Overview

A dynamic and result oriented teacher committed to teaching a passion for learning English as a Second Language or as a Foreign Language.
I have taught to hundreds of students from across south India whose respective regional languages being spoken as their first language and with a diverse cultural inheritance. This has helped me understand the unspoken essentials of the language learners and help them acquire English as their second language with ease and confidence.
Apart from connecting with students on a one to one basis, I am experienced in designing and delivering Train the Trainer program for a group of teachers empowering them with the structured approach to teaching English as a Second language to young learners.
Also, I am a course architect with a clear insight in developing and implementing a creative, hands-on curriculum that reaches every student's learning style and ability, enabling students to succeed and realise their individual goals.
Also, I have to my credit, an International Advanced Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) with specialisation in teaching business English from the American TESOL Institute.

Teaching Experience in detail in Spoken English classes

Ensuring students to flow with the flow of the language specific to a context ; that is the spoken language features such as variation in speed (but it is generally faster than writing), Loudness or quietness, Gestures - body language, Intonation, Stress, Rhythm, Pitch range, Pausing and phrasing is very key and requires creativity and a good understanding on the cognitive abilities of the student learning. It is a wonderful experience indeed.

Suresh attended IELTS Coaching

"I have distrusted on my English abilities till the time my IELTS Mentor Mr Karthikeyan Saminathan (Karthik Nathan) spoke with me to understand my expectations. Further he had put me on a Placement Test to validate my English abilities. Prior to starting the IELTS classes, he helped me doing a bridge course in English Basics. He has a well-defined and structured framework for teaching IELTS to the expectations of the student. His step-by-step approach to each of the IELTS Modules is truly good. Being moderate to learning, I could understand the strategies and could implement the strategies positively. He has taking one to one class so it is very useful those who preparing for the IELTS Exam and he has a good knowledge having lots of ideas .Personally he is good and positive minded person. He Guided me step by step to prepare for IELTS exam. I certainly would recommend Mr Karthik Nathan to my friends. Thanking you Sir. "

Vijay Babu B attended Spoken English

"The training was very clear and detail. Mr. Karthik conducted the class in very professional manner. A lot of information was covered and at the end of each session Karthik will run through the course that was covered on that day, which help the student to remember everything in mind. The syllabus he covered was very helpful for the beginners.. His guidance and assignments provided was also very helpful. At the end of the course I had benefited in learning the basics and think through in English and I can now make a meaningful sentences. The instructor, Mr. Karthik is very easy to communicate and educated me with very interesting real life examples of the course materials. I enjoy learning about this material to help me do my job better. "

Chandu attended IELTS Coaching

"I appreciate the true determination of my IELTS Mentor Mr Karthikeyan Saminathan (Karthik Nathan) in making me realise the importance of self-practice in graduating oneself from one band to its next. Ensuring that, I match my abilities to the standards of the band descriptors of my target band score should have not been an easy task to my mentor. He helped bring in me the hard working attitude towards each of the IELTS Modules and ensured that I apply what I have learnt to self-study practice. A step-by-step approach by my mentor, to different sections of each of the IELTS Modules have helped me gain a new and comprehensive insight in defining a strategy very specific to the questions to each of the modules. Today I realise, that the way I started answering to questions while speaking to anyone around me have changed the IELTS way. The more granular approach to getting the right answers to various questions of the IELTS Reading module with more live and hands-on practice sessions with real-time guided examples are truly good and of great help. The approach to cracking Listening and Writing modules are more practical and easy to understand and implement. More practice sessions and home assignments on these two modules are well acknowledged. I am confident of achieving an overall band score of 7+. I also understand that â??There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.â??"

Answer to your first question:
To improve your speaking abilities listen to more English conversations and try to focus on the phrases. Skilled readers recognise patterns in words rather than sound words out, letter by letter. Word families, also known as phonograms, rimes, or chunks.
Answer to your second question ( how could I improve my General English which is asked in competitive exams):
From your question, I understand that you are referring to the verbal reasoning in exams like GRE, GMAT, or CAT. I would advise you to either join to academies or hire professionals or Subject Matter Experts online.

How do I prepare for GRE and TOEFL during my B Tech? Which year should I start? Will a gap after UG affect my chances?

I would suggest you to start preparing for both at the start of 7th semester. It is certainly easy and acheivable if you plan it right. For GRE one may need beetween 30 and 90 days ideally, and for TOEFL you may require at least 30 hours of self practice.
