Tailor-made English Tutorials Based on Reading and Storytelling
I teach: Bulgarian, English
1 Where and when I have learned EnglishI started learning English in 1995, after my graduation from Sofia University, in a Suggestopedic course... at the same university and because of my passion for knowing and trying new learning methods and approaches, i.e. Suggestopedia in that particular case. The incredible Suggestopedic course gave me a mighty impuls to continue learning English and such self-confidence that I started applying my newly acquired language skills almost immediately, for translation and communication, in my new staff training related job.I also self-studied English and took two more courses: one on-the-job and the last at Thanet College, England in 2004 (Advanced level +IELTS preparation course). In its end, I obtained my IELTS certificate (International English Learning Testing System), band 7.5. I have been improving my English ever since. 2 My methodsI am learner-centred and help people learn as naturally as possible. My way of English tutoring is influenced by both Suggestopedia, which I have experienced myself as a learner, as well as the language acquisition hypothesis by Stephen Krashen. Three are the main pillars that: I rely on as a tutor: good interpersonal communication; taking advantage of the omnipresent ICT; and contextual learning. 2.1 Interpersonal Communication:I have got on-the job training and 7-year experience in career guidance, including communication skills, and rely on them for helping (facilitating) your English learning as a rutor. My tutorials are learner-centred, i.e. based on your individual needs, and also conversational, interactive, in a positive and friendly atmosphere of mutual respect. 2.2 Taking Advantage of ICTIn my tutorials, I am striving to seamlessly merge everyday life with English learning through ICT, i.e. we use ICT in the way we do it daily, while at the same time, each of us may learn from the other new ways and applications. Besides being our communication media, ICT also provide us with content to choose from, i.e. texts and stories as well as grammar and drilling (exercising) materials. You can pick what is meaningful for you, thus co-creating your English course. ICT also gives us more sophisticated ways of self-expression and creativity, which may stretch beyond our learning interaction. 2.3 Contextual learning.You learn English contextually, i.e. through a lot of references to your own life experience and environment, on one hand, and through fiction, be it literature and films/videos or stories thought up by us, on another hand. Storytelling is one of the key methods in my tutorials. 3 What my students will learnMy students will advance in general English and especially in the topics of highest interest to them, since the course is tailor-made and we will be shaping the content together;They will gain self-confidence for practical application of their language skills in their lives;Their language learning motivation will be kept strong and even boosted;The learners will try and learn a range of language learning strategies and techniques they could apply further on, including as independent learners. 4 My teaching experienceI have been teaching English since 2013 in private language centres as well as through providing online English tutorials myself.My English teaching practice is based on sound background (Master’s degrees in Pedagogy and in Cultural Heritage & Tourism) and more than 25 years of practice in non-formal education and lifelong learning including seven years in vocational guidance (focus on staff training), as well as 15+ years in European project work.English teaching qualification:- TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) 150 hours just before completion at Arizona State University, with two intermediate certificates already obtained Read more
