Information About Rebecca - Ealing teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Rebecca:
I graduated in July 2012 with a high 2:1 in BA French from the University of Southampton. During this time I also started learning Spanish from scratch. I spent 9 months living in France as part of my degree, and after graduating I lived and worked in Spain for 3 months in order to improve my knowledge of the Spanish language. After living in Spain, I came back to the UK and worked at a translation company as a project manager and then line manager, where I was able to use my languages. Whilst working in this job, I also completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Translation in my spare time, studying via distance learning with the University of Bristol. I am now working for the University of London, providing support and development to institutions worldwide.
In my free time I enjoy baking, cycling and travelling.
Whilst on my university year abroad, I taught English at two primary schools in France. This involved lesson planning and teaching classes of up to 28 children. I have also tutored French to a few students in the UK, at both primary and secondary level. Most recently, I tutored French to a secondary school pupil, ahead of his GCSE exams, helping him to significantly improve on his predicted grade. I therefore have experience in teaching a range of subjects through different activities - I thoroughly enjoy giving private face-to-face tuition and watching students learn and increase their confidence in the language.
I have experience teaching all ages and am therefore able to adapt my teaching method to the student. I believe that it is really important to talk to students in order to gauge exactly what they want to gain out of each session, as well as to determine how best they learn. I have a good knowledge of French grammar and believe it is important to improve all aspects of language: reading, writing, speaking and listening.
