Personal Description:

I am a University of Leeds graduate from Cheltenham and studied joint honours Spanish & Chinese with a high 2:1 result. I have over 6 years of teaching experience of large classes, one-to-one tutoring, children, school students and adults.

I have lived in China for over 1.5 years, in both large and small cities, and in Spain twice for over a year in Granada and San Sebastian. In 2014-5 I worked at an official language school in Tolosa, Spain teaching classes of spoken English and also doing a lot of private tutoring. I have worked in various English language schools and also taught Mandarin and Spanish.

I am currently working for a big charity but love to tutor in my spare time. I am passionate about learning and teaching languages and would love to have the opportunity to teach even more.

Please get in contact if you have any questions about me or what I can offer as a tutor.

Tutoring Experience:

2009- I volunteered for 5 months as an English teacher in Zhangzhou City College in the south of China for a class of 40 university students. During this time, I created individual and stimulating lesson plans for my students and independently taught.

2010-2011 Over a period of a year in Shanghai, China, I independently undertook a job as an English tutor, teaching on a one to one basis. I helped my students progress and build on each class. I worked with students on a short and long term basis for up to 4 hours each per week.

2012-2013 I tutored GCSE Mandarin to a year 10 child (I was his only tutor and teacher), and he achieved fast progress along with an A* GCSE grade one year early.

2013-2014 I worked in The Official Language School of Tolosa, in Spain during this year teaching English to students of all ages and levels, independently teaching classes and tailoring classes to create stimulating lessons relevant and true to life.

2014- Teacher at the language school Inlingua (Cheltenham), teaching Japanese and Italian students.

2015-2018 Private tutoring in London of English, Mandarin and Spanish.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that the only easy way to learn a language is to make it fun, so this is my main aim, using interesting and informative texts, games and various techniques whilst keeping the lessons relevant.

I would also tailor the classes to the individual and their personal aims and goals, whether it be grammar, speaking, writing, vocabulary, or colloquial language.

As a language learner myself, I strongly believe that individual mistakes are not what is important but confidence and fluency in talking and writing. I also maintain that as an English native, I can highlight the common mistakes and initial difficulties made in languages such as Mandarin and Spanish which I have made myself.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!
