Teaching
 style

I love teaching and seeing my students progress quickly, and above all enjoy having a good laugh while we're at it!

 

I tailor my lessons to the student's needs, paying particular attention to any difficulties they may encounter with  pronunciation, intonation, spelling, syntax, grammar, vocabulary acquisition, and the second degree nuances of the language.
 

I am all for engaging the senses and the different forms of intelligence by making use of games, songs, pop music, videos, pictures, picture-drawing, literature, story-writing, figures of language, jokes, riddles, sketches, plays, role-play, movement, city walks, museum visits, oral presentations, projects, translation, internet-searches, quizzes, treasure hunts, maps, etc.
