English (Foreign Language)
I have recently completed my CELTA (South Thames College). I have a degree in English Literature (2:1).
I am based in Putney (born and raised) and have prior teaching experience.
While living in Krakow (6 months) I worked for the company "Open Minds" where I taught adults (small groups of 4-5) at intermediate/upper intermediate level.
I then worked for a language school in Bournemouth (Union Language School) for almost 4 months on a full time basis. I taught adults and children (diverse range of nationalities) across all levels from beginner to advance.
Finally, I have worked for the company "International Quest" over the summer period, teaching Italian teenagers at Greenwich University. Again, I taught a diverse range of levels, and was able to use interactive white boards for the first time during my classes which was a great learning experience.
After my degree I decided at the time I wanted to become a primary school teacher, so I worked in a private primary school (Prospect House School) for a year as a teaching assistant. However, during this time I decided that I wanted to pursue a career in TEFL thus decided to take the CELTA.
I am an extremely motivated individual, who genuinely has a passion for teaching. I am a very easy going person, friendly and respectful to others.
I also currently tutor 5 students each for 2 hours per class, 10 hours per week for the last 6 months.
Depends on the learner. But I generally take on more of a dynamic approach, focusing on the learners weaknesses. I like to do a variety of activities to keep things fresh, interesting and stimulating for the learner in a relaxed environment.
