CELTA qualified teacher and geography graduate offereing EFL, geography, history and general humanities lessons online.

Methodology

I maintain a very informal approach to teaching, primarily letting the student request help on whatever subject area they are having the most difficulty with. I always addapt my teaching method to most suit the individual in question and then focus on what is the most important subject aspect for the student for the task at hand (passing an exam, general improvement, english pronunciation etc).
I am however able to research and plan a much more structured lesson approach if requested by the student. For EFL my main focus tends to be english pronunciation and general speaking. For geography I am most knowledgeable in the area of physical processes (glaciation, hydrology, environmental change etc).

Experience

I have been giving informal and custom tutoring for EFL and humanities related subjects since I obtained a CELTA two years ago with additional experience teaching larger groups of all ages in person. I also have a degree in physical geography as well as a significant personal interest in all humanities (especialy ancient/medieval history) and sciences. Most recently I have tutored several A level students in theory and exam technique in order to help them acheive good grades in geography A level.

Work Experience:

-Geography Teacher, Etherton Education, Wellington 2018
This position saw me teaching a selection of different foreign language groups with varying ages (12-17) in general geography. Over my month of employment I taught 10 different groups, each receiving one 90 min lesson a week as well as occasionally covering for other staff. As a teacher I was given mostly free reign to teach the students what would perhaps be the most interesting/informative topics for a summer school environment and as such most of my lessons focused on some of the more interesting aspects of physical geography. As before, focus was placed on making the lessons as enjoyable as possible whilst still being informative. Though writing and reading tasks were used, most attention was placed on speaking or creative tasks to help improve English speaking fluency and group skills. Most of my classroom time was spent keeping students engaged with the subject at hand whilst endeavoring to maintain a laid back classroom environment.

-Support Tutor, Richard Huish College, Taunton 2018
This role saw me primarily involved with supporting various foreign language students at the college with any difficulties they may have in their studies as well as additional EFL support. Most of my time was spent providing in lesson support to help various EFL students in a variety of subjects (particularly geography and biology) to aid them in understanding instructions given by the teacher and to help them write/formulate various pieces of work they are presented with. In addition I also gave informal one to one or small group tutoring to some students during their free periods in much the same manner as in my private tutoring sessions.

-Private GCSE/A level/EFL tutoring, 2017-present
In my time between other more formal employment I have been giving private tutoring to a variety of students in various fields (particularly humanities), primarily of secondary school/college age. These have generally been informal arrangements with me visiting the residences of various students in my local area for one on one lessons. Most of these have involved helping students with revision and exam technique for these subjects. In addition I have also given EFL related lessons to various people of all age groups seeking to improve their spoken English via the internet and Skype. All lessons I have given in both situations are usually about an hour long and focus on what the student is interested in learning and are tailored to the students own learning preferences.

-EFL Teacher, Anglo English schools, Exeter 2017:
In this position I was employed as one of several EFL teachers to oversee the development of English skills in mainly intermediate level English speakers of around 16 years of age in a summer camp environment. As such lessons focused on being as engaging and informative as possible with only loose adaptation of course material as a guideline for lesson planning. Focus was particularly given to speaking and pronunciation elements of learning to aid the fluency of the students and to keep such things as grammar and writing to a minimum to keep students engaged. During my month of employment I was required to teach two main groups a day, each receiving two 80 minute lessons (one group in the morning, one in the afternoon) as well as overseeing two shorter 50 min lessons with two other groups in less formal ‘project’ like work. In this students would work in groups to complete a task of their choosing, such as a poster or leaflet. In all matters encouraging student interaction and continual usage of spoken English was given top priority.

-Admin Assistant, Samaritan Ministry, Washington DC USA, 2013:
In this role I was served as the general receptionist to the centre, including organizing the days schedule and answering phones/taking down messages as well as helping any visitors to the centre. Most of the job involved dealing with the homeless and deprived of the greater DC area and working to look at their prospects to find them work or permanent lodging.

-IT voluntary work, ‘Silver Surfers’ Café’, Hemyock, 2012-2013:
This involved helping many of the elderly residents of the village with various IT related problems, such as emails and anti-virus software. This was primarily done at a weekly session, however I also performed more private visitations to the homes of other non-members when a more thorough or ongoing approach was required. A preliminary advertising campaign involving social media, leaflets and posters was also undertaken to spread information about the service.

-Student Host, Discovery Summer, Winchester, 2011:
This role was facilitating the needs of foreign students staying at the summer camp over a period of several weeks, particularly in regards to helping the more senior members organize and set up activities and field trips. During this period I stayed with the visiting students as a similarly aged peer serving primarily to encourage the students to use English at all times and helping with language lessons and pronunciation.

-Kitchen assistant, The Anchor Inn, Cofton 2010:
This involved general kitchen and catering work involving cleaning, food prep, cooking and any other more minor tasks required by the more senior kitchen staff, including experience in the usage of kitchen equipment. Some experience with bar work and waiting.
