Personal Description:

I'm 31 years old (2016) and I've been a teacher around London and then Birmingahm before I left the profession. I am passionate about teaching and I'm not yet ready to fully give it up - I have been tutoring since 2013 and will carry on providing help where and when I can - I currenty work for the Probation Service full time, as an administrator.
I did my BA degree in French and did some travelling before I did my teacher training. I lived in Quebec for a year as part of my degree.

Tutoring Experience:

I love teaching and have taught English as an Additional Langauge in Canada, Japan and Romania (as a volunteer). In Japan, I taught English in the French International School and parallel to that I was giving private English tuition to adults mainly.
In Canada, I taught English as a Language Assistant with the British Council in rural Quebec.

I did my teacher training in Southampton and Portsmouth and qualified obtaining QTS status. In 2013, I was fully qualified after passing my induction year. I taught for three years before deciding that tha teaching profession on a full-time basis wasn't for me.

Tutoring Approach:

I take things step by step and listen to the needs of my students rather than have a personal agenda. I am also very patient and go with the student's pace - that way, success is more achievable!
I also pitch the sessions at their level gently but gently nudge them to achieve their personal best.
