English teacher with over 500 hours' of experience teaching EFL. Available in Edinburgh and surrounding areas.

Methodology

I'm an experienced and engaging teacher who takes a real interest in every student, to make sure they have the best learning experience possible.

I have taught all levels, from those with no knowledge of English to advanced/expert students. Although my experience is primarily with adult (18 - 80 years old) learners, I have also taught young children and teenagers.

My teaching methodology is to teach one specific grammar point, with a follow-up practice hour. I find this consolidates learning effectively.

My lessons are structured with plenty of time for student practice. Student talking time is super important! I generally follow the introduction, grammar point, practice method. However, I will adapt from student to student based on needs.

Follow up lessons are designed to consolidate the language learned, with emphasis on revision through speaking and focused tasks.

Everyone is individual, so I like to tailor my lessons - no cookie-cutter approach here! If you are interested in a specific subject (for example, Stranger Things!) or you are working towards gaining employment in hospitality, I will make sure you learn in a useful manner (interesting and exciting!) to you!

If you have any questions, please send me a message and I'll be happy to answer them!

Experience

I am a mother-tongue English speaker with a TEFL qualification with over 500 hours of experience. I lived in Naples for 18 months and whilst there I worked at My English School teaching a wide range of levels and ages.

I have experience teaching individual and group lessons, covering a wide range of subjects.

I've taught specific subjects including English for medical, business, marketing, and hospitality.

I'm super encouraging and provide positive and constructive verbal and gestural feedback throughout lessons, with consolidated written feedback post-lesson.

I have tutored and helped my students pass English exams (Cambridge and IELTS), and provided feedback and coaching on CVs, cover letters and interviews.

In student satisfaction surveys, I scored on average between 90 - 100%.

I'm kind, experienced and ready to help you get to grips with English!

I have had the pleasure to be a Kirsty's student for 2 years where she's been teaching me lot of things about English, specially how to have a real conversation because grammar is important, but only making conversation you have the opportunity to improve your English skills. Kirsty is prepared, kind, so nice, she's able to involve you in every kind of subject and you feel free to speak with her and don't be afraid about mistakes, because with her smile she's ready to correct you. Kirsty is the right choice for learning and improving your english so enjoy english with her!!!

Francesca

I’ve been studying English since I was 6 years old and Kirsty is the best teacher I’ve ever had. She is the sweetest! Anyone Would Be Lucky To Have her as a teacher.
