MY TEACHING STYLE:
ūüĒĻOne of the BEST WAYS to learn a foreign language is to LIMIT TEACHER TALKING TIME and INCREASE STUDENT'S TALKING TIME. This means student will get to practice as much as possible to get comfortable with the language. ūüĒĻ

ūüĒĻEmploy a variety of teaching strategies to engage ALL LEARNING STYLES AND LEVELS. ūüĒĻ

ūüĒĻLessons will include English for EVERY DAY USE and PRACTICAL, USEFUL ENGLISH.ūüĒĻ

ūüĒĻQuestions and TWO-WAY DIALOGUE are to be encouraged. ūüĒĻ

ūüĒĻPLAY AND GAMES can be a useful interactive tool to teach English as well as CREATIVE LESSONS lessons allowing students to use their imagination for STORYTELLING AND ROLE-PLAYING.ūüĒĻ

ūüĒĻI provide opportunities to PRACTICE NEW VOCABULARY.ūüĒĻ

ūüĒĻūüĒĻIf you need to cancel a class, please let teacher know and cancel class 12 hours before it startsūüĒĻūüĒĻ
