Experienced former teacher, now Classical Master student, offering English lessons in Edinburgh.

Methodology

My teaching in the past has been aimed at passing the internationally recognised Common European Framework of Languages, GCSEs and A-Levels. My technique in engaging with students is to tailor each lesson plan according to them as an individual as far as is possible. I am aware of the many different ways in which students learn and I aim to not only appeal to their interest, but to teach in a manner which is the most effective for them.

Background

I am a current Masters student with background in both teaching English as a foreign language and tutoring English students in literature on a one-on-one basis. I have been teaching for two years and have mainly been working in mixed ability classes, aged 6-16, with additional one-on-one support.

Previous Employment

Charity: The English Heritage Trust (Audley End House)
Dates: 24/04/18-04/09/19 (seasonal)
Position: Historic Property Steward
Responsibilities: My role within English Heritage was incredibly versatile and public orientated. As a room steward it was my task to deliver the history of the house in a manner which was interesting and informative for all members of the public, with a large proportion being children. This is particularly true of our event days with many children of all ages being offered range of activities. I worked in many areas of the site s a house steward, shop floor assistant and selling admissions.

Business: CAPS Home to Home
Dates: 28/09/18-21/06/19
Position: Assistant teacher
Responsibilities: My daily tasks included managing classrooms from the ages of 6-16, planning lessons, running speaking exams and leading classes of English, Science and Communication. Furthermore, I worked as a private tutor in this time aiming at teaching both the English language and culture. Due to this role I am at ease running multiple activities for children and able to multitask effectively.

Institution: The University of Exeter
Dates: 5/06/17-29/06/17
Position: Research Intern
Responsibilities: Within this internship I was tasked with the daily running of a visitor centre for a local excavation. This included leading members of the public around the exhibitions and giving daily talks on the finds and the implications within scholarship. Furthermore, on multiple occasions I ran workshops for local primary schools, aiming to give them a better understanding of their local history. These workshops featured talks on multiple subjects as well as a range of interactive activities to maintain the interest of the children.

Skills and Experience

I am a current student at the University of Edinburgh working towards my Masters in Classical Art and Archaeology.

I have a variety of teaching experiences in teaching English, Spanish and history. I have have taught large mixed ability classes as well as one-on-one tutoring. Using a variety of techniques methodologies I have been able to ensure that my lessons are always well planned, interactive and memorable. Furthermore, I am a qualified TEFL teacher having completed the 140 hour course with a specialisation in the classroom experience and the advanced course with over a year of experience.

When working as a foreign language teacher I worked increasingly independently and became progressively more capable of working effectively when left to plan and deliver my own lessons. More recently, in my time as a property steward, I worked as a part of a large team, aiming at improving visitor learning experiences. I am more than capable of working in both capacities and I am able to collaborate with others to ensure that each individual child’s needs are being fully met.
