Personal Description:

I am a student studying German and Spanish at the University of Leeds, and I aspire to work in the field of translation and interpretation. I love learning languages and travelling, as well as passing on that language knowledge to others. Learning languages for me has helped in so many ways; it has enabled me to understand different cultures, improve my academic work and meet others from abroad.

When I am not studying, I enjoy arts and crafts and playing badminton and trampolining. I like to keep active and hike around whenever possible! I enjoy being outdoors and seeing new places.

Tutoring Experience:

I have had plenty of teaching experience, ranging from GCSE Spanish and German private tutoring (which I did alongside my A levels), to working in a nursery in Germany and most recently, teaching English abroad in Austria. I thoroughly enjoy my teaching and I aim to expand my teaching horizons a lot more in the future, with returning to my teaching abroad, and tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand that for every individual, the needs are different, and where one student struggles, another excels and vice versa. I believe in first speaking to the student and seeing which areas they struggle with, and then devising a week by week plan to improve their grades and overall, their enthusiasm for the subject.

Tutoring should be fun and shouldn't feel like the students are sitting in a lesson learning from a textbook (unless that's the approach they want me to take!), but it should include activities and lots of speaking in the target language, so that the student gets the most out of the lesson. I will cover all 4 languages bases (listening, speaking, reading and writing), focusing on those that the student has the most difficulties with. I will devise worksheets, activities, and occasionally if this is what they need help with, just a full conversation class to work on pronunciation. Whatever the work I produce, it will also help with vocabulary and grammar, something that students, even at a GCSE and A level, should begin to build upon, especially if they want to progress further with languages.

Whatever level that the student wishes to take their language learning to, whether it is just passing their exams, or applying to University etc, a qualification in a language will give them an edge, which is why I am to tutor my students so they can achieve their potential, and be proud of themselves and their hard work. I work with them so that they can apply grammar rules and vocabulary confidently, especially at GCSE and A Level, where the student has various topics and needs to learn grammar specific to the topic.
