BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

by Bruce Lee

And what about this quotation by Albert Einstein? It is most appropriate to my case:

"I never teach my pupils; I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn."

"I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand." by Confucius




"To be, or not be: that is the question" (Hamlet, by Shakespeare)


"To pass, or not to pass: that is your choice...... and here I am to help you!!!" (by Albert)


My e-mail:  albertomeditutor@gmail.com

''No man is an island...' John Donne

What do I have in mind when organizing this kind of experiences for my students??? Read this quote and you'll understand.
 
"Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value." by Albert Einstein

  MOST INTERESTING.

Our dear Philosophy teacher, José Luis, has just discovered something about a course on writing skills organized by the University of Reading for our students in Bachillerato. It lasts 5 weeks and, the most important, it is free.

Here is the link to the course if you want to sign in: https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/english-for-study

The level recommended to be able to follow the course is IELTS 4.5 (You can check it in this table), so good students of bachillerato should have no problems.

JUST HAVE A LOOK AT AND THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!   Don't chicken out!!!

CONGRATULATIONS to Elena Pérez (2º ESO A) for her B2 at INSTITUTE OF MODERN LANGUAGES.



They have just sent me some information about SUMMER ENGLISH COURSES (If you are interested, you can contact your English teacher, Albert).
SUMMER ENGLISH COURSES

MOST INTERESTING INFORMATION ABOUT THE RESULTS OF OUR SCHOOL IN SELECTIVIDAD (June 2013):

  • Our students obtained an average mark in English of 7,01 (ranked 18 out of 115) while the average mark obtained in the province (Distrito Universitario) was 5,84 (where only 64,74% passed the exam).

  • Our students were ranked 9 out of 115 schools in the average mark obtained in all the exams in Selectivity with a difference of 1,09 points between the marks our students had in 2º Bachillerato and the ones they had in the Selectivity exams (ranked 23 out of 115 schools), which means that we had splendid results in the exams and that our school is really realiable.




ANOTHER THREE STUDENTS HAVE PASSED THEIR B1 at the official language in Motril (September 2013)

The names of the students who have passed the exam are: Elena De la O, Luz Fernández and Patricia González (2º Bachillerato). Let me know if there is someone else.


Congratulations to our student Anna María Rodríguez Pöhnlein for having achieved one of the highest marks in the Selectivity exams in the province of Granada. (entry in my blog) 

CONGRATULATIONS TO MEDITERRANEAN SEA SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS!!!!

SEVEN of our students have passed the B1 at the Language School Exam (tell me if there is someone else) and their names are: Cristóbal Tarifa, Álvaro Rodríguez, Inmaculada Maldonado, Noemi De la O, David Prados (2º Bachillerato), Álvaro Lucena y Luis Molina (1º Bachillerato).


A la vista de los libros de texto y teniendo en cuenta las lecturas que cada asignatura recomienda, sería buen momento para comprar/vender en el MERCADILLO LITERARIO DE SEGUNDA MANO o directamente ir a los grupos implicados para ver si se pueden ahorrar unas pelillas.
