I use Power-points to teach any new vocabulary or grammar - this keeps the lessons fun and interesting!
I use worksheets with exercises on for my students to complete and practice the new content that they have learnt.
I set up role-play oral conversations to practice both their listening and speaking skills. I will use reading comprehensions to practice their reading, and then I set essay questions/paragraphs to practice writing skills.
I am a student at Durham University, however, I have been tutoring for the last five years. I am a self-employed tutor as well as having worked for other companies.
I have tutored ages ranging from five years old to age seventeen.
