Information About Oli - Mayfield teacher - (14 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Oli:
I am Mexican with both Italian and Mexican nationalities. I have travelled and lived around the world, from Mexico to New York and Boston to Spain, France, the UK and Italy to Kenya and Uganda. I enjoy different cultures because they have enriched my life with exciting experiences. I can offer a first taster lesson free of charge, so learners can get to know me and my teaching method, I know you will be back!
I started teaching English in Mexico both as a freelancer and in a language school. I then moved to Italy and continued as a freelancer, teaching English and Italian to French students living in Rome and attending the Lycée Français Chateaubriand. I moved to England in December 2009 and have been teaching Spanish, French and Italian at home or at students' houses.
Usually the first lesson is to get to know the learner and his/her level, interests and to know what the learner wishes from the course.
I became a CELTA certified English teacher in Rome and I really loved this approach. While you stress the four skills: listening, talking, reading and writing, you do it in a very comfortable way and students hardly perceive they are really learning, even Grammar! It's a fun way to teach/learn.
My aim is for the student to learn without having to learn tedious Grammar or Spelling rules, by listening to CD's as many times as the student wants until he/she gets the gist; reading short paragraphs and then answering questions related to the CD's and the texts. I also use games intended to make the student speak and reflect about the subject of the game.
