Certified TEFL teacher with a passion for teaching
italki teacher since Jan 12, 2022
My name is Sunesis Simon. My first name is Greek which means "understanding". This definitely describes who I am. I try my best to understand the people around me and the world I live in. I love to learn and try my best to see life from more than one perspective. Though at times it can make me indecisive, it also means that I always take my time before making a decision. I love to laugh, try new things, help others and spend time in nature.
Me as a Teacher
As a teacher, I am compassionate, dedicated and focused. I practice a student-centered teaching approach where students are encouraged to be creative, focused and persistent. My teaching philosophy in founded on principals such as kindness, respect for students, persistence and creativity.
My lessons & teaching style
My teaching style consists of a mixture of strategies such as conversations, role playing and visualization (the use of visual aids). These strategies are all used according to the student's needs and preferences. More so, I will use stories, videos and articles to increase student's exposure to English grammatical structures, vocabulary and culture. Where possible, students will have quizzes to see their level of improvement and which areas we need to work on more.
