English as a second or foreign language
I am a fully qualified teacher. I taught for 3 years professionally in England, working with special eduactional needs, (physical, mental, emotional and specific learning needs) additionally I have taught history and drama.
Since 2003, I have been working in Peru as an English teacher, I have worked with students as young as 2, up to the mature adult learner (the oldest was about 60 years old and learning English so that they could travel to the US to visit family).
I have taught in schools, univeristy and language institutes, and I have taught beginner to advanced level students.
I have 9 GSCE's, 4 A-levels, BA (Hons) Humanities, and a PGCE quailifications all from England. I have also studied various short course, in person, distance and on-line.
I use Wikis to help share teaching material with students, and any student who takes classes with me will gain access to the material on my Wiki.
Experience: 15 years
I teach English to students who wish to learn the language. Although I am a native British teacher, I have been teaching American English for the last 10 years. However, when teaching I don't really teach either British or American English. I teach grammar, vocabulary, writing and speaking. I also have exercises to help students improve their listening and reading skills.
My methodos include practical activities that help students use the language that they have learnt, as well as more structured activities to help them learn and drill forms needed to ensure fluidity and accuracy.
I adjust my style of teaching depending on the individual student needs, age, interest and learning style are some of the things that I consider when planning on teaching students.
