ESOL Tutor (Native English Speaker) with 12 years experience offering Tuition in Stoke-on-Trent area.

Methodology

I have a coaching approach to tutoring and am always very positive and encouraging. Students have commented that I know how to motivate them to improve and build language skills. It is important to teach confidence so that students feel relaxed and unafraid about using language. A key strength for my English tuition or coaching is an ability to form good working relationships with learners or clients built on mutual trust and rapport. I am flexible and can adapt and tailor the lessons to what students require. Students may want to practise conversational English on a range of topics or improve pronunciation and build vocabulary related to their career or work. I can help students working towards ESOl or other exams or improve their IELTS score. I use a variety of materials including online resources and music or film clips, text books, magazines, newspapers and information related to study or career.

Background

I have a passion for teaching and am a creative, experienced English Native tutor and trainer. I graduated with a 2:1 Joint Honours Degree in English and Psychology from Keele University in 1990 and am a qualified Adult Education tutor. I began my career working in the NHS as a psychologist helping individuals and running groups on confidence-building and stress management and now offer a private life coaching service. I also worked for several years mentoring and tutoring university and college students. A key strength for my English tuition or coaching is an ability to form good working relationships with learners or clients built on mutual trust and rapport. I have taught at English Language summer schools, based at Staffordshire University, Keele University, Oxford Brookes University and South Cheshire College, every year since 2005. I have overseen placement tests in written and oral skills that students sit on arrival to the UK, in order to assign them into one of 4 levels from elementary to upper intermediate and have conducted end of course tests. In class the focus is on improving oral fluency and confidence in speaking as well as written work. Students learn through doing a variety of projects, role play activities and presentations. I offer English tuition to post graduate International students and professionals either living and working in the UK (doctors, pharmacists, business people and journalists) or via skype. I have taught Adult ESOL classes at college where I had a 98% pass rate for learners taking entry level ESOL exams.
