Tutoring/Home School 2809 Views
Being a home tutor is an enjoyable experience which I would recommend to anyone who can make the grade. You are welcomed into homes as a valued guest, your knowledge is sought after and you are well-paid at the end of each lesson. Unfortunately it is not for everyone so here's a simple test to see if you have the 'right stuff' to become a tutor. Please note that a tutor does not necessarily need to be or have been a teacher.

A child is taught three parts of writing simultaneously. They are accurate letter construction, identical letter size, and the same tilt throughout the writing. They should be taught to concentrate on one objective only at the first attempt. He or she, should learn the building of letters first, but one by one.

In a traditional college class instructors will likely have a fairly predictable group of students and they can be visually assessed, even though perceptions may not always be accurate. For online students there can be a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences, and the traditional definition of a college student no longer applies. That's why the phrase non-traditional students has been used to describe the online student as it represents a group of students who have different needs. It becomes imperative for online instructors to learn who their students are and their present capacity if they are going to be able to assist them and support their development.
Within an online class it is possible to have every variety of student and this is inclusive of learning disabilities, physical disabilities, mental impairments, and the list continues. There is a saying that you should not judge a book by its cover and with online students there is no visible cover to assess. Even the phrases ...

Why listening does not always improve your listening skill?
How you can improve your listening skill effectively?
What to do if you are too lazy to search for good listening materials?
To improve your English listening skill is really easy. All you've got to do is listen to a lot of English... Right? Well, yes. But also no. The thing is there are some problems with this way of thinking. Why?
For example, do you find yourself listening to English, but sometimes stop paying attention? You don't even realize it, but several minutes have gone past and you have been thinking about something completely different.
I am sure, you don't catch any of the English words or phrases that you heard. Or maybe even what the thing you were listening to is about.
This is probably because you were not really listening. Your mind is going somewhere and you cannot concentrate. Obviously, this is not going to improve your English listening skills.
So why does this happen?
This happen because probably the ...

Grammar 2803 Views
If a sentence has a singular subject, it is followed by a singular verb and if it has a plural subject, it is followed by a plural verb;that is, the verb agrees with the subject. Compare:
• She lives in Thailand.
• Most people live in Asian than in any other continent.
Some nouns with a singular form can be treated either as singular (with a singular verb) or (with a plural verb):
• The council has (or have)postponed a decision on the new road.
Other words like this include association, audience, class, committee, department, electorate, family, government, orchestra, population, staff, university, and the names of specific organisations such as the Bank of England, the BBC, IBM, Sony. We use a singular verb if we see the institution or organisation as a whole unit and a plural verb if we see it as a collection of individuals. Often you can use either with very little difference in meaning, although in formal writing (such as academic writing), it is more common to use a singular verb. ...

Assessment is a way of finding out if learning has taken place, but it's also necessary to assess the entry behaviour / understanding of your learners as well as checking to see if objectives have been met. In this article, based on an assignment prepared as part of my PTLLS (Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector) course, I'll be considering different assessment types, and also the need for good Record Keeping. Records are kept to show how learners are progressing and are essential in allowing a learner to complete a course and gain the qualification for which they have studied.
Assessment can be formative (on-going) or summative (at the end), and can be formal or informal. It is about collecting information, making judgements based on interpreting that information, and then deciding on the relevant course of action to achieve the course objectives. Formal assessments include written, oral and practical tests or recorded observations (using video, Dictaphone or witness ...
