English Teacher

Summary:

Good Morning

I have many years in teaching children with difficulties at school, I teach English and Mathematics. Many of my students had a very low average or were failing, but improved tremendously. Teaching for me comes easy as I love working with people and teaching. I have worked with different age groups, even people who need help in university.

In particular I love working with children, I find that they learn much quicker and have an open mind. I like to keep my lessons as much fun as possible, as I believe that people learns faster.

My lessons are given from my place of residence, where I have a classroom that can take up to 24 students.

If I had to rate myself as a teacher I would rate myself at a 9 out of 10. Until today I have only had 5 children that I could not help, but I must say these children had special problems two of them are presently in a school for special people.

I am a native English speaker, when taking my bachelors in Financial and business accounting I also had mathematics and English in university.
