About my sessions

I believe in quite tightly structured lessons which should only aim to achieve one overall goal in total. Originally I would begin a lesson by encouraging the student to share their initial ideas on the question, as it would help me see where their strengths and weaknesses lie as well as providing them with some confidence.

I believe in quite tightly structured lessons which should only aim to achieve one overall goal in total. Originally I would begin a lesson by encouraging the student to share their initial ideas on the question, as it would help me see where their strengths and weaknesses lie as well as providing them with some confidence. Then I would design the majority of the lesson as an exemplar to the main question asked, trying to use an interesting range of texts to develop both the skills of the student and also hopefully their passion, as I believe the two can be closely related. Then I would save the end of the lesson for a discussion with the student where they can ask whatever questions they may have and could suggest topics to be covered in later lessons.

I wasn't able to connect with the tutor. I didn't get the message that the lesson was confirmed until after the lesson started. And when I tried to launch I couldn't get through to the tutor
