Experienced Community Tutor with 2 Years of Teaching Experience at a Language Academy
italki teacher since Apr 16, 2022
My name is James and I'm excited to hopefully have the opportunity to share my knowledge of English with you all. I have a passion for teaching English and being able to help others understand this important language, especially in a globalized world today where English has become a necessity. I would describe myself as a very curious and open person and I love to have conversations with other people and get to know them! I am a Canadian citizen, I grew up and went to school (as well as University) here, and I hope to be able to show some of that Canadian hospitality in my lessons.
Me as a Teacher
As a teacher, I am very flexible and I have had experience in the fields of conversational tutoring with young students at a language academy before. I am well aware of the different people that I meet that want to learn how to communicate through English and I love to learn about other people and their cultures as well! I am TEFL certified and I've had 2 years of teaching experience.
My lessons & teaching style
I would say that my teaching style is very lenient and comfortable. I will usually conduct lessons through conversational means such as pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar tips. I want to repeat here that I am a Community Teacher with two years of experience as an English tutor, however, I am not a licensed professional. I like to create a comfortable atmosphere with the students to ease any shyness or awkwardness so that the student feels like they can openly speak with confidence!

James made me feel comfortable speaking English. He is very patient too, as I take time for expressing myself. He selected an article that was a good foundation for a deep oral conversation. I appreciate the fact that his lexicon is varied when he speaks.
