I base my teaching on understanding, my methodology depends on each student and their specific needs. I am fully prepared to give English Literature lessons to middle school as well as to high school students. I also speak French and Arabic.
I offer tailored tutorial sessions which help to build self confidence. My patient and calm approach serves to ensure that students achieve the best results.
I've been passionate about English literature for as long as I can remember and achieved an A grade in my Junior Certificate [GCSE equivalent] and an A1 in my Leaving Certificate [A-Level Equivalent]. I moved to Belfast and graduated from Queen's in May 2017 with a degree in English and history.
I have taught a range of ages of student, from primary school up to adults. My teaching method is to tailor the classes to suit each individual's needs.
As a student, I am used to teaching a variety of levels, and I adapt my teaching to each student, as I do not believe that there is one universal method for all students. I spend time over the first session working out how my student learns and I adapt my method accordingly.
My teaching methods include sitting with my students to discuss the work we are looking at, I believe in literature discussing the work out loud allows you to understand it better.
I believe that everybody has creativity inside of them. Creativity is deeply connected to who we are and most importantly who we can be, our vocation and our strengths. It is the source of confidence which is vital to an open mind and the success of learning.
I like to focus on a student's individual needs - making sure that they understand where they are in terms of their academic progress, know their goals and how to reach them over a certain period of time.
I am a firm believer in practical application and discussion around texts - poetry, novels, films etc. - is the way to gain knowledge and understanding that YOU can apply to exams and essays. I am an understanding and patient tutor.
Depending on the students needs, my lessons with be tailored to focus on their aims and weaknesses. If they are preparing for any examination then I will focus on the mark scheme and where the student needs to improve in order to move up the grade boundaries.
English is all about interpretation and engagement. The text only half exists until we read it. As a result, I've found the best approach is to let the student explore a piece of literature, considering a particular passage or quote, and then let their natural interpretation guide what we think, discuss and discover.
I believe that pupils need to be fully engaged to learn to their maximum potential. With this in mind, I strive to make my lessons exciting, different and engaging, in order to challenge every learner and make them enjoy the content of what they're learning.
I am internal supply teacher who teaches every subject when asked to 11-16 year olds, although my specialist subjects English, Drama and History I could teach up to degree level. I have a laid-back approach when it comes to teaching, however I do strive for efficiency when doing so.
I enjoy teaching and have a passion for the subject. I believe students learn most when they feel confident and a good rapport and humour are key to achieving this. Most importantly I can tailor my lessons to the individual needs of each student and make each session productive, enjoyable and confidence building.
Offers a safe environment for learning, all workshops are highly practical, offering you the chance to be part of an interactive writing community. As well as detailed feedback on your assessed work, there will be opportunities to give and receive constructive criticism to work in progress through online workshops and discussions with fellow students.
I am lucky to teach all ages and levels, preparing students for exams and helping them reach their personal objectives. Each lesson is entirely based on the student : during our first class, we find out what our goals are and we design a way to reach them.
My teaching methodology, is learner centred learning finding a style and way that suits them. So if it means having a walk by a canal or up a hill to find out about the natural world for History or Geography or Science to being in a classroom researching information on the internet or from books.
I base my lessons on deep reading. This includes understanding the story from the characters' understanding of themselves and each other. Setting and voice and action are secondary to what happens inside a character's mind and the words that come from his/her mouth.
I like to make classes interactive and inclusiary. They will always be tailored around the students desired experiences and their own level of compitency. I fully believe in the Socratic method and so rather than deliver lectures I prefer to have a discussion on the subject which encourages greater understanding.
My main priority in teaching is to create an atmosphere where learning can happen. This means that I get to know you, what you struggle with and what you love, from this place we can start learning together. I bring a variety of materials to class: we watch film clips, photography/art, and any other materials that support the learning of the particular subject.
I am very adaptable in my teaching method, i find what best works for the student, rather than sticking to a set why. i have found that every student learns differently, whether they are Primary school level, secondary school or even college.
Every text has context and without context, it is not possible to understand a piece of literary work. In my method of teaching, I aim to make the subject as interesting for the student as my professors had made it for me.
I offer interactive, encouraging and friendly lessons for school and university students. Classes focus on key aspects of English language, grammar and literature. I am happy to answer your questions and offer easy exercises to review your learnings throughout the lesson.
I approach lessons on a one to one student basis, by informal assessment. I like to discover strong and weak points and work on both, and keep motivation strong working out what works best and personal interests. Lessons plans are individually tailored around achievements, interests and targets.
I have been reviewing class materials by discussing text, reviewing worksheets or other assignments. I provide feedback using positive reinforcement techniques to encourage, motivate or build confidence. I have developed some teaching materials, such as handouts and study materials myself.
My sessions will be based around what you need. We'll focus on some of the topics you're interested in - because without an interest in anything you're studying, how will you improve? - as well as the ones you need help with. If there's one thing I've learned through my time at school and in university, it's that there's never a shortage of ways of learning so we'll find a mix which works for you.
I believe teaching is all about engagement, and student involvement. I strive to provide you with the knowledge and tools to get and A+ on that assignment, but to solve problems on your own. Lessons will be be instructional, but based on a guided inquiry model. The first 5 - 10 mins will be dedicated to an explanation of the issues and struggles you have encountered with the assignment.
I will communicate with you and give you more practice on speaking and writing. I'm also friendly, so you can be comfortable with me and practice your English with me. you will be braver when you speak English with other people especially when you go to other countries.
I use the communicative method, rich storytelling and powerful associations. Students are motivated to reach their own conclusions, develop fresh ideas, use arguments to defend their theses in a relaxed atmosphere in order to achieve the best results. I'm open, friendly and easy to connect.
I will prepare lessons and essay questions for answer, and will be available to discuss the themes of various novels and short stories. I am particularly knowledgeable about YA fiction, horror, and contemporary literary fiction. I can also read the texts you need to study if necessary.
