Tutor of Maths, Numeracy & ESOL.
I’ve been teaching for 15 years. I teach people across a range of different backgrounds, nationalities and age groups, including young learners. I bring a lot of variety to the classroom, as well as traditional types of exercise, to encourage students’ interest and independent learning. In both Maths and English classes, I like to see students working together in small groups, collaboratively and communicatively.
IT is a big part of this. I include regular computer work in class, and I make good use of SmartBoards and VLEs such as Scribblar, Blackboard Collaborate, and this WordPress blog. It’s a good way to encourage students to use on-line educational materials outside class.
