Personal Description:

I am British nationality, a mother tongue English speaker and experienced language teacher.

Spanish - I teach Spanish at all levels, from beginners to advanced. I teach the language for functional purposes as well as exam preparation. I can teach children and adults.

English as a foreign language - I teach English at all levels, one to one or in small or large groups. I teach both general English and English for special purposes, for example for work or study purposes.

I use a communicative style in my language teaching. This means even at the most basic level my students are using the language to communicate and developing skills of speaking and listening.

Tutoring Experience:

I am a qualified and experienced language teacher working with adults.

I gained the Cambridge English Language Training to Adults (CELTA) qualification in January 2007. Since then I have worked for 3 years as an English teacher, with jobs in Slovakia and Germany. There I taught business English to students in companies, normally on a one to one basis. On the other hand I have also taught groups in an evening class setting. As well as my work overseas I have worked at English summer schools where I taught larger groups of students.

I am now using my knowledge and experience of teaching methods combined with my extensive Spanish background to move into teaching Spanish.

Tutoring Approach:

All students have different needs and learning styles. I have a flexible approach and adapt my teaching methods to students’ circumstances. I can teach all levels, from absolute beginners to those who want to revise grammar for exam purposes. I can help you if you want Spanish simply to get more out of your holiday or if you want to make small talk with Spanish speaking business colleagues. I am a student of languages as well as a teacher so I know how hard learning a language can be. I have the patience to adapt the pace of lessons and to recap points whenever necessary. I also use a mix of activities so students get the chance to speak, listen, read and write in the new language. I aim to provide a learning experience which is both useful and enjoyable and where students will feel a sense of acheivement.
