- Friendly and personal approach, getting to know the students individually and catering my materials and resources to their personal needs and interests.
Here's an idea of how it may go:
Following the completion of an assessment test I will work closely with the student in conversation to reach an understanding of their confidence, pronunciation, fluency, understanding and vocabulary. Through the use of authentic and engaging forms of media along side some personally developed materials I hope to bridge the gap between academic learning in the classroom to confident reproduction and understanding of the language in the outside world.
The course will use multiple forms of authentic English media, including print, video and audio. Materials are constantly adapted and kept up to date in order to help generate interest, enthusiasm and critical thinking in the language rather than focusing purely on rules and repetitions.
You will engage 1 on 1 with a native English speaker who will aid your conversation practice. The course will be tailored to the students interests and needs with fixed elements of pronunciation practice and familiarisation with common phrases and idioms which facilitate smooth communication with English natives.
Throughout my academic journey I found working closely with other students an essential and greatly enriching aspect of the learning process. From an early age I was eager to fulfil tutoring roles in order to aid the literacy of younger students. This nature propelled me to keep studying and supporting others in their learning journeys.
In 2017, during my university studies, I threw myself headfirst into the teaching of English as a second language (ESL) online. I began holding Skype lessons for The Enderby Academy, delivering material and English conversation practice. Following this in 2018 I relocated to Italy for a period of 5 months, and a later period of 3 months, in which I provided face to face lessons alongside the Skype lessons. This was a truly enriching time for me wherein I developed my confidence, grew my passion and began to develop my own teaching style and materials.
I worked alongside experienced English teachers and gained experience of teaching English to professionals within a business setting. I worked one-on-one with employees in a pharmaceutical company and in class settings of a fashion design and manufacturing company.
Throughout my experience I have seen students flourish, developing their confidence and communication in the English language - as well as going on to pass tests such as the IELTS, SATS and TEOFL.
Perfect! Amy is an extraordinary teacher. We have been studying conversations for a month now and it is nothing like my regular boring English class at school. I already started getting compliments at work about how much my English improved lately. Amy is confident, dedicated, she knows her material very well, and takes teaching seriously. Intuitively she recognised my shortcomings early and molded the direction of my education accordingly, exactly what I needed.
I would recommend Amy to anybody who is seeking to increase his/her communication skills with natives, speak English confidently at work and also in social life.
Amy is a very good tutor, she has really big strength for teaching, She is humble and patient, thanks to her I have learned a lot of words and way to pronounce some really tricky words. I’m really glad I have had her as a tutor, I advise you all to consider her in case you want to learn or improve your English
