Information About Jane - Cupar teacher - (4 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Jane:
After studying a degree in French & Spanish and a postgraduate diploma in Foreign Languages for Business I went to live in Spain for 7 years where I worked for a Spanish shipyard. I totally immersed myself in their life and culture and was lucky enough to live with Spanish people.
When I returned to live in Scotland I qualified to teach modern languages to adults and secondary age children.
I can understand the difficulties language learners have when learning a language and endeavour to make the learner feel relaxed & gain confidence.
I taught Conversational Spanish for Fife Council Community Education for over 11 years and was a Spanish tutor at Dundee University and Tayside Language Centre. I am currently teaching English as a Foreign Language for Tayside Language Centre. I have also tutored individuals and groups in French and Spanish for Password Language Studio from beginner to university level.
I have taught French & Spanish to 12- 17 year olds in Scottish secondary schools and have taught Spanish to my own children from birth.
I discuss with the student what skills they would like to work on and what topics would be useful and interesting for them to study. You might want to learn French or Spanish for your holiday, for business or need help with your school work. If it's for a holiday you might be more interested in practising your speaking and listening skills so that you can order food and drink. I can tailor the lessons to your requirements.
It may be that you are not a native English speaker and need help with conversation skills or pronunciation.
I like to create a relaxed atmosphere and make language learning fun so that the learner loses their nervousness and gains confidence.
