I have been privately tutoring students of all ages and proficiency levels since I received my English certification in 2009. I have also taught students at the university level for five months this past spring semester. I am able to adapt to situations around me and have the utmost dedication to my profession. My strong desire to continue learning make me an asset to any student I tutor.
I begin an initial tutoring session by asking my students where their problem areas are when they try to utilize the English language. I also request some writing samples or have them take diagnostic tests to determine what we would need to work on the most. Correction techniques I would utilize include arriving at the mistake in conjunction with the student's recognition of the mistake. Leading students to recognize their own mistakes themselves is more effective to the way they remember the mistakes in the future. In turn, students retain the information more effectively when they recognize their mistakes themselves. Correcting and reinforcing the mistake by having students practice what they got incorrect will further help them remember the correction in the future.
I tailor all of my teaching methods to each student. Each case is different and the needs of each student must be approached using different teaching techniques. Each individual has different circumstances surrounding his or her specific case and general approaches to helping someone in the teaching sector cannot always be adapted to each and every case.
