Focus will be given on improving your exam skills by preparing for the exams through the four specific skills: oral comprehension (listening),  written comprehension (reading), oral expression (speaking), and written expression (writing).

My method involves rehearsing exams, assessment and active correction.

Active correction is interactive, the student is asked if he can spot the mistake and/or make any suggestions for corrections. This is always favoured as it allows the learner to be active and think about the mistakes in a constructive way. Of course if the student is unable to spot the mistake, I will help them spot the mistake and/or explain and correct it.
