Who I am: Hi there, Kelly here. I've been around teaching Thai in Singapore for over 10 years. I created my own lesson materials, and constantly updating them to make it more fun and interesting. I have taught over 10,000 hours including private, group, and corporate classes. I am also a tutor for Thai language at IHL.
What I teach: Thai language to both kids and adults. Conversation, reading, writing. I can also teach English to the Thais.
How: Learning language is fun when you have good methods and materials. I have my specially designed lesson materials to go over from basic to intermediate to advance. From zero to hero. I do encourage LOTS of movies/drama series watching to build up your listening skills (even if you don't end up learning from me).
> Beginners learn vocabulary and sentence structure through carefully selected sentences and stories.
> Intermediate users learn expressions through songs and movies, and of course if you wish to, reading Thai is usually offered at this point.
> Advance learners will touch on more thematic lessons, more movies, and if you want to, more reading materials.
Where: At my location (no additional charge) or your location (additional charge applicable). We can of course do through Zoom (thanks but no thanks to Covid).
When: Weekday or Sunday
Why me: With 10+ years of experience, I surely know something. Jokes aside, I am confident to deliver. I have many testimonials from past and existing students. Oh, have I mentioned that I speak French? Learnt it the hard way for many years, the group lesson with very minimal listening and a lot of grammar exercises. Currently I am exploring Japanese in a totally different method (self learning, conversation-based textbooks, apps, and of course anime) in order to understand language-learning techniques to share with students. In addition, personalised topics can be offered upon request.
How much: (from 3rd session onwards)
1 student/1 hr x 4 sessions @ $210 weekday, $280 weekend
1 student/1.5 hr x 4 sessions @ $320 weekday, $390 weekend
1 student/class/1 hr x 4 sessions @ $190 weekday, $230 weekend
Please check with me for group lesson rate (2 - 3 students for in person and 2 - 5 students for Zoom)
Netflix! There are a lot of Thai movies and series for you to immerse in Thai speaking situations without having to travel elsewhere. That, and of course lessons with me. ;-)
Ok to be fair, it is easy to pick up but it takes some effort to master. I can provide the best materials using the most effective methods, ultimately students have to make time for me (for lessons) and for themselves (for revisions).
