About Daniel ColmanOne-to-one tutoring:
I offer structured lessons tailored to the needs and ability of the student. These lessons are based around either an article or video clip.
One-to-one tutoring lessons are designed to teach new vocabulary, practice grammar, read/listen for meaning and specific information as well as encourage discussion and debate as the student actively uses the new language.
Each lesson starts with a recap of any new language from previous lessons and then we work through the materials that I send the student before the lesson.
Current affairs discussion:
These are unstructured lessons and the focus is on the student to guide the discussion as much as I do. I suggest that this lesson is suitable only for those with an upper-intermediate level of English or higher.
Before the lesson I send the student a couple of topical stories from the news with some suggestions for our discussion. During the lesson we talk though the various issues, viewpoints and dilemmas as well as focusing on any new vocabulary or phrases.
I have been lucky enough to teach online for 3 years. The internet is a great tool for language learning and I enjoy seeing my students become more confident. I look forward to speaking with you!
