Personal Description:

I am an experienced and well qualified Language teacher of Literacy, ESOL (teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), EFL and of Italian, with a real passion for teaching and for my subjects. I have taught most age groups and although much of my teaching has been with students aged 16 and above, I enjoy working with all ages. In all of my classes, I do my utmost to enable my learners to achieve their goals through a blend of patience, persistence and total commitment.
I'm calm, outgoing person with an Anglo-Italian background. Outside teaching, I enjoy social dance, creative writing, swimming and personal development. To avoid disappointment, although I have some weekend availability, Sundays are double time. Also, I prefer tutoring in a dog-free, smoke free environment. Please indicate preferred days and times on initial contact, thank you. Also available for online tutoring.

Tutoring Experience:

I have 15 years’ experience of teaching English (Literacy, EFL and ESOL) from KS1 to Level 2, equivalent to GCSE and 3 years’ experience of teaching Italian and French. My degree is in French and Italian. During my career, I’ve served as lecturer or sessional lecturer at 3 Further Education establishments, been a Class Assistant for **Contact Detail Removed** Educational, an ALS tutor (additional learning support) and befriender for students with special educational needs. I have also mentored new teachers, and co-designed, piloted and delivered an ESOL course for ‘Keeping Up with the Children’, teaching activities to parents that they can do with their children to help them to learn English, while supporting their children’s Literacy skills.
I have taught in three further education institutions in the UK, and a small number of private language schools abroad. I have planned and delivered tailor-made courses.
Summing-up, I have a successful record of Entry level ESOL, Literacy, Italian and French; Level 1 and 2 Literacy and ESOL, and proven ability (from records of formal graded observed lessons) of consistently high levels of classroom performance.

Tutoring Approach:

I would never subscribe to ONE approach to teaching as individuals’ needs and learning styles are so diverse. I always aim to be as flexible as possible in course planning and in adapting my methodology and materials to the needs and ability of the individual learner. In my classes, a key priority is to achieve a balance of fun and serious learning, in a safe learning environment. At any level, I endeavour to make maximum use of whichever language is studied, so learners are constantly hearing the language being taught, and participating actively. My classes are always, therefore, highly interactive, which enables my learners to make steady, sometimes extremely rapid, progress.
I make use of a number of published courses and home-produced resources, and use Information Technology extensively in producing materials. Finally, I am keen to work with motivated, individual learners to deliver targeted language or literacy tuition.
