Information About Nicola - Bristol tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Nicola:
My name is Nicola and I have recently moved to the Bristol area. I am a qualified secondary teacher and I am passionate about language learning. Not only does speaking another language open doors in education and the world of work, but it also broadens horizons in terms of embracing new cultures, meeting new people and travel - all things I love to do! I grew up in Gloucestershire, but have spent time living in a town called Kempten-im-Allgäu in southern Germany. I am proud of my slightly obscure joint-honours degree of Biology and German, and it is testament to my teachers at school and how they made me want to develop my knowledge in their subjects further because of their fun, interactive lessons and their passion for their respective subjects.
I am a qualified secondary teacher and have been teaching in a school in the West Midlands for the past four years. I have experience of teaching French up to GCSE and German all the way up to A level. I am comfortable teaching all exam syllabuses, however it is AQA that I have worked most closely with, in developing their new specifications. I have also completed teaching placements and long-term cover at two grammar schools in Gloucestershire. I have a wide range of resources, including textbooks and grammar workbooks, worksheets, interactive games and access to online language learning resources. I also have my CertTESOL so am qualified to teach English to speakers of other languages.
I believe strongly in personalised learning to get the best out of my students. I will tailor sessions to the needs of my student, whether that be working towards a particular assessment, building confidence in speaking or writing skills, or simply improving in a certain subject. I aim to inspire my students by creating fun and engaging sessions that are memorable, as I feel that this gets the best results.
