I have just recently graduated from the University of Bath where I studied French and Spanish. I am a laid back teacher who can get along with students and make learning fun. I have been through the learning process myself so I know what works and what doesn't.
I am just starting up as a tutor in the UK but I have experience teaching children abroad. From 2015-16 I spent 7 months in Ecuador where I helped teach children of all ages at a rural school. I also have experience teaching in France, I worked as an au pair there in the summer of 2014.
