I would base my work and topics on the material provided by the student from school and on the examining board's curriculum. From experience I know that some teachers like focusing on certain topics to prepare them more for the exam and ignore certain things on the specification and I could fill the gaps and explore the diverse topics.
I focus on endorsing a positive fear free approach to language learning. I strive to make the student achieve their desired result by establishing which language areas they struggle with. This is counterbalanced by positive affirmation continually of the student's strength.
My teaching is based upon what the student knows and doesn’t know. From learning vocabulary in a fun and engaging way, to learning grammar.
Even if it can be argued that methodology should change depending on group sizes and ages of students my approach is to maintain a fun learning environment at all time. Topics should be relevant to each individual and customised to cater for different levels and learning abilities and this is where you can find a competitive hedge over school where differentiation can sometimes be an issue.
I tailor my lessons according to the individual needs of each pupil and to the curriculum of the particular course/exam-board under which they are studying, identifying the areas in need of improvement and devising an individual strategy to combat them. Lessons for extra-curricular purposes are also available to all levels.
Hello I'm Carrie, I have a degree in French and a Master in Translation. I have also lived in France for two years and work with French markets for many years. I teach students both on an informal basis, over coffee or even Skype and I also help students prepare for exams including GCSE, A-level or DELF and DALF. (I develop a personal plan or every student depending on their needs and goals).
