I am a qualified Secondary School Teacher with a year's experience teaching French and Spanish in secondary schools, I am also a 2016 graduate of French and business from the University of Liverpool. I offer English conversation classes online and comprehensive French and Spanish tuition up to Key-Stage 5.
I have gained my Post-Graduate Certificate in Education from Haybridge High School which is OFSTED “Outstanding” in all areas and my main placement, Pedmore Technology College and community School, a school with very diverse pupil needs and cultures. Through this experience, I have developed an ability to adapt my teaching and lesson style to deliver effective language lessons that push high-achieving classes and positively build relationships with less-able students to develop genuine progress over time. I have been responsible for planning my own lesson planning and teaching throughout the year, always seeking innovative ideas and resources using textbooks, online materials and authentic resources.
Prior to teaching I have experience tutoring one-to-one in French, Spanish and English at Primary level and have a good knowledge of how to adapt teaching for group sizes.
As a native English speaker with experience learning and teaching foreign languages, I understand how language is learned and have a good grasp of how English is formed on a grammatical level. I am currently studying an online TEFL course to enhance this knowledge further
I have graduated in French in 2016 so I have recent, first-hand experience of how to succeed in the advanced and higher French curriculum
I can simply help with informal beginner's French or Spanish tuition if required. I work through structured KS3-5 French studies to help solidify topic-specific vocabulary, sentence structure, grammar and conversational French. I am very approachable and friendly and believe that adaptable approaches to teaching should be used to meet the individual's learning aims and make language learning enjoyable!
Contact me with your goals for language learning and I can help to plan how we move towards them!
