Personal Description:

Hi, my name's Rebecca and I'm a very enthusiastic and passionate teacher. I'm originally from Cambridge, England but I love travelling so I have lived in South America, Scotland and now Ireland.In my spare time I love reading history books, baking, playing the piano, riding my bike and socializing.

Tutoring Experience:

I have a BA (1st class Hons) Degree in English Lit/History and a CELTA qualification so I can teach English both one-to-one and in classroom settings. I have taught English/ESL and History for the last five years to students of a variety of ages and abilities including children, adults and teenagers.

I began my teaching career by teaching English to speakers of other languages in classrooms both in South America and the UK. I truly loved the excitement and sense of satisfaction I gained from seeing my students progress and having fun learning English!

The last two years I have specialised in one-to-one tuition and exam support for Junior/Senior school students. I have taught so many wonderful teenagers who had a severe lack of confidence with their English and History and it has been so rewarding to see them grow to love the subject and to excel in their exams.

Approach to Grinds:

I believe that a successful approach to teaching must include enthusiasm and a personalised approach to each student. I think that most students struggle with the subject and lose their enjoyment of it because of a lack of confidence and fear of failure so I try to boost their confidence with lots of sincere praise and commendation. Learning must also be fun as well as progressive and this makes it memorable and motivates a student to learn.

I like to have an initial consultation meeting with the student (and parents) to gauge their level and formulate a learning plan which suits their individual needs. Thereafter, I establish regular weekly lessons and I like to keep close communication with parents so that they are always informed about what their son/daughter is learning and any areas in which they can support their studies.
