    Talking What should i teach to my student ?

    Recently, I got a part-time job as a tutor. She is a junior school freshman, and her english’s grades were very high in elementary school. Her parents hope that I can teach her something different with books. That's definitely what I want to teach. But I don't know what is both interesting and meaningful about English because she is so young. Any suggestions will be well considered and appreciated!:lol:

    Re: What should i teach to my student ?

    You need to figure out what her areas of need are before you decide to teach her anything. Does she need to improve her reading/ writing skills? Listening/ speaking? What are her goals?

    You just can't do Harry Potter with her unless you know what your aims and objectives are.
