Subject

English

Intensive English

I have trained students and evaluated their understanding of scientific and academic topics, such as Environmental Issues, New Technologies that offer Greater Convenience, Interview Readiness, Essay Writing, and Debate Preparation. Sample Topics: 1. The UN has declared that the world is fast approaching the precipice of a global climate catastrophe. Can we recover from it? What measures can we take to achieve climate goals? 2. The political situation in many countries is fast becoming extremist or right-wing. Is this acceptable? If so, why? If not, how do we bring about a moderate change in mindsets? 3. Interview Readiness: Why should we hire you as a candidate? What skills do you bring to the table? Expound on a problem that you have helped solve, or been the key to resolving in your career.

Business English

My training experience includes providing focused Business English training for corporate employees, professionals, and businessmen. Topics: 1. Effective Communication Systems 2. Modern Technologies in Communication 3. Neutral communication in corporate environments

Conversational English

We can talk about a myriad range of topics from modern lifestyle, everyday concerns, country and global issues, to politics. Share your experiences of travelling to other countries and meeting new people. Let's exchange cultures and become better people for it.

Reading and writing English

Understanding English movies

Utilising newspaper articles and topic-focused discussions, we practise using English to understand the complex written word and to convey our thoughts either professionally and/or academically.

English lifestyle and culture

I love science fiction, fantasy, and spiritual movies. Discuss specific scenes or entire movies and characters with me. Let's understand story-telling better.

About Tutor

Having grown up in Saudi Arabia for eleven years, I am one of those Indians who have been fortunate to be exposed to Western Culture and expansive, global ideas since childhood. I grew up with and around English, playing video games since the introduction of 386 and 486DX personal computers, reading science fiction and fantasy stories, and attending the Indian International School, where I learnt everything with an English medium in an English environment.

I am a professional English language trainer, who has conducted training seminars, corporate workshops, and one-on-one training sessions with professionals, students, hobbyists, and English enthusiasts the world-over. I have trained Indians, Japanese, Taiwanese, South Koreans, Thai, Russians, Brazilians, and even Japanese-Americans in the English language. I have been a Publisher and an Editor, helping a publishing house release over one hundred e-books from the manuscript to the final release publication.

I am a global citizen and most importantly, a good listener. Speak to me and let's share our interest in utilising English. Let's become globally enabled together.

Teaching Approach

The core component of my teaching style is Listening to the Student. I believe this is one of the most important criteria that a contemporary teacher must possess. My sessions provide the student with a healthy majority of speaking time and I have become proficient at asking questions both on-topic and tangential.

The second component of my pedagogy is to encourage student participation via reading and listening exercises. The student must feel that he or she is receiving a hands-on approach to the English language, or any other subject concerned.

In the short duration that an online session provides, it is important to facilitate the student's active use of the language, rather than lecture him or her for half an hour.

Lastly, I employ topics that are contemporary, ranging from modern politics and scientific discoveries to medical technology, modern-day adventures, and life-lessons. My fourteen years of cumulative experience have shown me many teaching approaches and my style has evolved to be functional and fruitful to my trainees.
