One Hour Trial Lesson
Maybe I'm the right teacher for you. Maybe I'm not.
Find out in a one hour lesson without having to spend so much.
😊Let's Improve 😊 See the lesson structure underneath*
My lessons utilize the Dogme approach which features conversations based on material that you select. The British Council's Teaching English website explains this approach, "...if learners are not interested they will not learn and therefore all material should be generated by the learners. Learners come to class discussing something... The teacher encourages and facilitates discussion and provides answers to questions about grammar and vocabulary as they arise."
✔️An Informative Speech
Give a speech about material you have selected to read in advance for the lesson (if you have not read selected material you will have time to find material and read it during the lesson). ❌I will not select the material for you❌ What you select will depend on your individualized learning goals, however, for general fluency you should explore different topics for each lesson, such as history, science, culture, technology, and business.
✔️Vocabulary Check & Development
Examine vocabulary words from the material. Morphology is also studied in order to help you remember the words. You will be asked to improvise sentences and questions with the vocabulary words.
✔️Pronunciation Check & Correction
Read the material out loud for pronunciation improvement. Phonetic symbols are used in order to help you remember how to pronounce words.
✔️Writing, Grammar & Syntax Check
Write a paragraph about the material. Writing is one of the best ways to visualize errors in grammar and syntax(word order and punctuation).
We will review what needed to be practiced during the lesson.
I teach Intermediate to Upper Advanced English speakers only. If you can understand most of the English you hear about everyday topics and have been able to have conversations before with English speakers you should be able to take my lessons and benefit from them.
I have experience with CELPIP (Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program), DET (Duolingo English Test), and IELTS exam preparation.
I will also review anything you have written.
I live near Cocoa Beach, just east of Orlando, Florida, and I like travelling, playing basketball, going to Disney with my family and trying to be a good father figure.
I'm most experienced in teaching students who are native Chinese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Italian speakers.
In addition to having taught 2000 one-on-one lessons online, I also have multiple accredited teaching certifications totaling 250 hours of professional education. See my resume by scrolling down on your screen.
