English (Foreign Language)
My name is Daniella and I am based in Crystal Palace. I am a fully qualified secondary school teacher who teaches both English KS3, 4 and A Level in a school in the Greenwich Borough. I am an experienced teacher (9years) who very much enjoys her job. My aim to create an industrious yet comfortable approach to learning where the student feels relaxed and positive about their learning.
In a recent OFTSED inspection I recieved a "Good" with strong features and was described as, "assertive, confident and professional."
As well as tutoring young people, I also teach English as a Second/Foreign Language and have held my TEFL certificate for six years now. I enjoy learning about different cultures which is a definite perk to teaching TESOL. I am also available for proofreading, CV writing and interview skills for adults.
When I'm not teaching I am a filmaker and writer. I've had my short films in festivlas around the world, which has certainly been a highlight and I am currently writing a childrens' book. I love live bands, salsa, the great outdoors, films, reading, going to the theatre and also play the drums!
I have six years secondary school experience at a school in Greenwich Borough teaching English at KS3, 4 and 'A' level.
I also have nine years TESOL experience in various schools in London. TESOL teaching includes 1 to 1 tutoring as well as group tutoring all levels, from beginner to advanced. I have also done a year volunatry TESOL teaching in Tanzania.
I also have five years 1-2-1 S.E.N private tuition experience.
I have tutored both children and adults from all walks of life for all sorts of reasons and tailored their course to suit their individual needs.
I love teaching but more so I love watching a student progress. To get the best out of a student, it is important that I know what exactly they wish to improve on, for example basic literacy, reading, writing, vocabulary, spelling or a bit of everything. If I can gain as much information as possible before we start the better. However, I will give students a basic "test" so that I can best gauge their levels and areas that need improving.I create a warm and comfortable atmosphere and use a variety of texts and activities to keep the student engaged.
Depending on the needs of the student, I will tailor my teaching methods and resources in to suit.
