I use the communicative approach to language learning, which means that lessons are student centered and highly interactive with an emphasis on learning English in real life contexts. Activities and class discussion are based on real life situations and topics that the student will encounter outside the classroom in everyday life. Grammar is presented, learned and practiced in everyday real life contexts. Attempts to communicate are encouraged right from the outset.
I use effective, proven teaching techniques developed over years of classroom experience to assure that you make rapid improvement. Students like to work with me because I’m very patient, encouraging, and give them maximum speaking practice. I also put in extra effort to make your lessons fun and interesting by using a wide variety of teaching materials along with different learning activities and games.
