I am an enthusiastic second year at University, with little experience working with children- but a big love for both teaching and the languages I've grown up with.
Growing up with a dyslexic younger sister, I have learnt patience and different approaches to teaching, and I have the belief that languages should be experienced rather than just 'taught'- games, literature, and media often ease the transition into a new language, and make the experience of learning it a lot more enjoyable.
My lessons could include: grammar content, vocabulary, writing exercises to improve both your grammar and vocabulary, reading comprehension and conversation, as well as activities and watching films, listening to music... Similarly, I am completely open to requests.
I am a native born Spanish speaker, fluent in both Spanish and French after spending twelve years at a French school- I ended up taking my GCSES and A-Levels in an English boarding school, and have thus experienced two very different education systems.
I took both French and Spanish GCSE, and would gladly offer help to those going through them now, though I would also love to take on the challenge of teaching somebody who's never been exposed to the either language before.
I am a second year, Linguistics student with an enormous passion for Literature, and would also gladly help with the analysing of texts and with school work.
