Definition of Virtue Ethics (A Level Philosophy)

Can someone please review my definition of Virtue Ethics? Any tips, please help!

Virtue Ethics: a situationist and teleological normative ethical theory, that focuses on what it means to be a virtuous person rather than what virtuous acts are (ie. agent-centred).

Please help! :smile:
A normative ethical theory which focuses on how to be a good person, rather than focusing on good actions. For virtue ethicists, a good action is an action a good person would do.

Not sure the teleological and situational stuff is correct.
