However, many people may want to learn for pleasure or particular non-academically driven reasons, therefore I am extremely flexible and adapt my teaching to each individual's needs and interests.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I usually teach through Skype or iChat.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I very much enjoy teaching because each student is a different individual and it always requires a fresh approach to tailor lessons to their needs. Seeing them progress and develop a passion for what they are learning, whether it be a language, music or anything else is extremely gratifying. Many students have been put off by teaching methods used in schools or other institutions, so I always make sure that I teach in a fresh and exciting way. I love using new technology to teach as long as it is efficient and meets the student's needs.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have been teaching privately for 3 years.
In 2009 I led workshops combining French, Music and Media in an international youth camp in Italy.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
