Politics Graduate and English Tutor offering conservational and vocabulary English lessons online or in person.

Methodology

For conversational classes, I will usually structure them so that my student speaks as long as possible. I will have a topic (something that interests them) which I will assign to the student to research and they will come to the lesson and talk about that topic. I offer debates and dialogues to allow the students to think on their feet. Debates are fun as it allows the student to improve and learn new vocabulary.
