English (Foreign Language)
I am a French and Spanish graduate with experience of living in both countries. I try to use cultural context as a way of keeping my sessions relevant and engaging, even when it comes to grammar practice.
Away from teaching, I like to keep fit and I am hoping to pursue my interest in writing to a greater degree over the year ahead.
I spent the 2012/13 academic year teaching English in two Madrid secondary schools. During this posting, I taught both large classes and smaller groups of 12-16 year olds, as well as preparing groups of teachers for a bilingual proficiency exam.
Since my return to the UK, I have taught English in residential summer schools and offered EFL, French and Spanish classes on a freelance basis.
My approach to tutoring is very much based on the requirements of the individual. Before we get going, I will carry out a full needs analysis to identify any fundamental gaps in knowledge before devising a strategy to close the gaps. We will work together to establish just what kind of learner you are and proceed on that basis.
I work independently to get up to speed with the requirements of any syllabus that needs to be followed for the all important public examinations.
