's preferred teaching style:
My teaching style is the Direct Approach with first having the student, for example, learn new vocabulary words then pronounce the vocabulary words. They would then use the vocabulary word in sentences. Then I would do assessment of their knowledge of the vocabulary word. I also try to incorporate these vocabulary words in their every day living.
