I am convinced that each student is unique, with her/his own strengths, challenges, sources of motivation and interests. I therefore adapt my teaching method for every student.
This is why I always start my classes with an interview, not only to evaluate the student's level, but also to get to know her/him. I learn about her/his interests, motivations, background, and build my lessons accordingly.
My classes frequently use music, cinema, sports and history in order to keep the students focused and motivated.
During my English lessons, I speak almost exclusively in English (and in French during French lessons) . This may seem difficult at first sight for beginners, but it is very effective. I always try to explain the new terms and concepts using drawing, images or acting, rather than using the student's native language.
> For online courses, I usually use Skype or Google Hangout.
> The cost of lessons varies depending on the student's level and the number of hours required.

Charles has a great professional profile. He is committed and always gives his best effort.
Colegio Mariano Rodriguez
Charles worked with me in the 'Colombia Bilingüe' program. He is very good at teaching English. My students loved him because he taught them to communicate in a foreign language. They will never forget him.
