About the lesson
Summary of my approach to teaching:
- I identify wants and needs of the student(s). Do they need vocabulary, grammar, reading skills, writing skills, conversational English, all of the above or something else?
- I build lesson plans around those needs. I tailor the lessons to the student(s). I assess student progress to make sure we are going in the right direction. I make changes as needed.
- I provide CONSTRUCTIVE feedback to the student(s). I never criticize or demean the student(s). All interactions must be positive in nature. As a second language learner myself, I know that learning a new language is not always easy. I respect my students and want them to succeed.
- I let the student(s) have a chance to tell me if I am meeting their wants and needs. I adjust lessons and approach if needed to make the best chance for success.
- English Vocabulary
- English listening
- All Levels
I love teaching. My command of the English language is great enough that I have progressed to the highest level of education - a doctorate degree. I have given both professional and academic presentations, briefings and lectures in English. I am proficient in Word, PowerPoint and other software. I am a published academic. However, while all of this is good, it is not satisfying if I cannot share my knowledge and experience with others. Since I have traveled a lot and my wife and family are from another country, I have a particular interest in helping people whose first language is not English. Empowering non-native English speakers is a source of happiness for me.
