Information About Megan - Marlow teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Megan:
My name is Megan and I have recently graduated from the University of Birmingham with a first-class degree in Spanish and Translation Studies. I am a caring, intelligent and dedicated individual who is keen to help others achieve the very best they can.
I have a passion for languages and have done since school. For me, a language is more than just words, it is the culture and history of those who speak it.
As part of my degree, I undertook a year abroad in Valencia where I worked in an international law firm. Not only did this year massively improve my Spanish language skills, but it also enabled me to experience the Spanish culture!
In terms of my teaching experience, I have tutored Spanish for the last couple of years and have even taught English at a summer camp in the Basque country. By using my knowledge and experiences from these last few years, both at university and in Spain, I hope to instill some of my passion into those I tutor, encouraging them to work harder and achieve higher than they ever thought possible!
Having also experienced GCSE and A-Level exams relatively recently, I can also provide guidance on some of the best, tried and tested revision and exam techniques.
The structure and delivery of my lessons will depend entirely on the students themselves, what works best for them and their learning. That said, with language learning, I am a firm believer in practice rather than theory. Therefore, I encourage students to speak as much Spanish as they can during the hour!
I also believe that, with languages, confidence gets you at least half of the way! So, a relaxed and friendly environment is really important to me to give my tutees the confidence to just go for it!
During the first meeting, I will gage the student's level, strengths, and weaknesses and also what the student hopes to achieve through our sessions. I will also ask for the syllabus they are following at school so that I can properly prepare!
Once I have all this, I will then put together a plan for the lessons, completely geared towards the tutee's needs, whether that be speaking practice, listening practice, specific exam questions, etc… I am completely flexible!
