I fill my lessons with full language immersion. Lessons can be taught in French and I will incorporate my knowledge of French culture. I am enthusiastic and full of energy, and I aim to pass on my passion for languages during my lessons

Associazione Culturale Linguistica Educational – English Tutor
In 2018 I spent two months working as an English Tutor at language camps for primary school children in Italy. For the first two weeks I completed training in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL): a qualification accredited by the Italian Ministry of Education and the World TEFL Accrediting Committee. I then travelled to a different primary school every week to teach English at a language summer camp, and I was responsible for planning lessons as well as evaluating students’ level of English based on the European framework of Reference for Languages.
Cumberland Building Society – Branch Assistant
2016 – ongoing
My role as Branch Assistant has involved providing financial services for customers at the counter of the Building Society, as well as answering queries over the phone. In terms of sales, I consistently meet targets and expectations set by my employer; my confidence in selling and promoting products has grown especially after attending numerous training days. These training courses include topics such as ‘Style and Tone of Voice’ and ‘Communication with Customers’. At times I have dealt with complex and sensitive situations (for example bereavement), which mean that I have an increased understanding of professionalism and I know to maintain confidentiality throughout my work in high pressure environments.
Horti di Veio – Sales Assistant
Working abroad at a garden centre not only improved my level of Italian and my communication skills in general, but also made me realise that I thrive working in international environments. I am incredibly enthused by intercultural interactions, and using different languages at work was as exciting as it was challenging. My willingness to learn allowed me to quickly teach myself the technical and scientific selling points of agricultural products in Italian, and this experience, for me, demonstrated my self-motivation, hard-working nature and independence.
