Native English speaker with the experience in tutoring English with passion.
italki teacher since Dec 4, 2021
Bonjour. My name is Azalea Rose and I am a 23 year old South African and a native speaker of the English language. I have made a habit out of reading books and interpreting them to enhance my knowledge and passion of the language. I am an introvert and some of my hobbies include, as mentioned above, reading alongside cooking, eating, cleaning, travelling, learning new skills, exercising and sometimes participating in adventurous activities with friends and family. I value respect and kindness and I believe the greatest achievement in life is true happiness. I am always smiling so my students should be sure that I will be welcoming them with a big smile in every lesson.
Me as a Teacher
During my high school years, I took on a successful attempt in taking Advanced Program English as an extra subject, which helped me improve the way that I navigate around the language, be it in verbal communication or in written communication. I trust my ability to focus on the work at hand and produce notable results for my students' benefit in learning. I am professionally accommodative of the preference of my learners as I am aware of how uncomfortable learning something new can be so I will strive to make the experience for my learners more comfortable so as to build their confidence in learning English.
My lessons & teaching style
I practice a hybrid and conversational teaching style. A hybrid teaching style means that my main objective is to address my learners in ways that they each understand, so as to accommodate each of their learning styles. The hybrid teaching style incorporates, but not limited to, direct instruction, activity learning and demonstrations. In my lessons, I will make sure to teach in a way that suits the comfort of my learners but the basis of my lessons include video files, images, charts and flashcards.
