I base my classes on the student's needs. I'm very flexible on my teaching methods and I adapt my style according to what is useful for the student. However, I have a basic class structure that consists in three parts: first, we check the aim of the lesson by little exercises that introduce the subject, second we start the learning process doing exercises together guiding the way, fixing mistakes and rewarding the good job. finally, the class finishes with exercises where the student has to work alone to see if the content was understood.
I'm always trying to make learning fun and challenging for my students. I try to start from the basics so there won't be any empty spaces. I like to do different activities and use multimedia material as much as posible to make every lesson more enjoyable and relatable for my students.
I'm very passionate about my profession and I'm always trying to do my best. As a way to improve my performance, I constantly ask for feedback and opinions and I'm willing to modify every class in order to achieve the student's needs.
