italki teacher since Oct 20, 2021
I am a young fun-filled student who is always eager to learn and expand on my knowledge by interacting with people from different walks of life that is where my love for languages, cultures, and travel comes in. I am currently pursuing a career in Education doing a Postgraduate Diploma (to teach English and Life Orientation) I have recently completed my practicals and awaiting to write my final exams. I am a patient, understanding, and highly proficient teacher I care more about knowledge retention than I do about perfecting a test based on temporary knowledge retention.
Me as a Teacher
Whenever I begin my lessons I prefer introducing a topic that is of interest to whomever that is in my class (optionally the student can come up with the topic as language is best learned when used in conversation as you get to express yourself and find words along with their synonyms and antonyms when conversing about topics that interest you). I do also give aiding materials such as definitions and examples of language structure and convention whenever necessary especially when advancing from beginner level to a more advanced level. I will customise exercises for each student and be sure to make use of multiple literary devices so as to promote exposure to the languages that I teach.
My lessons & teaching style
In my lessons, I will incorporate multiple forms of materials such as PDF documents that I have sourced and find helpful in learning a language, use PowerPoint presentations for those who are visual learners (I will include images & audio files), and I will incorporate some educational videos that have exercises to do and we will work through them together. However, the manner in which the lesson goes is largely dependent on the student even if we do not use any materials and we have a conversation throughout the lesson the main aim is to adapt to the student and their needs. As long as the lesson is fruitful and the student(s) can take away some knowledge from it that is all that matters.
