Hi! I'm a new teacher I live in Barcelona, buy I'm argentine :) I'm starting to teach one to one classes. My problem is I have no idea how to organize my teaching... what do I teach first? Do I start with simple present and go from there? do I evaluate my sts to see the level...? and then what? can anyone give me some pointers? :) thanks!!! this webpage is amazing!

      Hello Paula! I would definitely start with a pre-assessment then develop your plan. If a foreign language, I would assess formal writing and then both formal and informal speaking. An informal chat would also be a wonderful way to make a connection to the student.
