My teaching method is practice. I scored 27/30 in the TOEFL Speaking Section because I practise speaking English whenever I had a chance to with just about anyone. Therefore, I plan to base my lesson on different activities in which learners can speak English to me and others as much as they can.
I am a PGCE teacher trainee in Secondary Maths. I am teaching Year 10's (10 pupils) and Year 8's (20 pupils) Maths lessons at a state-funded secondary school in London. I am also tutoring one A-Level student. I have not taught English before but I would like to venture out and develop my skills in teaching English.
Tuition rates are subject to travel distance (set according to Transport for London rates).
