Cosa ti differenzia dai tuoi diretti concorrenti?
I believe strongly in teaching English as a mother tongue....so making the language 'live'...helping my students to use English in a natural way. Not like is done in many schools, studying English as merely an academic exercise, learning by heart lists of rules and repeating them like a parrot! I want my student to know WHY...WHEN...WHAT and HOW to use the things they learn....but more than that, to have and maintain a strong motivation for learning English, as this will keep them interested and determined to continue, even when it's difficult! And last, but by no means least, to ENJOY learning English...have FUN! IF YOU LAUGH, YOU LEARN!
Cosa ti piace del tuo lavoro?
I am a 'people person'....I enjoy working with people, so teaching offers this opportunity every day...and to all sorts of people, all ages, backgrounds and personalities!!!! Plus, I LOVE teaching my language...I love English...both in literature and in speaking! Teaching also allows me to transmit something that is truly useful...practical and lasting...and can be built on continually, YOU NEVER STOP LEARNING!
Quali domande ti fanno di solito i clienti e come rispondi?
Often students ask me how long it will take them to learn English...or what is the best way??? Well....the answer is more or less the same for each question...Every student is unique...so what works for one, won't necessarily work for another! Each student has their 'key'...and as a teacher I have to do my best to find it! And, as regards the time needed...THAT depends on the effort put in by the student to 'internalise' and study the language! At least 50% of the work belongs to the student!!!
Hai qualche informazione particolare che vuoi condividere sul tuo lavoro?
Teaching and learning are fwo skills that work together and produce results...ALWAYS!
Hai qualche esperienza che ti piacerebbe condividere?
I have taught students as young as 2 years old, and they are now perfectly bi-lingual....this has reinforced to me the need to teach English as a mother- tongue, as naturally as possible...and as early as possible!!!
