TEACHING METHODS

Firstly, I do not like textbooks. I teach students through meaningful exposure to authentic/real English language materials (e.g. academic journal articles, TED talks, academic podcasts). Students are engaged in authentic tasks (e.g.  learn how to write a short research project, how to critically evaluate a journal articles or prepare an academic presentation. Students often discuss with me materials they have read, listened or watched before the lesson. My lessons are challenging, interesting and always linked to the subject students are interested in. Secondly, I focus on developing students’ learning autonomy.  Students don’t need a teacher to learn the language. Students need a good tutor who can guide them, inspire, challenge and provide effective feedback.

  • I know without a shadow of a doubt I wouldn’t have graduated from the University of Manchester if not for Bernard’s help. Bernard simply put me on the track to success.
