English (Foreign Language)
I am a recent graduate from University with a keen willingness for learning languages. Having travelled and lived abroad my whole life, I have grown an appreciation for culture and people.
I love to read, my favourite books those by Cassandra Clare and Dr Seuss!
I am currently trying to learn to play the guitar as I love music and have a special sweet spot for Frank Sinatra and the Beatles.
At the University of Sunderland I studied Spanish and TESOL. I recently undertook a year abroad in Spain, working in two bilingual schools (a primary and a secondary school) as an English Language Assistant for the British Council. I further offered English tuition to the staff in school. This allowed me the opportunity to gain experience working with children from the ages of 4 to the age of 18, as well as with adults.
I thoroughly enjoy working in a teaching environment where learning languages are concerned. I enjoy teaching in a classroom environment, on a one to one basis or even online!
During my time at University, I offered free tuition to pupils who needed help on their written and spoken English.
A little different to this, I have also worked in a special needs school whereby I worked one on one with a particular student and also as a classroom TA. I organised and offered extra help to both staff and students from getting work in a variety of subjects completed to helping pupils with any behavioural issues.
My approach to tutoring is wholly dependant on my learner and what they hope to gain from our sessions. I prefer to do what I call a "practice session", where I see what it is the learner wants and if I can offer that in a way that works for them.
I aim for a fun, interesting and dynamic lesson, and something not often found in the classroom. My style aims to tailor every lesson to exactly what my tutee wants and needs.
I hope that my love and passion for languages inspires my tutee to carry on long after our sessions are over and in turn inspire those after them.
