- Do you have a personal message for students?
Learning a language can enrich your life in so many ways! From learning about grammar to exploring foreign films, music and literature, I aim to make each lesson as diverse as the students I teach. The beauty of tutoring is that the lesson can be sculpted to meet the needs and aspirations of each individual student.
As a keen and experienced linguist, I feel it is my duty to promote language-learning to all ages. Speaking a foreign language is an invaluable asset which builds confidence, and I believe the best way to nurture improvement is through private tuition.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have two years' experience of teaching and tutoring English as a foreign language to all ages and levels.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have an enhanced CRB certificate.
- Where and with whom did you train?
I received my degree from Sheffield University. As part of my degree I studied at the University of Rennes 2 in France, the University of Athens in Greece and the Benedict School in Russia. It was at the Benedict School in Saint Petersburg that I gained my TEFL qualification.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
I'm currently tutoring a French student at an English university, who needs guidance with her MA dissertation and pronunciation in spoken English.
