“…encouraging and engaging”
I am particularly taken with the way that David listens to the children contributions via zoom, the chat link and within the google document, and comments on them with privately to correct or adjust or within the group to validate or acknowledge the child’s creativity and ideas. The sessions cover a lot without feeling time pressured. The sessions are encouraging and engaging with a focus on learning and questioning rather than cramming for assessment. As a home educating parent it is important to me that my child learns in a way where they feel they are an active participant and their isn’t a focus on what is right or wrong. The way the children are discussion an article or a book is broad enough to allow different abilities there is no pressure to read to the whole class or to answer direct questions which suits shyer or dyslexic children. David seems to really enjoy teaching the classes which my daughter, for one has noted and commented on. She was resistant to take part in English classes but looks forward to sessions with David and I can see the spark of a love of English being ignited in her session by session.
