Information About Ellie - Kingston upon Thames teacher - (3 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Ellie:
I am a 22 year-old student currently studying a masters at UCL. As part of my undergraduate degree I lived in Salamanca (Spain) for 6 months and Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) for 7 months. Although I am a native speaker of English, I am fluent in both Spanish and Portuguese and I love speaking languages!
I have vast experience in teaching in a variety of subjects. Whilst in Brazil I worked as a teacher working with underprivileged children in a poor part of the city (teaching various subjects ranging from English to health and nutrition classes). In Spain, alongside my studies, I worked as a private English tutor for children and adults. I have also informally worked as a Spanish tutor for family and friends.
I feel the most effective teaching method is to tailor the classes to the interests and ability of the student, and to make the classes fun! If needed, my course could be used to supplement what is being taught in classes and I would follow the curriculum structure, help with homework and set extra work to help the student get ahead. Equally, if the student does not study languages in any institutions, I would make sure the course is comprehensive, focusing on many different skills (speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar, vocabulary). I use interesting and varied subject matter to inspire the students, such as travel, popular culture, what's going on in the news, cinema, fashion, politics. As a young person I feel my style of teaching is refreshing. Also having travelled extensively, I am very in touch with the cultures of Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries and would hope to pass this enthusiasm and love of languages onto the student!
