Information About Jane - Llanfyllin teacher
I teach ESOL, Arabic and French to equal levels in the Active Languages Teaching style.
I am a trained and PGCE qualified languages teacher, with a PhD in a language teaching subject. I having spent twelve years teaching in various state school systems before bringing up my family who are now teenagers.
I use the active language teaching style, consequently my lessons tend to be lively and fun!
I am very well travelled and experienced in many walks of life, having also spent the last decade with a close involvement in the music industry. I have taught pupils ranging between 5 and 75 years so am happy teaching all ages.
I also teach music production, songwriting and composition.

My teaching is learner centred and although I focus on situational objectives, I work towards grammatical objectives consistently. I believe that pupils learn languages best through usage, particularly in communicating with a skilled exponent of the language and consequently small group work has a lot to recommend itself. I usually prepare materials specifically for learner needs
