My name is Ana Karina and have been a tutor for more than 3 years now. I ent to La Sorbonne to study french and lived in France for about 4 years. I have worked for different clients and one language company named Inlingua where I had the chance to teach the three languages to business men at Uniliver HQ, BMW HQ, Procter and Gamble HQ, Volvo HQ, BP and many more. I also taught home makers, College and graduate students and previously kids and teenagers. I use a method which consists on having the student to talk as much as possible so that He or She can be fluent as fast as possible. The purpose in most classes depending on the level is to have the student talk more than the instructor. The more the sudent speaks the more the student feels comfortable expressing what he or she has learned and will even realize by themselves the mistakes they are making or could make before even expressing it.
I also focus on the students' needs or objectives. Sometimes that might be the TOEFL or a CEF exam or to get a job in a different country. I am very open to adjusting the teaching method that would be more appropriate for you.
I love seeing the progress students make overtime and how happy and more succesful they are because they hav eimproved their language skills. It's very fullfilling to see how sometimes they only knew a few words and now they can hold a convesation or how reading becomes a lot easier to comprehend.
