I pride myself on my enthusiasm, dedication and patience and cater lessons to the students' need. I have worked with students of all different levels and adapt my lessons accordingly. I always aim to make lessons engaging and varied, being lucky to have picked up lots of useful techniques from the teachers I work with every day in my current job.
I graduated with a French and German degree in 2008 and have worked in education ever since. I have worked as a teaching assistant, based mainly in language lessons, at a local secondary school for the past seven years and there I have also stepped into the role of a languages teacher on many occasions. I absolutely love 1:1 work, I used to have weekly lessons with an EAL pupil, helping him with his English and this used to be one of my favourite, most rewarding parts of the week. I also spent 8 months as an English assistant in a French Secondary School where I made lots of foreign friends, who, years later, still often ask for my help with their English and in return, I enjoy practising my languages with them.
Polly has excellent knowledge of English vocabulary and idioms. Being a native doesn’t always mean having an accurate grammar which she has! She is always happy to help and have students understand English. She is keen on sharing her language skills so students improve theirs with motivational course material.
Polly has worked exceptionally well with students in the past who, as a result, achieved a grade that was above their predicted grade. I have no hesitation in recommending Polly for the post of personal tutor.
Polly is a very kind and trustworthy person. She is always willed to help and doesn’t stop explaining until the issue is understood! Furthermore, it doesn’t matter at which time her help is needed, she will always be there and do her very best.
