I work with dedicated students who are still studying in primary/secondary education and international students who speak English as a second language. My teaching method varies from student to student depending on which structure best fits them. But the basic techniques are: polishing the foundation, lots of worksheets which will be marked with feedback, assessments, and a bit of homework if required.
As a journalist, an excellent grasp of the English language is key. During my degree, I was a part-time tutor (3 years) at university and assisted more than 15 students in courses including English. Results always came a grade or two higher than expected.

Also, Sera was so prepared for the lesson along with reading materials to start with. The first meeting was very good as Ali and Sera talked a lot about his interests and what Ali likes to do, then Sera have explained to Ali the different types of speech such as nouns, adjectives and verbs.
