My essay writing classes consist of two main functions: foundational training (introducing elements such as structure, style, syntax) and practical training (consolidating the above elements through frequent practice and feedback, as well as adding flair to written pieces through discussing more nuanced aspects such as tone and angle). These lessons are appropriate for all age groups from younger students who are seeking to enhance their basic essay writing skills to older students who are looking to take their written delivery to the next level. My approach to essay writing have been strengthened through years of practice, from IB History and Literature HL to a bachelor's degree in International Relations - all of which are centered around written delivery. My english conversational classes take a more personalized approach. I am a firm believer that effective conversations stem from a student's enthusiasm in a given topic. Reaching a level of comfort in 'speaking out loud' comes before technical correctness, and the student's personal passions can bolster this process. Therefore, I design my lessons with the student, after getting to know them and their interests a bit more thoroughly. Thus far, some examples of lesson structures have included: topic-based lessons (choosing a topic together, assigning related video or articles for homework, comprehensive debate/discussions during the lesson), movie-based lessons etc. (similar process, also enhances listening skills, suited for younger students who may struggle with active interaction in complex topics).
저의 에세이 수업은 기초 교육 (구조, 문체, 구문 등의 요소 소개)과 실습 (자주 연습과 피드백을 통해 위의 요소를 통합하는 것, 더 톤 및 각도를 뉘앙스있게 활용하여 글에 감각을 더하는 두 가지 주요 기능으로 구성됩니다. 이 수업은 기본적인 에세이 쓰기 능력을 향상시키려는 어린 학생들부터 에세이 전달을 한단계 위로 높이기를 원하는 고학년 학생들에게 적합합니다. 에세이 쓰기에 대한 저의 접근 방식은 IB 역사 및 문학 HL에서 국제 관계 학사 학위에 이르기까지 수년간의 연습을 통해 강화되었습니다.
저의 영어 회화 수업은 개인화 된 접근 방식을 따릅니다. 효과적인 대화는 주어진 주제에 대한 학생의 열정에서 비롯됩니다. 회화에는 '소리내어 말하기’가 기술적 정확성보다 우선하며 이런 편안함에 도달하는것은 학생의 개인적열정이 과정을 강화할 수 있습니다. 따라서 학생들과 그들의 관심사를 좀 더 철저히 알게 된 후 학생과 함께 수업을 디자인합니다. 지금까지 수업 구조의 몇 가지 예에는 주제-베이스 수업 (주제를 함께 선택, 관련 비디오 또는 기사에 대한 토론), 영화-수업 등이 포함되었습니다 (비슷한 과정, 복잡한 주제에서 활발한 상호 작용에 어려움을 겪을 수있는 어린 학생들에게 적합한 듣기 기술).
