Experienced and qualified TEFL teacher. I like to use a person centred approach, it's all about you!
italki teacher since Feb 15, 2022
I have worked in educational and community settings for over 20 years and I feel this makes up a huge part as to who I am. I enjoy meeting and getting to know new people, I am a great listener and always ready to help those in need. I get a lot of satisfaction from seeing other people thrive and if I can help them reach their goals, I will be there to assist.
When I'm not working, I love to travel, hike, try new foods, cook and read, I'm currently reading KAFKA on the SHORE. I was born and bred in London, however the past few years were spent living and working in China. I got to do all the things I love whilst there; teaching, eating delicious food, meeting new people and travelling.
Me as a Teacher
I started my career in community development and youth work, alongside education, which provided me with a different outlook and perspective with regards to education. I personally feel that a student will learn more effectively if they feel that they are part of the planning and decision making process. I am normally a fun and lively teacher and I use a lot of games and activities, although I am able to adapt to meet different needs. An adult student whom I teach Business English prefers a lecture style of teaching, so I adapted my lessons to meet his needs.
My lessons & teaching style
I like to take a person centred approach, my lessons are planned around the individual learners needs and wants, rather than mine as the teacher. I try to make all lessons fun and engaging, especially when online as I understand it can be difficult for students to concentrate on a boring screen for a long period of time. I am flexible and willing to change in order to meet students needs.
