1st class Newcastle University Modern Languages (French & Spanish) Graduate in London, current Masters student at City

Methodology

My teaching method depends on the level of language ability:

- For both child and adult beginners language students, I think it's most important to first learn the sounds of the language. This was ignored in my own language classes growing up, and is incredibly important. I use videos and songs to help the student understand different vowel and syllable sound nuances. I also try to speak in the subject language throughout our lessons, even if that means speaking very slowly and repeating in English if necessary. I will pick one topic every week, and the student can definitely request specific topics (directions, fashion, food, shopping, movies).

- For GCSE language students, I follow the curriculum and adjust my classes depending on the student's strengths/ areas they need to work on. I will help them with any grammar and help them understand their workload and homework. I make sure that students come up with their own answers. I also will speak in the subject language throughout the class, going as slowly as needed, and translating where appropriate.

- For conversational classes - each week we will pick a topic the student is interested in, depending on their linguistic level. I do not limit the student to basics, I am happy to talk about whatever the student is interested in. Examples include: Peruvian food, Brexit (!), classic french movies. Again depending on level, I will print out articles/ pictures on the topic for the student to read beforehand which we can discuss in the lesson.

Experience

I also am a part-time journalist and have worked as a Cultural Editor for my student newspaper, so I can help proof-read essays and English work.
I have also taught English conversation classes during my Year Abroad in Latin America for non-natives.

GENERAL LANGUAGE/ CULTURE - Having lived in South America and France, I also love to help the student understand the cultures of these places, showing pictures, and even bringing in examples of cuisine and cultural activities.
