italki teacher since Dec 3, 2021
My name is Eimear, I am 27 years old and from Belfast in Northern Ireland. I am a native English speaker with a high level of Spanish. I am an outgoing, people person. I love socializing and interacting with others. I love meeting new people and learning about new cultures. I have lived in many different countries. I moved back from Vancouver, Canada this year and am now living in Spain. I love reading, swimming, hiking, snowboarding and exploring new places. I am a huge foodie, I love all things to do with food - cooking it, eating it, thinking of new recipes and I often find myself scrolling social media watching videos of other people making food.
Me as a Teacher
As a teacher, I want my students to guide the lessons. I want to know what their preferred learning or teaching styles are and I adapt to suit their needs. I want our lessons to be interactive and engaging and for my students to be doing the majority of the speaking. I believe a lesson that is fun and interesting will encourage students to want to learn more and use the language more so I always aim for fun and interesting topics to help keep my students focused.
My lessons & teaching style
I think speaking is the most effective and important way to learn a language so I like to keep my lessons predominantly speaking based. Natural conversation enables you to engage the student with topics they are interested in and will want to speak about. I try to encourage fluency rather than accuracy so avoid butting in with corrections. I keep notes and provide feedback to my students towards the end of the lesson or in follow up lessons. I prefer a more relaxed and informal lesson style, however, I can adapt my lessons easily to ensure my teaching style is beneficial to the learner.
