Information About Benjamin - Bury teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Benjamin:
I have just moved back to the UK from working abroad for the past three years. I now work for a charity in the UK, but I have learnt languages from my travels and I thought it would be nice to share them with people that want to learn. My university degree was in English Language & Linguistics and TESOL, I studied French for the first half of my first year, and I learned Swahili when I lived in Zanzibar last year. I have always had a passion for language learning and for teaching the languages I know. If you want to learn one of the languages I know, I'd be happy to help!
I trained in English Language and Linguistics and TESOL at university and so have experience in teaching adults languages. I have also done placements in schools (primary and secondary) for teaching English.
Tutoring has been something I've always done when learning other languages. When learning French, I tutored 2 students to help them improve their mastery of the language and when learning Swahili, I often talked my classmates through the topic they didn't understand.
My approach is to give people a mix of grammatical understanding and vocabulary knowledge, so that they are able to understand and form the sentences that they want to say. My approach is to make sure there is a balance of writing, reading, listening and speaking to allow the student to be competent in all areas required for using the language.
I'm just here to help you to get to the level of fluency that you want to get to, so I do whatever session style is necessary to get you where you want to be.
