My teaching method is very interactive whereby I encourage my students to speak more. A typical lesson plan begins with a group exercise which helps them to bond with their peers and come up with solutions to a simple problem. We then move on to a grammar lesson helping them build their grammar to construct sentences. I also add flavor to the class by discussing commonly spoken phrases or idioms in American English. The class ends with adding to their vocabulary list by learning new words in each class and their application. Resources used are audio visual clips, flash cards and various other everyday objects to create group exercises.
I am a pharmacy graduate with a post graduate degree in Business Administration and have been working in the education sector for the last 12 years.
I am passionate about teaching ESL To non-native English speakers and motivate them to feel confident about their conversational skills thereby helping them to come one step closer to their life goals.
