Learning must be fun! As a teacher you must make learning fun and enjoyable, I believe in creating a easy, fun and happy environment, but also controlled and structured learning at the same time. In life we do things that are fun, so I make learning fun.
My teaching method focusses on the topics that students feel they are struggling with. I ask students to bring a few examples of problems they are having difficulty understanding and use these for the basis of each lesson, helping them to work through more examples and gain confidence.
My teaching methods is : listen,write,learn. I have teached italian grammar for kids (10-15 years). I am using cd s with music as well.
The methodology depends very much on the pupil him/herself. What I usually do is try to improve on what they learn in school since the reason why they need tuition is because they either, do not understand and therefore need one-to-one teaching in order to improve, or, because they wish to get a higher grade.
I HAVE BEEN TUTORING NATIONAL FIVE & HIGHER STUDENTS IN ENGLISH FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW WITH QUITE A BIT OF SUCCESS. I ALSO TEACH ITALIAN, PRINCIPALLY TO ADULTS. IN ADDITION, I TEACH SPANISH WHEN CALLED UPON TO DO SO.
