Information About Shane - Swansea tutor
I am currently a second year student at Swansea University studying for a BA in German.
I am extremely passionate about language learning and after receiving a scholarship from the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) to live and study in Munich in the summer of 2011, I feel confident enough to motivate students in their own 'language journey'. Furthermore, I am currently preparing for my year abroad in Germany for the 2012/2013 academic year where I will be teaching English as a foreign language in a secondary school.
In addition to this, I am a Student Language Ambassador for 'Routes Into Languages Cymru' where I have been trained in all aspects of motivating students to study a language.
In the past, I have mentored primary school students (aged 7 - 10) in order to improve their reading and writing skills in English so teaching comes naturally to me!
I am entirely flexible and I am always willing to adapt to the students style of learning - be it via games, using and discussing the most up to date material from authentic sources or even just sitting down and discussing a grammar point the student doesn't understand. I always place emphasis on students developing their proficiency in the four key areas of language learning: Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing.
