italki teacher since Oct 15, 2021
My name is James and I am from England. I was born in 1974 in a city called Norwich. Since I was young I always enjoyed music and I play the piano and flute. I studied music for my undergraduate degree and after I lived in Italy for nearly a year to enjoy looking the art, food and culture. I arrived in Asia in 1997 and have been here ever since. I have been lucky to travel all around Asia and meet many wonderful people. I still enjoy traveling and never stop learning from the people I meet. I also enjoy swimming and hiking and going to the gym.
Me as a Teacher
I have taught all types of students in all different situations and levels. I am very flexible in how I teach and I always aim to provide personalized lessons to meet the individual needs of my students. I always ask appropriate questions and show genuine interest so I can understand my students and I always have time to listen. I want my students to feel that I am interested in them personally and this helps to provide them with a positive motivation boost.
My lessons & teaching style
After getting to know each student personally, I tailor my lessons and teaching style to suit their individual needs. I use a wide variety of media and online resources so that students can continue learning between classes and keep highly motivated. I always find something positive in each student so that I can encourage and motivate them to continue learning even when they may start to doubt themselves.
