About the lesson
I am an Irish student studying my degree in MA French-German at the University of Aberdeen. I’m a native English speaker and a qualified teacher of English as a foreign language. I provide tutoring of English as a foreign language to all levels (A1-C2) and ages, and also preparation for the spoken part of EFL exams, including CAE, Trinity and IELTS.
My focus and experience is largely in oral expression of the English language, oral comprehension, pronunciation/accent and the furthering the student’s ability to express themselves fluently in English.

This year I completed a 15 week TEFL internship in Madrid, where I achieved my TEFL advanced certificate with distinction. This included 500 hours of teaching practise, a 140 hours online TEFL theory course and six case studies as assignments.
The teaching practise consisted of taking one-to-one classes with Spanish adults. I taught general English courses from A1 – C2 level and also exam preparation classes (focusing on spoken part of exam and correction of written part). I prepared students for the following exams: Trinity, CAE, FCE, PET, IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC and APTIS. I also carried out level tests and needs analysis. During General English classes I focused on use of English (lexis and grammar) and error correction (phonology, lexis, grammar, spelling and syntax).
I also have experience of teaching English as a foreign language to young learners, as during the summer of 2016 I taught in a summer school in Romania. This consisted of preparing and delivering lessons for an average class size of 28 students. I took classes of beginners (7-11 year olds), intermediate (11-13 year olds) and advanced (13-15 year olds) students.
