Personal Description:

My name is Jorik and I'm 28. I have four years experience as a personal tutor, teaching assistant with GCSE/A-level students and in voluntary positions at two universities. I am currently working for an MA in Comparative Literature (French and German) at University College London. I also hold a first class honours degree in English from the University of Amsterdam, during which I studied for a year at the University of Sussex, on a scholarship. I'm a native speaker of English and Dutch and I have MA-level French and German as well as a good level of Spanish. In the autumn, I will be training as a teacher in French and German.

Tutoring Experience:

I have four years' experience as a personal tutor, specialising in Modern Foreign Languages and EFL, allthough I have also taught History, Geography, Philosophy & Critical Thinking and Drama. I have also frequently supervised creative writing sessions and theatre and stand-up comedy workshops as well as individual voice coaching sessions. I am preparing to start a PGCE in MFL (French and German) in September 2016.

Tutoring Approach:

From my experience, teaching is about communication, empathy and stimulating creativity. To learn a language is to connect with an aspect of yourself you were previously unaware of, opening yourself up to new ways of thinking, cultures and histories. Everyone can learn any language, as long as they care. Geography, History, Philosophy and Drama are always about empathising with another person or persons in their context, from their perspective. That is one of the reasons doing research on these topics is so engrossing: it is like getting to know someone intimately. I hope to communicate this fascination to my students every day of my working life.
