English (Foreign Language)
A graduate in European Studies, I spent 5 years living and working in France and am a regular visitor to Spain. I used to live and work in London in bilingual secretarial roles and moved to Essex a few years ago.
I undertook secondary teacher training with a view to teaching languages in schools. I soon realised that I much prefer teaching one to one.
I have now taught French and Spanish in several different secondary school academies.
In the past I have taught EAL on a on-to-one and small group basis to both adults and children.
I have also coached adults and children in the fitness and leisure sector.
I enjoy learning languages and teaching to all ages. I mostly enjoy teaching adults and students who are motivated to learn, however my learners level or ability is of no consequence to me as I am very patient and find reward in my learners small progressions as much as the bigger ones.
I find teaching one-to-one particularly rewarding as it is easier to focus on the individual's learning rather than on managing the group.
I feel that language teaching necessarily involves teaching an element of the foreign culture too. For example I often use music and culture to try to inspire students and I always try to make the topics relevant to the individual.
