#meetmypuppet #bringyourpuppettowork There are so many times I have used a puppet in class when a student is either silent, shy, or bored. I just love how some students will suddenly open up and start talking to my puppet. Hilarious and so satisfying!

I agree. I have a big E.T. puppet for when I teach about outer space. Kids love E.T.!

#newbietips #newbie Wouldn’t it be great to have a ONE STOP place for newbie tips! We have so many expert teachers and if everyone could give only 1 tip, we would have hundreds of newbie tips!

Just don’t panic,relax and let things evolve, with some key questions of course and lots of student talk time. Make people feel like you really want to know their opinions,a bit like a chat show host, with EFL skills.

#teacherandperformer
I have learned, throughout the years, that teaching online requires more than the teaching skills that you learn from your TESOL courses, or teaching experience at a B&M classroom. You also need to be a performer. Cracking a joke, making interesting facial expressions, sounding like you’re having fun to make the student want to join in…etc.

That’s so true, Amel! It’s all about being creative. I’m also a musician, and maybe that’s why I love teaching and being able to perform / be creative at the same time. 😄🎸🎹🎤

#chinese101 #whatdidmystudentsay #Chinesephrases #Chinesewords Knowing some Chinese can help you unlock some of your student’s struggle. When I understand what the parent is saying to the student, I can adapt my teaching. I have been sharing also differences in the Chinese Language on my instagram account to help teachers understand well the struggles of our students. Join me? @itutor.roxy

#best of the day- teaching an incredibly shy boy who hid behind his toys for the first 5 minutes, to then talking and laughing with me by the end of the lesson

#7secondstoimpress #7secondschallenge Did you know that it takes about 7 seconds to. make a great (or not great) impression on someone? How do you use the first few seconds in your class? I have learned to regularly change my “entrance” with students to make a lasting impression. What do you do?

#learningstruggles #eslstruggles Some sounds in the English language do not exist in the Chinese language. Why is this important? Knowing some difference between Chinese and English can help you understand the struggles of your student. I have shared many of these differences on my instagram account. For example, why do students struggle with he and she? Why do student struggle with the “th” and “r” sound? Why do many students add an extra sound to some words such as “I like-uh”?

#Ilove#toeat#ice-cream Tried puppets, asked a lot of questions, smiled a lot, nothing is working to make the junior learner speak? Ask them the miracle question, ‘Do you like ice cream?’ You will get response from the other side saying ‘yes.’ Ask again, ‘I love chocolate ice cream, what do you like?’ ‘I like chocolate ice cream!’ Yes! You made them speak! Now why don’t you upload picture of a delicious ice cream (of course the flavour they like). Trust me, they will love it, they will smile and speak!

I do this! I also use the dog sticker. Does he like ice cream? And show a picture of a real dog licking annuce cream. The kids love it!

Yes let’s work on our teaching but our ratings can suffer because of tech issues as well which is not under our control.

I’ve been reading a lot of comments from teachers who teach kids. Why don’t we talk about teaching adults, too? It is so much fun, too. There are no games and activities but the fun conversations and great rapport make classes super awesome! Let’s make some new friends! #MakingFriendsWithAdults

#classroomtips What kind of light do you need? How high should your computer be? What headset should I buy? Background? How can I make my background look great? Simple tips and tricks can make a huge difference on how you look in class. What are your classroom tips? I use two clip-on selfie lights on each side of my screen for a perfect light. Also, I make sure my camera is a little higher so I am more at eye-level with my student. Who likes to be looked down on?

#funeducationalgames #boringlessonbecomesfun What to do when you have a full blown, text heavy grammar lesson! Trying to make it fun is about the hardest challenge I face when teaching kids. They love games too, but finding a balance between just playing a game or keeping it all educational is tricky. Kids see through the “you’re still learning” game. LOL.

Hi, please do a blog article on ‘how to bring sessions with adult students to a close’. Do the best consultants have a system/procedure for doing this? A certain speech they always give? I feel I sometimes ruin all the work I have put in right at the end by being too abrupt and I would like to hear tips on ways to do this ( for different levels) so – especially large groups – leave happy.

#liveQ&A #teachertalk. More frequent CLT sessions that have a smaller group size and no specific topic maybe just student the student group you need help with. E.g. Tips for… Adults, OUP, REG juniors, Demo, etc to allow for Q&A and idea-sharing. I always get great tips from the train AND also the other teachers in the chatbox during CLT sessions.
