English (Foreign Language)
I am a qualified Modern Foreign Languages teacher (French and Spanish) and I also have a degree in French from the University of Sheffield. I am passionate about teaching as I believe it is one of the most rewarding professions. I fully embrace teaching French and Spanish whilst at the same time inspiring people and guiding them into becoming productive citizens.
I am passionate about teaching/tutoring languages as I believe it has limitless scope and it gives an insight into other cultures and lifestyles.
I have a caring and patient attitude when it comes to teaching. I always encourage my tutees or pupils to work hard in order to reap the benefits they deserve.
I have been teaching Modern Languages for three years and currently teach French at primary level in a boys preparatory school in South London.
I am a qualified Modern Foreign Languages teacher (QTS) with a postgraduate degree in Secondary Education from Oxford Brookes University. As part of my degree, I worked in the two secondary schools teaching French and Spanish to pupils aged 11-16 years old. I also have experience of teaching pupils French aged 16-18 years old.
Furthermore, I have experience in teaching English as a foreign language in France as an English Language Assistant. I worked for the British Council in my third year of my undergraduate degree. I also taught 'Business' English to a qualified French professional in Paris.
I have prior tutoring experience, tutoring French at beginner and intermediate levels.
With my recent teaching experience, I have the pedagogical skills to tailor my tutoring approach in order to cater to the learning needs of the tutee. I discuss with the tutees what their requirements are for their tuition and create personalised tutoring sessions in both written and oral French/Spanish. My teaching experience combined with my tutoring experience, gives me the knowledge and skills to provide tuition lessons which are focused on individual learning.
