Qualified TEFL post-graduate student in Leeds with international teaching experience available for English tutoring.

Methodology

I aim to provide an inclusive method of English language tutoring encouraging students to engage with material relevant to their lives. After assessing the tastes and goals of the individual I structure my lessons to first introduce vocabulary with pronunciation reinforcement and then move on to using the new vocabulary within sentence structures. Towards the end of the lesson I introduce writing exercises, relevant to the material covered.

Experience

I am a qualified TEFL teacher and have taught at an English language training centre in Suzhou, China for a year. I delivered lessons to classes of children ranging in age from 3-14 years old and also to adults on a one-to-one basis. I was promoted to assistant head teacher, where my duties included quality checking the teaching standards across the organisation.
