My Beliefs & Teaching

I believe that learning English is more than just developing language skills. English should also be about making real connections with great people and having fun. In my classes, my students get many chances to express themselves and share their personal stories in English. I also use a lot of modern media and current topics in society to create meaningful lessons.

My beliefs & Teaching

I believe in having strong relationships with my students. I want to know them and I want them to know me so we can have real conversations about our lives and use English to do it. I use lots of stories and draw images when I teach. I often correct mistakes that students make, but also explain why it is a mistake and show them how to correct it.

My main goal was to improve my knowledge of English and to get a high score result on the IELTS test. Kent showed his students patience and gave us the knowledge and tools to succeed in the exam. In addition to this, he had a good understanding of student problems and always gave us practical advice on how to overcome them. In the end, I was able to reach my exam goals with the help of the right knowledge and practice Kent helped to provide.

I absolutely loved my lessons with Juan. He is personable, engaging and very charismatic. He would correct me often and explain to me the reasons behind my mistakes then give me some tips so I would not make them again. I usually get bored of lessons fast. However, I was excited and curious every single class in Juan's class. I had never looked forward to attending lessons the way I did while I had lessons with him. If you ever get the chance to be his student, I am sure you will praise him just as much if not more.

Different from orthodox teaching skills, Juan brought us knowledge about minorities of society and environment, which we barely had chances to access before. He cherishes the opportunity of connecting, provides you great advice of English skills and life, and supports you with sincerity.

Kent is knowledgeable about skills of preparing big tests. From grammar, speaking, writing, he has organized great materials of them, and always updates the latest info. My biggest improvements were in fluency and reading. Kent encouraged us to talk without hesitation, gave us practical tips for answering those difficult questions!
