Recall/ give us a background of your training as teacher
The company often encourages the teachers to partake in necessary educational programs in rigorous training course seminars since they want us to improve our teaching methods. Every now and then, the company would provide us training and seminars that are given by the experts for our professional development.
What is your strong point as a teacher?
Well, I do believe that one of my strongest points as a teacher is understanding the needs of my students and giving them proper level assessment. In order for me to help the student with regards to the courses that they are learning, there are methods that I usually pinpoint in my classes. The assessment of my students in terms of their current language proficiency and language history are both important. These 2 will help me come up with a personalized scheme leading to their improvement.I focus on my students’ vocabulary enhancement as this would help them understand their learning materials. They can also use it as lexical resources in the 4 parts of IELTS. The most important part is the provision of genuine feedback that allows them to know their strengths and weaknesses, so they can focus their energy in improving their weak points. This will help them a lot even after graduating from Pines.
