italki teacher since Apr 15, 2022
I'm a retired teacher, mother and grandmother who is very physically and socially active. It's important to me to be engaged with people. I have worked in an immigration setting in Western Canada, and because of that, I enjoy being engaged with people from all over the world. I would like to continue my connection with those learning English, as I to, am a language learner. I am most prepared to teach adults. I understand the desire to accomplish the skill of another language, and in my case it's Italian.
Me as a Teacher
As a teacher, it's important to connect with learners. In this case, we know the objective is to use English, so I must engage with the learner at his or her level. The best thing for connecting with each other is to find out the interests of the learner. I'm able to help guide the learning process with friendly and inquiring conversation. My past teaching experience will be helpful in suggesting tools, and activities for the adult learner.
My lessons & teaching style
As a Community Tudor, I would follow what I stated in 'Me as a Teacher'. My conversations will be guided by the learner. I have a very good grasp of most career, and/or hobbies, and can bring forth topics and a suitable level of language to encourage the learner to engage easily with me. It often surprises me, and the learner, how much they can speak in English about things that really interest them. Leading questions, and natural discourse are great tools to encourage success in conversation.
