I am an active, enthusiastic and positive person who enjoys a healthy lifestyle. I have been teaching for 30 years and have lived both in England and in Spain. I am passionate about teaching and learning, healthy living and performing arts as well as Spain and its culture. I love working with all age groups and have many fabulous memories of my work with my students.
As a teacher, tutor and mentor for the past 30 years both in UK and international schools aboard I have a range of experience teaching both children and adults. My passion is believing in yourself and working with an I can approach.
I have tutored up to GCSE Spanish, English and Maths. I have also a vast amount of experience in performing arts having run a very successful group. I prepared my pupils for all levels of LAMDA, up to level 3 and in all aspects (mime, acting, devised drama, speaking in public, reading for performance, verse and prose and musical theatre). I have also prepared pupils for entrance exams for key schools in the UK and for Cambridge first certificate and proficiency.
When it comes to studying I use a variety of methods to help develop memory and to make learning meaningful and fun, including the use of active learning and mind maps. I work hard to ensure lessons cater for the needs of the student and use student feedback and on going assessment to ensure that each lesson caters for the individual needs of each person.
