English through creative play

for children

***

Holiday Fun is like an English Club. All the activities involve some creative endeavor and an adventure into the English language. It is designed for the school holidays.

School  can be a drag. Here you can learn English without noticing that you are actually making and effort in learning anything.

During these activities children acquire the language through active play similar to the way they learn their mother tongue.

During the programs that usually last for 3 hrs (4*45 min lessons) children are invited into various ‘Life like’ creative activities in order to acquire the target language through play, interaction, research, and more.

Please see the photos on the right side bar of this website and below.

I believe in active learning, so I create an active and creative educational environment and offer educational services tailored to specific needs.

During these Holiday Fun Sessions, I teach English as a foreign language via various topics, playful activities and creative ventures. As you can see from the photos, I detect the children’s interest and build our sessions around these topics so to keep the educational content interesting and attractive for them.

Since my main hobbies are art, creative writing and developing creativity in general, I integrate much of that in my teaching sessions.

You can see some of my artwork – mostly those that I created together with or in relation to children I have taught.

I especially like working with children who are not doing well in their studies. I find it a creative challenge to work with those who lack either the interest or the motivation to do better and reach their potential.

There is always a way! 🙂

I recognize that every student’s needs are different, which is the reason I customize these sessions to be as unique as the participating children, helping them attain valuable skills while making learning an enjoyable experience.

Whatever your child’s skill level or grade, I create a learning environment that is versatile, creative, interactive and supportive.

My intention is to develop your child’s cognitive skills and abilities rather than solely focusing on his/her academic achievement.

“Cog­ni­tive abil­i­ties are brain-based skills we need to carry out any task from the sim­plest to the most com­plex. They have more to do with the mech­a­nisms of how we learn, remem­ber, problem-solve, and pay atten­tion rather than with any actual knowl­edge. For instance, answer­ing the tele­phone involves at least: per­cep­tion (hear­ing the ring tone), deci­sion tak­ing (answer­ing or not), motor skill (lift­ing the receiver), lan­guage skills (talk­ing and under­stand­ing lan­guage), social skills (inter­pret­ing tone of voice and inter­act­ing prop­erly with another human being).”  What are Cognitive Abilities and Skills, and How to Boost Them?
