English (Foreign Language)
Hi I'm Joanna… I live in Milton Keynes but spend a couple of days a week in Oxfordshire. I have a keen interest in languages and cultures. Learning Spanish has been an interest and a joy to me since I spent time living in Madrid on leaving school.
I am currently a Study Skills Tutor and Student Mentor in Higher Education. I have previously taught Adult Education classes - Spanish Beginners for two years. I worked for six years as a Learning Support Assistant at MK college supporting adults with learning difficulties and disabilities. I also have a wide range of experience of 1:1 English and Spanish tuition.
I am passionate about my subject and this will be communicated through my teaching. I am enthusiastic about sharing my interest in learning languages. I have a creative and flexible approach to teaching, making use of a wide range of resources. I am friendly, very patient and have a good sense of humour. These qualities have enabled me to build up a good rapport with learners in the past.
I can offer tuition in your home or at another location such as your work place. E-mail tuition outside of the set hours can also be arranged at an additional cost.
Additional Languages: Arabic, French, Can speak basic conversational Moroccan Arabic

At the beginning Joanna asked us about our specific needs and we later focused on speaking and improving pronunciation.
Thanks to the lessons with her, we have gained confidence in speaking English, we have learned new phrases and vocabulary. Each meeting was well-planned series of exercises improving our language skills.
It's been fun, enjoyable and very helpful.
We can recommend Joanna as a very talented teacher.
Thank you for your support Agnieszka!
