My name is Lauren and I live in Huddersfield. I have worked as an English and an ESOL teacher for eight years. I love finding out about other people from different communities and helping people learn English from beginners level right up to Post graduate level. In my spare time I like cooking, reading, watching films, going for walks, eating out and exercise classes

Tutoring Experience

I have taught ESOL and English for seven years to adults in Manchester and Huddersfield who speak Arabic, Urdu, Farsi,Spanish, French, Greek, Bengali and a range of other languages from around the world.

I am a qualified primary school teacher and I teach privately and in classroom situations. I have a degree in English Language and a PGCE as well as a Level 5 literacy qualification. I am qualified to teach both ESOL and Literacy to higher education students. I have helped many students pass their Life in the UK tests and City and Guilds Literacy and ESOL qualifications from entry level 1 through to Level 2. I also teach IELTS at all levels.

I teach GCSE English language and literature in a private secondary school and also history up to GCSE level.

Tutoring Approach

I believe in listening to my students and helping them in any areas which they feel they need the most help. I like to use real life examples and teach people things that will be relevant in their work and home life. I think conversational English is very important and I allow my students to talk and ask questions about life in the UK. I also provide real life examples where reading and writing are concerned. Using real life, relevant examples such as application forms, leaflets and books to help learners to develop real and accurate usage of written English and understand different types of text that they will see often. Most importantly I show my student's their progress and celebrate their successes whilst continuously developing any areas which they may struggle with.
