Hello! I'm Nate. I`ve been teaching English for 6 years. I have experience working with youth, children and adults. I hope to transfer my knowledge to my students and to see them happy as well with the results of our work. I pay special attention to speaking and correct pronunciation, thus helping to overcome the language barrier. I want to see my students freely conversing in English on a wide variety of topics. I believe in creating a great report between learner and teacher to ensure a safe and fun educational environment. Please, also add me on LINE - my ID Teacher_Nate, it is much easier to chat in there! I am looking for such a student. 1. You are not good in conversation. 2. You want to pronounce beautifully like a native speaker. Usually, I spend 20 percent of the time for teaching. 80 percent of the time I allow my students to practice their language skills. Why? Because when students spend more time for practice, their language skills are more likely to improve. Spending time with practice language improving students memory, Grammar, and Vocabulary. Teaching English to me is all about share. I share my story and study tips to tell students that it is never too late to make English fluent. My short-term teaching purpose is to guide students to improve their English skills with effective tips and tools. Furthermore, I focus on increasing learners’ interests and fulfillment through my teaching to motivate them to study proactively. I am fulfilled when I see students’ progress and more than happy to see them become confident when they overcome their fear in English. And that is my long-term purpose for teaching English. Teaching Approach In order to help students learn English clearly and more effectively, I use different teaching approaches on different occasions and topics. I employ the Communicative Approach and Comprehension Approach in my teaching a lot because of my learning experience. When I was studying English in New York City, buildings, streets, people and everything are authentic materials to help me have a better understanding of English and learn faster. Most students do not have enough background knowledge of the target language and its culture. Therefore, I like to share American information and authentic materials to catch students’ attention. Moreover, many adult students are sleepy in the class because they come to class after work. Employing active activities and tools can ring more energy into the class. For beginner level, sometimes I use the Audio-lingual Approach. Many Taiwanese and Chinese students are shy, and they have a hard time speaking and pronouncing English. Asking them to repeat words, sentences, and dialogues can reinforce their speaking skills. I also use The Affective Humanistic Approach. As a teacher, I care about what my students have learned more than what I have taught. Therefore, I always observe my students feeling and reactions to adjust my teaching methods and content. Teaching Techniques Generally, I spend less than 1/3 time to teach students concepts. I dived the class into 3 parts: warm-up, main course, and reinforcement. I prefer students to practice right after learning a new concept. It helps both students and me to evaluate how much students comprehend about the new concept. I always share my learning journey and some mistakes I made a lot to lower students’ affective filter and use positive words to encourage them. From my teaching experience, as long as adult students reduce their fear, they can learn faster and become a happy learner. I like to inspire students rather than teach them. Many Taiwanese students lack critical thinking ability. Consequently, they become passive learners. I encourage students to think about their purpose of learning English to motivate them to study proactively. I usually share a story or funny experience related to the topic we’re going to talk to trigger students’ interests. I also invite students to share their opinions and ideas about the topic before we start it. I design lots of speaking practices in the class and give students opportunities to give presentations in front of the class. Although many students are nervous in the beginning, they improve a lot and present very well gradually. Through speaking and writing tasks, I can evaluate my students if they fully understand the concepts, grammar, and pronunciation. To my mind, the best motivation of my students is when they observe themselves how they language skills improve and how they can understand English speech in TV-series or movies, how they can speak the language and use their own language skills in everyday life, especially when they take tests in school. It's the best motivation for them.
