estudiante y persitencia son tres cosas que siempre tengo en cuenta.
