'Online Teaching' with Mrs.Kaur
April 2015 – Present (2 years)Dubai, United Arab Emirates
In the capacity of Senior Teacher for English Language and Literature, I rendered my teaching skills to Senior Students preparing for the Board Exams following IGCSE, GCSE, GCE, CBSE, ICSE and IB Syllabus. Holding a wealth of 15 years of formal teaching experience (and 14 years of self- employed teaching), I aim to provide enjoyable and interactive learning in the areas of Language Enhancement and the Understanding of Literary Texts in different genres by different writers. Abundant use of Interactive White Board in the Classrooms, Power Point and Video Presentations and Slideshows, in addition to recourse to the use of varied media of learning, has been my forte.
I also hold a longstanding experience in preparing students for TOEFL, SAT and IELTS. Skilled at training students for Dramatics, Inter-School Debates and Poetry Writing Competitions, I specialise in offering my expertise to the students with the view to help improve their writing as well as oral skills. Above all, my prime aim is to encourage the students to feel passionate about the subjects and to rekindle in them the genuine desire to learn.
I worked for 15 years, teaching the Edexcel GCSE Syllabus at the O Levels. Obtaining excellent results achieved through a proficient follow up of the Coursework and Projects, I enjoyed a wonderful and easy accessibility with all my students. I have a total of 29 years of teaching experience, including 14 years of self- employed tutoring. In addition to imparting justice to all the essentials of the Language counterparts of the syllabus, equal justice was meted out in the field of Literature with relation to all different genres and forms of writing.
However, alongside the changing trends in Teaching, I acquired all the skills to provide VAK learning, comprising of all forms of interactive teaching for a comprehensive acquisition of knowledge by the students, in addition to developing genuine interest in the subjects. Presently engaged in 'Online Tutoring' I recommend it to be an excellent means of interactive learning at a minimal cost and expenditure- saving time, energy and money.
