My teaching method is based on building confidence and making sure the student realises their potential. I believe that once these barriers are down learning a new language or analysing our own is a lot easier! One of the approaches I often use is a blended learning approach, whereby students use online resources such as videos and articles and then we strengthen their knowledge of topics they have learnt through putting it in to practice in a real life situation. We have discussions, do translation exercises and make sure that they aren't just memorising but really understanding the language used.
Hi I'm Jessica and I have six years of tutoring experience in English as A Foreign Language, Spanish and English Language (GCSE and A Level). I have tutored in the UK, Spain and Colombia and have taught English at GCSE level in a high school in Medellin, Colombia.
Having studied German, Spanish and Portuguese at the University of Nottingham, I have always had an affinity for languages and have moved around the world thanks to these skills. I believe that language opens doors and helps you to understand a new culture. I would be happy to help primary, secondary and college students with their confidence and preparation for exams. I also have experience tutoring adults who want to pick up a new language. Please get in touch for more info!
