I am an enthusiastic, successful Teaching Professional with significant experience as a European Project Manager and PR in the educational field.
My Master Degree is in Modern Languages and Literature and my post-graduation is in Education Sciences,
I also have a Diplôme Supérieure de Langue et Littérature Française at Alliance Francaise and certificates in Art therapy and in Cognitive behaviour therapy.
I am a qualified and experienced teacher, having more than 25 years of language and human studies teaching in public and private schools, in the UK and abroad.
I have also experience with special educational needs students, and in recent years I have been collaborating with the Special Educational Needs department at Bromely Council and the NHS.
I have conducted GCSE speaking exams for several schools in London and my students' preparation for their exams always achieve outstanding results.
I am thus able to provide tutoring in MFL, English language and literature on all levels and I am also qualified to teach the subjects of GCSE and A level Sociology and Psychology.
My one-to-one and small group sessions include preparation for exams (GSCE, A levels, University and Language Certification), as well as teaching adults for professional and cultural purposes.
I encourage students to enjoy and collaborate in their learning.
I aim to provide good quality teaching in a homely atmosphere, that enhances their confidence and motivation.
In my language and literature tuition, I focus on improving the spoken fluency and the listening skills of my students while developing their confidence in reading and discussing interesting topics. Grammar is also an essential part of my tuition, and it is learnt according to the topics, explained in context and consolidated with fun practice. Culture is also fundamental in each lesson.
I always ensure adequate differentiation in my teaching, taking into consideration the individual learning needs and learning styles of my students. This results in excellent communication between both parties and the practical learner assessment throughout the course. Paramount to my approach is the enthusiasm for the subjects I teach. I sincerely enjoy teaching and motivating students to improve their skills and reach their highest potential with confidence.
