I start by assessing the student’s level, and gradually gauging the areas they're weakest in before
selecting the most suitable route of teaching. (e.g. Are they visual learners? Will they write better with
or without technical knowledge? How conversational should our lessons be?)
Generally, our lessons alternate between the main language components, namely Reading, Writing,
Speaking, Listening and Grammar. I detect their linguistic idiosyncrasies in order to determine which
item is most beneficial for them in terms of personal command of the language, or test preparation. For
example, a foreign student who speaks by constantly misusing articles and determiners (i.e. Teacher, I
go to the Gurney Plaza on Saturday) will be trained in that particular area. Whereas my older, more
advanced students would be trained to understand the nuance of language and the skill of synthesising
information. Lastly, our lessons are conducted with the usage of Google Classroom, slides, worksheets, notes, workbooks and audio
I am a former international school teacher and writer with a major in English language. I have spent 9 years of my life teaching, and wrote my first book in 2019. English is my first language, followed by Cantonese, Malay and Mandarin. I am also literate in Hangul (Korean characters).
