My first goal with a new student is to locate their particular problem. Then I build a lesson(s) that will give the student the confidence to see the problem and overcome it. My aim is to encourage the student to become a more autonomous learner.
I have taught English on 3 continents. I provide short, compact lessons to assist students overcome their small problems. I encourage each student to become an active learner. I have had experience with students from many different countries and at many different levels of ability.
As I prefer to do lessons by webcam, there will not be any extra charge. Should the student require me to travel, a small stipend will be added to cover travel costs.
