English language and linguistics Kingston University graduate offering English lessons to speakers of other languages

Methodology

Usually, my lessons are organised in a way that allows the student to practice language listening, writing, reading and speaking skills. However, I always adapt my methodology to the individual student's needs, and focus on the student's area of interest. As a second-language learner of English, I have been through the process of foreign language learning, so I can empathise with my student's experience.
I love teaching English using interactive methods, such as conversation, games or movie clips, and I am highly receptive to the student's learning methodology preferences.

Experience

I am a Kingston University graduate in English Language and Linguistics with English Literature who loves tutoring in English, and looks forward to becoming an English teacher in the future.
I have previously tutored native Italian speakers in English language, as well as some native English speakers in English literature. Moreover, I was promoted as Tutor Coordinator by the charity I was volunteering for, so I now have experience in managing other tutors. I am really enthusiastic about the English language (especially phonetics), and I believe I possess the right attributes to provide fun, fruitful and enriching tutoring sessions.

PERSONAL PROFILE
An enthusiastic student of speech and language therapy at UCL, a graduate in English Language and Linguistics with English Literature at Kingston University London, and a passionate Notetaker and Support Worker for Equality Enterprise Ltd. My previous academic course helped me to improve my spoken and written communication skills, and to develop my critical thinking, by introducing me to new challenging literary theories. I find it beneficial to apply these skills to my job as a support worker and notetaker where I have the opportunity to deliver excellent customer service and high-standard notes. I am a flexible individual who learns fast and is ready for new challenges.

EDUCATION
MSc Speech and Language Sciences, University College London, August 2019 – Present
I am currently studying to become a Speech and Language Therapist at UCL. This degree is training me to be ready to support the communication, voice and feeding needs of clients across the whole life span. I believe this healthcare profession will be very rewarding, as I love and take pride in supporting people to improve their quality of life.

BA (Hons) English Language and Linguistics with English Literature with First Class, Kingston University, September 2016 – June 2019
Thanks to this degree, I have acquired valuable verbal and written communication skills as well as organisational skills, through completing a variety of academic individual and group assessments and assignments. My time at Kingston University has been certainly bettered by the exposure that I had to different cultures with which students from all over the world enrich the university setting. Not only did my time at Kingston University give me important academic skills, but also I enlarged my professional experience through different volunteering and work opportunities. Also, this degree gave me the knowledge to progress in my academic and professional career as a Speech and Language Therapist.

Electronic Notetaking to Support Deaf and Disabled People, Note-Able Notetakers, OCN London, May 2018 – September 2018
This course enabled me to develop my communication skills and interpersonal skills, through different assessments and practical activities. I am now more confident to communicate efficiently with clients which might have different disabilities and provide the best support to them. I am now a certified notetaker and support worker, who is part of the disability support team at Kingston University.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE
Student Support Worker and Notetaker, Equality Enterprise Ltd., Kingston upon Thames, UK, September 2017 – present
My job consists in providing different types of support to disabled students at Kingston University, such as campus support and notetaking support. Thanks to this job, I have now more experience in working with people with physical disabilities, as well as with people with mental health conditions. Therefore, not only did my communication, customer service, and time management skills improve, but also I learnt how to be proactive in unexpected situations. Finally, I took pride in handing in excellent notes to the students, and being in contact with people made me enjoy this job even more.

Communication Support Volunteer, the Stroke Association, London (Croydon Communication Support Service group), UK, May 2018 – August 2019
My job consisted in supporting the stroke survivors’ communication needs through different interactive activities, such as conversation, drawing, activities supported by visual aids, general discussions and debates. This volunteering opportunity allowed me to develop my verbal and non-verbal communication skills, empathy and listening skills by understanding and providing the best focused tasks which can support each client’s communication needs.

Tutors Coordinator Volunteer, Kingston Hub, Kingston University, Kingston upon Thames, UK, June 2017- June 2018.
After my experience as an English Literature tutor, I was promoted as Tutors Coordinator. Thanks to this job, I have had the chance to prepare volunteers for their first experience in delivering tutoring sessions on their subjects, in high schools and colleges around London. From this experience, my leadership, problem-solving and interpersonal skills developed, and I am now more confident to communicate successfully with my team and provide solutions to tackle educational inequality.

English Literature Volunteer Tutor, St. Michael’s Catholic College, London, UK, January 2017 – June 2017
Being dedicated to volunteering and enthusiastic about the subject which I taught were the essential requisites to succeed in this project. To help my tutees, I acknowledged the diversity of their learning methods, and I adapted my teaching technique to their requirements. The greatest satisfaction that I had from this job was the gradual improvement of my students in a subject they were previously struggling with. Of course, this project required time, but the sense of fulfilment at the end of each session always made up for physical tiredness.
