My classes are conversational, and we will practice grammar, vocabulary, listening, and reading in practical contexts and situations. As a teacher, I am demanding but also very patient and kind. I want my students to succeed and to have fun. I enjoy getting to know my students and their interests and hobbies whilst tailoring my classes to meet their needs. I like to create a supportive classroom atmosphere where students can feel comfortable communicating in English, while at the same time providing corrections and feedback for students at all times. I enjoy using creative activities such as games, role-plays, and discussions to make my classes more interactive and fun. We will also use videos, podcasts, articles, and exercises from the internet as resources in our classes.
