I really enjoy teaching languages because it's easy to create games and if you have fun, it will be easier to learn! I am a good listener so I will always pay attention to your specific needs. Culture, grammar or prononciation, for beginners or advanced,to prepare an exam, just tell me what you need and want!
I worked for 3 years as a teacher in primary and secondary schools. I have also been a french teacher for migrants in France. Before that I used to be a play worker, a drama teacher or a teaching assistant.
I am based in Edinburgh.
I am happy to propose a low price because I think that life already costs too much and money shouldn't be an issue to improve or learn something.

2016-17 | Higher educational institution for Calandreta schools, Montpellier - Education in Institutional pedagogy
“Calandreta Schools are not just bilingual schools: they are trilingual. There, you speak French and Occitan but also and mostly, you speak the language of the human being. If you ignore it, you fail to acknowledge the individuality of the child, and in doing so you don’t teach them how to express themselves” René Laffitte
This education taught me the fundamentals of pedagogy and the essential skills for executing the teaching-learning process by using an active and institutional pedagogy in preschool and primary school. It provided me with practical experience in the classroom, as well as with planning and creating lesson plans. I learnt how to teach more effectively and developed innovative approaches to instructional practices and lesson planning.
