Information about Oliver
My teaching style is fun, inviting and friendly. I never discourage or force - creating an open space to make mistakes and grow, however I`m not afraid to challenge students to think and act for themselves.
I can play an active-teaching role by guiding activities and class topics, but also firmly believe in the importance of allowing students to guide conversations and topics and think outside the box.
Expect a lot of very visual learning with props and hand gestures, but also a range of teaching methods/ styles, for example:
- Visual - Use of whiteboard to write/ spell out word and draw a picture/ or use a picture.
- Auditory - Pronouncing word slowly and making students repeat multiple times and progressively say faster -
and to stress intonation and feel of the word.
- Kinesthetic - Act out word/ action of word and make students imitate or perhaps ask them to draw a picture of the word. A suitable prop can be used here.
