English lessons for children

I have been teaching young learner online for over 5 years and i use a combination of teacher-centered and interactive class to help them appreciate and practice the information.

English for beginners

I mainly use visual cues and phonetic to build basic vocabulary.

Conversational English

I use the interactive approach, my job is to ask the questions and allow the student to express himself, so I can note and make needed corrections.

Teaching Approach

For a successful classroom experience, I use several techniques including:
Teacher-centered where I help my students to see that they can trust the information I am presenting to them, allowing them to build confidence in the material, while I have them contribute to the lesson material via examples or experiences. Personally, this gives relatable practical cases they can connect to the lesson. When taking this approach my class becomes more interactive permitting the learner to express themselves especially since English is a language that requires practice.

Further, I use the collaborative and indirect approach, simply put the approach chosen often depend on the learning style of my students.
