When tutoring students, I use the humanistic approach to learning. This approach is a collection of different ways to teach language taking into account not only intellect of the student but also the student's feelings. My tutoring methods also include an initial assessment of the student's level of English language skills. This assessment allows me to understand the student's language needs and design appropriate lesson plans. My teaching methods include the use of visual aids, pictures, realia, flashcards, timelines, videos, and computer assisted learning. Use of these methods when teaching give the student many opportunities to practice the language by speaking, writing, listening and reading. I am a certified TOEFL instructor.
