My teaching approach consists of an assessment through friendly conversation which is then analysed in order to identify areas causing difficulty.
I like to use images and fun apps to create a stimulating environment - especially with grammar! Students are encouraged to do some self correction and join in with conversation at all times - I will not be speaking at you for 45 minutes!
We will share resources and I will set a communicative task to be completed before the next lesson.
Communicative and friendly. I have a great understanding of a lot of cultures having travelled and taught in Europe, Asia and The Americas.
I like to find out about my students interests and discuss them. I am aware of students needs and will meet them in a practical and creative way.
