« My name is Laura. I am from Holland and I have taken private lessons with Sam few months ago. I strongly recommend Samuel as a very good teacher. He is young but very experienced, he always works seriously and does his best to understand what are the weak and strong points of his students. Therefore, He knows what is the best method suitable for each student. Moreover, deeply in his heart, he always focuses on how to help his students speak fluently and confidently in English. I am very proud to recommend Sam as a very high level English teacher and I am confident to say that every lesson with Sam is worthwhile. »

English and Spanish tuition in Liverpool and surrounding areas with qualified (MA, BA hons) and experienced teacher

Methodology

I am a 30 year old male and a qualified teacher with over six years of diverse teaching experience. Having studied languages myself in an academic setting, I understand the individual needs of learning and the immense pleasure that can be drawn from studying languages. My lessons begin with a diagnostic approach and I then prepare classes and course for individual students or small groups. I utilise a range of different texts including video, news articles, radio programs and pod casts to ensure that students are subject to a diverse array of different grammatical and lexical items. As a teacher I believe it is my duty to enthuse students with the subjects I am teaching by demonstrating its everyday use outside of the classroom and showing how I have benefited personally from studying languages through my extensive travelling and living abroad and recent film and education projects I have been involved in.

Experience

I have over six years teaching experience both abroad and in the UK. Predominantly I have taught English and Spanish language but I have also taught literature and skills course as well as being involved in teaching materials development projects and teacher training. My varied lessons mean that students leave with a solid theoretical base for further study, tips and experience for exams and a means to find interesting and engaging materials themselves for further study at a later date. I have taught all levels from primary to tertiary education and in particular I have focused on exams-prep courses such as GCSE, AS and A-levels, IELTS, TOEFL and the Cambridge examinations. My diverse experience has meant that over the years I have developed a repertoire of adaptable teaching materials which have been very effective as they are selected to compliment students' individual learning styles and objectives.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £15/h

Details
