Jerry McConkey Teaching English or Spanish
No reviews yet

I believe in teaching a happy class because students (and everyone for that matter) are more attentive and productive if they're happy and so is the teacher! I have a large amount of teaching materials in two languages (Spanish & English) that I've been able to accumulate over the years. This is an advantage because I can offer each student what he/she needs. Also the idea is to present new material at every class even though some slow students need to repeat a lot to keep up. The Idea here would be to offer the slow ones remedial teaching on an agreed upon extracurricular schedule. Again, if a student asks a question that you can't answer on the spot, promise him/her that you'll have the answer in the next class.
