MSc Business Analytics students offering lessons in School English for any level

Methodology

My teaching method comprises of active learning. I keep my students engaged rather than them having to listen to me talking. After I have explained the key concepts, I usually have a set of problems ready for them to practice.

Background

I was Teaching Assistant for 3 years and I taught 100+ students in a given year. During my role, I was also asked to conduct workshop sessions for students with class size varying from 50-70 students. Most of my students liked my teaching style which is why they preferred booking one-on-one sessions with me for help. They reported that they understood the concepts better and were happy to get good grades.
