LESSONS THAT ARE INTERESTING AND TOPICAL
I like to make my lessons topical, interesting and relevant to students needs. A typical 11-week course will look something like this, with lessons focusing on conversation skills, vocabulary, pronunciation, and some grammar
Topics covered might include: 1) Health, food and cooking; 2) Shopping; likes and dislikes; 3) Travel, customs; 4) Cities, places, your community; 5) People and friends; appearance; 6) House and home; 7) Money and business; jobs and work. 8) Sports; hobbies and film 9) Entertainment and leisure; eating out. 10) News; politics, social issues and crime.
I have experience of teaching one-to-one sessions, in person and via the internet.
Private tuition gives you an unrivalled opportunity to improve your English. I’ll assess your English language skills, to establish what things you need to work on. Some students have a good knowledge of grammar but poor pronunciation. All students are different, with different requirements.
And all students have different aims. Maybe you want to pass your TRINITY exams, maybe you want to improve your pronunciation and vocabulary; perhaps you need to learn terms which you’ll use in your line of business. Whatever your requirements are, I’ll take those into account when I prepare your lessons.
Whilst I worked in Minsk, I gave private tuition to the director of one of Belarus’s leading retail companies
I’ve also given online tuition to a lady from Thailand who wanted to pass the IELTS A1 Life Skills exam.
