關於我

You: Hey Gary! What kind of lessons do you teach? What should I expect?

Me: First, thanks for messaging me! I'm glad you asked, in addition to entirely conversational based lessons, I teach skills based lessons with the following lesson plan/structure/system:

Time: 10 Minutes
*Introduction/Review: If this is your first lesson, I ask you to tell me about yourself and your leaning goals. if this is not your first lesson, we say greet each other and then we go over any corrections I sent about the 3-5 sentence writing assignment we completed during the last lesson. I send a document in PDF format within 24 hours after your lesson.

Spelling, phrasing, and grammar are corrected this way.
[Skills - Grammar and Spelling]

Time: 20 minutes
*Discussion: We discuss whatever topics you want to discuss. This is your chance to ask a native speaker who lives in the US about US culture, business, and current events.
[Skills: Listening, Improvisation, and Fluency]

Time: 10 minutes
*Reading and writing: An article you or I choose is read by you silently. Any vocabulary that is not understood is explained. You are then asked to write 3-5 sentences about that article. My articles come from breakingnewsenglish.com. I challenge more advanced students to write all 5 sentences.
[Skills: Vocabulary Development, Reading, and Writing]

Time 10 minutes
*Reading out loud: First I read sentences or paragraphs (the length depends on your skill) out loud from the article and then you repeat them after me. After that we read sentences or paragraphs from the article at the exact same time in order to intuitively correct pronunciation and intonation.
[Skills: Reading, Listening, Pronunciation, and Accent Reduction]

Time: 9 minutes
Activities: You will have to complete a variety of activities based on the article, including phrase matching, synonym matching, comprehension questions, and choosing the correct prepositions and articles for sentences.
[Skills: Reading Comprehension, Grammar, Phrasing, and Vocabulary]

Time: 1 minute
Wrap up
We review what we just went over and then we say goodbye!

Also, if you have any ideas for other styles of lessons, or materials you would like to use, please message me in advance about them and I will consider teaching them in a way that meets your goals.

*(Optional) Homework:
Time: 45 minutes
I ask all my students who are serious about making improvements to keep an English learning journal.

In this journal I ask that for five days a week you watch an online series/TV show or read a book for 30 minutes and write 5 sentences about what happened and what you think about what happened in your journal.

I also ask that you listen to a native English speaker (through a video or a podcast) and repeat what you hear by speaking out loud. I then ask you to play that same part over again and speak at the exact same time as the native speaker with the goal being to match the pronunciation exactly. Please do this for 15 minutes five days a week.

If you are serious about making improvements I will ask for you to show me this journal at the beginning of each lesson ensure you are working to achieve your goals.


A little bit about me:
I'm a professional full time ESL teacher. I first started teaching English in 2014 inside a London classroom. Since the start of this year, I have been teaching one on one lessons online and I absolutely love it.

I'm 32, a dual US-UK citizen, and I live near Cocoa Beach in Florida. I I enjoy spending time with my family, my girlfriend, and her 7 year old daughter. We like going to Disney World in Orlando and watching rocket launches.

I'm friendly and open minded to different lifestyles, cultures, and religions. So far, I have taught students of various professions from Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas.

I'm currently learning Mandarin Chinese with a tutor on Verbling. I've studied Spanish at college, though I am not fluent in it.
