A polite note:
As you may imagine, being a full-time teacher and working extra hours in the evenings as a private tutor, I have a heavy workload and would therefore like to point out that as a matter of courtesy it is expected that students arrive to lessons on time and give at least 24 hours notice of a lesson cancellation where possible. As I am sure you can appreciate, I spend a considerable amount of time planning and preparing lessons outside of paid time, therefore lessons cancelled in short notice will still be charged.
Please also note that in order to be able to plan and prepare lessons, I need to know at least 24 hours in advance when you would like to book a lesson - requesting a lesson on the day you expect one proves very difficult to deliver.
Thank you for your understanding.
Approach to tutoring:
I am very flexible in my approach to tutoring. I am open to any suggestions or preferred ways of learning that my students wish to put forward and I am focused on planning the lessons to meet each of my student's needs and preferences.
I take a very practical and interactive approach to teaching languages, using various resources such as videos and other listening materials, PowerPoints and appropriate written materials and activities. I will pay equal attention to writing, reading, speaking and listening as these are all important components in learning a language.
My hope is for students to be open-minded towards their learning as well as being dedicated. Learning a foreign language takes an immense amount of patience, enthusiasm and persistent hard work and perseverance.
