Personal Description:

I am young, enthusiastic teacher who qualified in June 2009. At secondary school I studied French and German to Advanced Higher level coupled with a year of Spanish and a year of Russian. I then went on to study an MA (Hons) degree in Applied Languages and Translation (French & German) at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh for 4 years which included 2 years of studying Spanish as an elective subject. My third year there involved a year abroad where I spent 5 months studying at Karl Franzens Universität in Graz in Austria and also 5 months studying at Université Stendhal in Grenoble in France. After I graduated, I went on to complete a Postgraduate Diploma in Education at Strathclyde University which included 2 placements in schools in Edinburgh- The Royal High School and Tynecastle High School. Finally, I completed my probation year at Buckie High School in Moray in 2010 then continued to work in the school afterwards. I then taught German, French and Spanish at Elgin Academy in Moray and completed a degree in Spanish for Teachers by Distance Learning via Dundee University as well as my GTCS registration in Spanish whilst working there. I spent 7 weeks studying at Colegio Internacional in Alicante 6 hours a day 5 days a week during my summer holidays in order to gain my residency and loved it. I would highly recommend the school for those wanting to learn Spanish in Spain. I recently taught an evening Beginners Spanish Conversation course at Macduff College as well. I now work as a Support for Learning teacher at Banff Academy.

Tutoring Experience:

I am currently a Support for Learning teacher at Banff Academy. From January 2011 until December 2014 I was a Modern Languages teacher (French, German & Spanish) at Elgin Academy in Moray. I previously worked as a Modern Languages teacher (German & French) at Buckie High School from August 2009- December 2010. As part of my current job, I quite often work with small groups and individuals to support their learning. As a language teacher I frequently ran lunchtime and after school revision/ catch up sessions for pupils.

In 2010, I tutored Harry to help him boost his confidence and grades in his GSCEs whilst he was home on holiday from boarding school. He was pleased when he achieved an A*.

In 2009, after completing my post grad in teaching I tutored an S1 pupil in French in Edinburgh.

In 2006, whilst on my year abroad, I taught English to the children of the family whom I lived with in Austria.

Tutoring Approach:

I thoroughly enjoy teaching and I consider myself to have all the positive qualities which are sought after in a tutor. I am not only friendly and approachable but also enthusiastic, encouraging and motivating. Above all, I am patient and relaxed. My lessons are well structured and focused to suit the tutee(s) but most importantly stress-free and enjoyable.
