I offer language tuition to all ages and at the following levels: ESL, A1-C2; French, beginners-advanced; Spanish, beginners-intermediate; German, beginners. I also offer GSCE tuition in English Language and Literature, as this was one of my A-level subjects. I have also competed Grade 8 Level in Speaking Verse and Prose and Acting with LAMDA, London Academy for Music and Dramatic Art and so can offer beginners lessons in these areas.
My ideal 60 minute lesson plans for individual students involves a 5-10 minute warmer, where we will perform a relatively interactive lesson to warm up the brain and get interested in the current topic. This also allows me to judge the student's current level. If there is any outstanding homework, we will go over that either after the warmer or at the end of the lesson, depending on how it relates to the week's topic. The following 10-15 minutes is where we will do an exercise where something is taught- either grammar or vocabulary- and then the following 15-20 minutes will be more focused on student participation and demonstrating their grasp of the new topic. The remaining time will be a recap on what has been learned and the goals or homework for the following week will be set.
I adapt my style of teaching to each individual's level, interests, requirements, and learning style. This may mean that I use flashcards, objects, reading materials, or simply the voice. If students are more interested in a certain topic or theme, I will try to incorporate that into the lesson.
I have a masters in Translation and Interpreting from the University of Surrey and I graduated in French and Spanish from the University of Stirling. I worked as an Au Pair in Italy, where I taught English to children ages 8-10. I then went to teach high school students 14-20 in France for a year with the British Council. I am a TEFL Level 5 accredited teacher and worked in a Summer school in Canterbury Christ Church University. I have great experience in creating fun lessons to make learning easier and enjoyable.
