Friendly, experienced English tutor (CELTA, MA Cantab) offering tailor-made lessons in London

Methodology

As a language student myself learning Spanish, I know how tricky it can be to acheive that goal of fluency!

I've found that the best way to bring out and build on your language skills is through a communicative, "guided discovery" approach. In my lessons, I strive to:

- Create a relaxed, informal space where questions are encouraged and conversation flows
- Elicit vocabulary and concepts from my students as much as possible instead of just giving them the answers
- Maximise the student's talking time
- Encourage peer-to-peer error correction (if teaching groups)
- Drill pronunciation of tricky words.

I'm particularly interested in using authentic, relevant materials in the classroom and in finding creative ways to approach texts.

Experience

Hi! My name is Amy.

I'm a sociable, endlessly curious Cambridge graduate and CELTA-qualified English teacher with experience teaching adults and young learners of mixed nationalities and abilities, both 1:1 and in groups.

If you're looking to improve your English, whether for a general or specific purpose (e.g. preparing for an exam, giving a speech, translating letters or editing a thesis), I offer bespoke, reasonably priced lessons to fit around your schedule. I can also offer advice and resources for learning Business English, as I have 4 years experience working as a business consultant in London.

As an anthropology graduate, I'm passionate about people, languages and social engagement. I've travelled widely (especially in Latin America and Asia), love learning about different cultures and sharing knowledge!

[Work experience]

Freelance EFL tutor (Sep 2020-present):
I have been teaching freelance since passing the CELTA course. As part of the course, I planned and taught General English lessons to students over 4 weeks, working in a team as well as on my own, and to a syllabus as well as designing my own lesson materials. I taught various lesson shapes, e.g. test-teach-test and task-based lessons.

As a business consultant, I carry out in-depth investigations and due diligence, analyse political and financial risks, work with lawyers and PR teams to assist international clients. I am also responsible for training and mentoring new employees.

Intern at Barli Development Institute for Rural Women, India (Jun-Sep 2014):
I spent 3 months doing field research for my undergraduate dissertation at this grassroots NGO which provides literacy and vocational programs for adivasi women. My dissertation, focused on education and empowerment, examined the pedagogical methods used at the school through participant observation and interviews with students and teachers.

EFL teacher at Camford Royal School, China (Jun-Aug 2013):
I planned and delivered English lessons to students aged 10-17 at this private English summer school in Shijiazhuang, China. I also helped organise the end-of-term talent show.

Tour Guide at Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, Cambridge (2012-2013):
I guided school groups on tours around the museum on my summer vacations.

Volunteer at 224 North London Air Scout Group (2009-2012):
I ran activities and games at my local Scouts group with the younger Cubs and Beavers while working towards my Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award.
