Personal Description:

Hi there,
My name is Hichem and I am a native speaker of Arabic who has been living in the UK since 2000. I was recently qualified as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language, however, I have been private-tutoring students of all ages and abilities on a one to one basis (and small groups as well) for several years.
I first became interested in EFL teaching through private teaching whilst still a university undergraduate student at Edge Hill University. This made me realise how much I enjoyed working with English language learners. My MA in Applied Linguistics at Liverpool University has served further to strengthen my knowledge about English language teaching and learning. CELTA has served further to fire my enthusiasm and prepared me effectively to take responsibility for my own class and prepare me effectively to teach. I have been living in the UK for almost 15 year, so I can confidently say that my fluency in written and spoken English are at a native speaker level.
I currently have the following qualifications:
- MA Applied linguistics (English as a Second Language) Pass
- BA (honours) English Language 2:1
- Celta (Pass)
- City and Guilds 7307 Certificate in Teaching Adult Learners (PTLLS LEVEL 1 Award in
Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector)

Tutoring Experience:

I taught an ESOL class on a voluntary basis for one year. The class was run by Wirral metropolitan college. I have also worked as a learning support at Wirral met where I gained a solid teaching experience and have developed ideas and strategies in terms of learning styles and differentiating students’ needs.
I have:
• Taught pre- and upper-intermediate multilingual classes of 9-19 students in English from various cultural backgrounds.
• Tailored lessons according to research and analysis of student needs
• Employed original and authentic texts; created activities targeting receptive and productive skills and language systems
• Used and adapted materials from course books
• Wrote a needs-analysis of individual students and created tasks which targeted receptive and productive skills

Tutoring Approach:

I personalise each language lesson according to the specific needs of the learner.
I identify with each student at the outset his/her preferred learning styles and which skills in particular (speaking, listening, reading, and writing) s/he wishes to develop, and for which purposes. I encourage each student to use and develop her/his language in specific contexts, so I teach language structures and vocabulary within agreed topic areas.
I exercise encouragement and patience when working with my students in order that they feel relaxed and a sense of enjoyment in learning and using the language. I use a variety of teaching resources to help motivation and to intensify interest about the language and the cultures of the countries where it is spoken
