English (Foreign Language)
I am an experienced teacher of both English at secondary level and English as a Foreign / Additional Language. I am married with three children, only one of whom is still at home. I am a friendly, approachable person, very used to listening to the concerns of teenagers and supporting them. I live in the country and enjoy the outdoor life, particularly walking my two dogs.
I worked for two years teaching English in Nigeria as a VSO. Following this I taught English in a comprehensive secondary school for six years. Subsequently I have taught in Adult Education, focussing on English and Basic Skills, also English as a Foreign Language. Latterly my experience (with EMAS) has been in working with students from other countries who have English as an additional language, teaching them on a one-to-one basis or in small groups, also working with their families and advising teachers in secondary schools. Most recently I have worked as a private tutor, teaching pupils in both the primary and secondary sector who are currently attending school in the UK.
I aim to help students to enjoy both reading and writing and to develop the necessary skills which they need to progress as effective users of the language. I always aim to offer a friendly, supportive approach which encourages students to try their very best to achieve. I also aim to make lessons varied and interesting. I enjoy preparing students for the exams which they are working towards and have accumulated resources which will enable me to do this, including working on past papers.
