I make things clear & help my students really grasp what is eluding them, & also get them talking by providing effective strategies that enable them to lose their inhibitions and talk spontaneously, without the worry of making mistakes getting in the way of language production. To achieve these aims I adapt to the needs of each student, using various teaching methods I am trained & experienced in, such as: the Narrative Method, the Direct Method & the Communicative Method, amongst others. I work with my students in all areas, especially encouraging & enabling pronunciation skills from the beginning. I can also help in facilitating optimum comprehension of complex texts and tape scripts. I work with general texts, as well as those related to medicine, finance, interior design, hairdressing & beauty, textiles & fashion. I have always kept up with innovation and advances in my profession, continuously striving to improve my credentials, undertaking courses & workshops, & attending seminars conferences at specialist institutions, including: The British Council, The Institute of North American Studies, International House, La Escuela Oficial de Idiomas, The University of Barcelona, Instituto Cervantes, Alliance Française, as well as various publishing houses of Language Teaching.
I am a native English speaker with over 25 years` experience teaching languages to adults, teens & young learners. I hold a diploma in French from the University of Lyon and a diploma in Spanish Studies from the University of Barcelona, as well as CELTA from Cambridge University. I teach French & Spanish & ESOL. I have lived & studied in France & Spain & am completely fluent in French & Spanish, to C2 level. I also teach Catalan to adults, up to level B2. I worked for 2 years as a teaching assistant in a Bi-Lingual primary & secondary school in Spain & have 27 years' experience as an ESOL Teacher, as well as a French & Spanish tutor.
