I am Steve, from central England. I have a strong humanities background, having studied history, and later for a Masters in English Language Teaching. I have been teaching for over six years. I now tutor on Skype. In 2010, I began to study for a Masters in English Language Teaching. The knowledge I gained from this course has certainly helped me to make students more fluent in a shorter space of time. As for my beliefs as a language teacher, it is important, I feel, to personalise language and phrases because too many language learners learn words and collocations without any contextual input. It is much more rewarding to learn words and collocations in sentences which are true, about you and your life or about someone you know. You can then reproduce them later in conversation. I will explain the language learning techniques which have helped me to learn Polish and Serbian. In addition to general English lessons, I am able to help students with English for Academic Purposes and fine-tuning essays. My lessons are always engaging and tailored to the students' needs and interests. I always send a lesson review after each lesson with new vocabulary, grammar points and pronunciation issues. See you all soon.
