    Teaching Approach

    I want to make English learning interesting and fun, so I have several tricks and strategies to use in order to get you thinking and talking. Mysteries with clues, interesting books or texts, movie-based worksheets, and music-based pronunciation are all used by me in the classroom.
    However, your own interests and needs are the most important thing; I will make sure our lessons fit whatever you need from me.

    Please message me and I'll be pleased to work with you!

    Program Description

    I am a Ph.D. student with nine years experience as an English teacher.

    I offer conversation- based lessons, and I also offer help with writing (paragraphs, reports, etc.).

    My approach focuses on pronunciation , reading comprehension , and discussion.

    A typical lesson begins with a mystery story which we read together, complete with questions and clues I will ask you.
    This is followed by a movie-based grammar worksheet (we will view a scene from a movie, have a grammar lesson, and answer comprehension questions about the movie).
    Afte r that, we may work on pronunciation either with a book or a song.
    Finall y, we will read out loud together. I have many interesting short readings, but we may also read a book (one chapter per lesson). If you have a book in mind, that's perfect.

    T o conclude, I would like to say that I am happy to work with you on most any subject, so long as reading, writing, or listening is involved. I will use my experience to help you make a good impression the next time you have to impress.

    T hank you!
