My Approach to Private Tuition
Every student has a different way of learning, this can be through talking, reading, listening or practicing. It is crucial to find out which studying method is the right one for a student. I will find out with which method(s) the student can work best with. A one-to-one tuition is a great way to work this out and then use them to achieve the students’ goals. I will then push you as much as possible towards them. I have high expectations on my students and their progress but I understand that some need longer than others and we will find the best way to get you to accomplish your goals, always keeping in mind that it is still important to enjoy studying the respective subject.
I will use various ways of teaching, in languages for example I will use a balance between grammar, listening and reading so that the student does not get bored.
As I have graduated not that long ago, I know the importance of easy examples and explanations and memory hooks for studying and I will use them as much as possible.
My video Introduction
I became fluent in Spanish within two years, almost exclusively through self-studying and practicing.
