Native speaker English tutor (6+ years of experience) offering online English classes

Methodology

My teaching method is very dependent on each individual student. I like to first understand why exactly each student wants to learn English, and then structure my class so that we are practicing the relevant vocabulary for that purpose. I often like to start classes with the grammatical foundation for the day, and then spend class doing exercises practicing that grammatical concept, and having a conversation, within the context of the student's interests and experiences. I believe classes should be enjoyable, with an emphasis put on student expressing themselves.

Background

I have been a tutor for nine years, and specifically an English tutor for 6+ years. I have both had my own private tutoring business and worked for larger companies. Additionally, I have started elementary level English clubs whilst living in Senegal, Mexico and Nicaragua. I am a native English speaker but also speak Spanish, French and Pular (spoken in West Africa). I am professional, organized and enjoy dynamic, engaged classes. Learning should be fun :)

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $16/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $70
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $130

Details

Since the classes are online instead of in person, I have offered a discounted rate for all online classes. I hope that this reasonable rate will make English lessons accessible to students. I believe that all people who truly have an interest in learning English should have the opportunity to, so am sometimes flexible with rates if finances make it difficult for a student to pay.
