First and foremost, I focus on the students needs; why they have come to me for private tuition, what their goals are, and what they hope to achieve in the short and long term. Based upon their needs, I categorise my lessons into easy amounts and provide relevant homework to be completed each week. I am highly approachable, and encourage questions and discussion about the topic in hand.
I have been teaching online English as a foreign language for two years and have a very high standard of results. I try to make my lessons as fun and as enjoyable as possible, as I believe that laughter is the best way to cement knowledge!
