I am seeking to specialise in Second language learners and specifically those who have learning difficulties as this is my specialism. My tutoring will be easy-paced and non-pressurised with learners dictating the pace and rhythm of their learning. I prefer interactive learning that uses a lot of visual aids and listening and repeat techniques. Some times I will encourage the learner to jump into the 'deep end' of more complex dialogue exercises and then we slowly unpick the bones, so to speak, of any errors as this is an effective way to allow the learner to take ownership of their learning.
I currently within the educational sector in the UK at both Secondary and primary level, specifically within special educational needs learning support. My goal is to enter into teaching English as a foreign language which I am currently studying for a Level 5 TEFL Certification. .
