italki teacher since Apr 21, 2022
Hello everyone! My name is Clairete and I am a native New Yorker! I currently teach English at the middle school, high school and post high school levels in France. Thus, I welcome students at any level! During university, I studied Biology and Public Health alongside sociology, music and endocrinology courses. A bit more about me, I enjoy remaining active whether at the gym or in nature and food is my love language. As a fellow language learner, I value the conversations I have with others, of all ages and from all walks of life, because there is always something new to discover. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to share the English language with you—hope to see you soon!
Me as a Teacher
I am a compassionate, patient, and friendly teacher who strives to develop an open and comfortable relationship with all my students. Our main goal is to enjoy the learning process while remaining confident, and one of the main ways we will do so is by being flexible. As a teacher, I will adapt our lessons to your interests, goals, and academic/professional requirements. Most importantly, however, even on those “annoying” days, my aim will be to make you feel empowered through your English-speaking abilities!
My lessons & teaching style
I have an informal teaching style that is tailored to each student’s level and provide honest feedback as we progress. I place an emphasis on (professional and conversational) dialogue while also making use of my computer for music clips, reading passages, etc. By utilising a variety of exercises, I aim to keep our lessons engaging and current. All students are also encouraged to express their topics of interest! My teaching style also involves role-playing where we develop different scenarios to help expand on the students' ability to express themselves. Depending on the level, I will also introduce idioms and familiar phrases (i.e., slang) which I believe are beneficial to learning.
