Speaking and Writing Mentor

Introduction

SpeaksEnglish

Speaking and writing mentor, an ESL tutor for 5 years and counting. As a teacher, it is my duty to encourage and motivate you to do well and work hard to achieve your learning goals. I also want to make sure that you are consistently improving. I believe that each student has different strengths and weaknesses and I am willing to guide and help you in learning the language, so let’s work and study together. I would love to meet you in class. See yah! # 1: Actual Conversations Initially, I will ask what lesson or topics you prefer to study. It's important for me to assess your level first. Examples for conversation topics – technology, sports, careers, culture, travel, health, cooking, politics, literature, the entertainment industry, the stock market, global warming, etc, the list goes on. Maybe you want to focus on GRAMMAR, TOEIC/TOEFL/IELTS speaking topics or some job-related topics I will try my best to help you. Let's work together! #2: Less Interruption – Helpful Corrections As your teacher, I will not interrupt you for each mistake, constant corrections will not help you learn English. It is impossible for you to learn from every correction and you might lose your confidence. So instead, I will wait after we finish one topic or conversation and point out the areas you should improve (i.e. sounds you have trouble pronouncing, grammar mistakes, better vocabulary). This approach will maximize the time you practice speaking and also give you more chances to ask questions. Excited to meet you! See yah! I always try to assess first which level you belong, from there we can work together and improve the areas that you feel is your weakness. So obviously, Grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, accent, tenses and so on are all important aspects to consider. And I believe I can help you improve more on that. Let's talk about it! Other terms and conditions will be discussed in class. See you!
