Personal Description:

I'm 28 years old and I've been Supply Teaching around London and then Birmingahm over the past 2 years. I recently worked at Carterhatch Infants School in Enfield as a Reception teacher for the past academic year. I love reading, travelling and cooking! I also go to the cinema when I have time and attend gigs and classical music concerts when I have the opportunity - music is a great passion of mine and it inspires me a lot.
The countries I have visited have all been great but my favourites were Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Israel/Palestine.
I was born in England but lived in Mauritius for 7 years of my life. Therefore, I can speak Creole, English and some Urdu. I am fluent in French which is something that comes in very handy when abroad in France!

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 am currently teaching as a supply teacher waiting to find a permanent job. I have taught French to a small group of key stage 2 children before - it was my first teaching job and it was there that I realised I had the potential to become a teacher! As mentioned above, I was recently a Reception teacher which I thoroughly loved and enjoyed!

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.
