Postgraduate Student in Bracknell with a Band 8.0 IELTS result (8.5 in Listening & Reading) willing to help others achieve the same success

Methodology

As a fully qualified (M.Ed) French Teacher, I can teach all ages and all levels - from Beginners through Intermediate to Advanced.

Generally, I like to strike a good balance of communication and learning language rules (i.e. grammar), with lots of authentic and contemporary materials, such as music, videos, texts, etc. For IELTS, I am focused on exam-specific exercises and skills.

My style has always been to teach in a friendly atmosphere, apt to encourage timid students and make people comfortable enough to use a foreign language. You don't need to fear of making mistakes during my lessons or feel stupid for trying and failing. You're learning - you're supposed to do all that.

Experience

In August 2018, I have scored 8.0 at IELTS (Listening 8.5; Reading 8.5; Writing 7.5; Speaking 8.0). Test Report Form available on demand.

French Teacher
Marusevec Secondary School, Croatia
January 2015 to August 2018

From 2016 on, served additionally as a Form Tutor for the new grammar school generation, superintending the educational progress and development of students, maintaining discipline, administering documentation and reports, and liaising between students, parents, and teaching staff.

Accomplishments:

• In 2016, facilitated rehearsals and performance of a song in French by a senior class at the 2016 graduation ceremony.
• In 2017, launched a French club offering language and culture courses to students outside the grammar school program.
• The grammar school form I had tutored from 2016 to 2018 has experienced significant academic and behavioural growth - from form average of 3.35 GPA, 4 exam retakes and 8 disciplinary notes to 3.9 GPA, and no exam retakes nor disciplinary notes.
