I am an undergraduate languages student with experience with language tutoring and conversational learning.

Methodology

My teaching methodology is based on conversation. I encourage students to participate in learning through speaking in their target language as much as possible and actively learn from errors. I learned Spanish predominantly through conversation with my teacher, and engaging with mistakes and grammatical errors and correcting them, and I believe that this is the most effective and authentic method of language learning.

Experience

I have a background in the academic study of Spanish language, English literature and English language. At university I study BA Politics and Modern Languages so I am well versed in a variety of subject areas. I strive to create a welcoming and comfortable environment to allow students to learn and expand their vocabulary.

Tutoring for GCSE Language students April 2017- June 2017. I thoroughly enjoyed helping some enthusiastic Year 10 students to achieve their academic goals, through not only helping them with difficult topics, but also giving them ideas and inspiration of how to revise and learn outside of lessons.

Working as a summer nanny. June-August 2019. I spent over a month dedicated to providing care and safety to two young girls in the after school period, whilst their parents worked, in the summer term of the academic year. Despite working alone, this job taught me the importance of communication and concentration in order to ensure both the happiness and safety of the children I was responsible for.

Working within a University-based social enterprise; Biosmart September 2019 - present. I am working within a small team of students to run a small business which delivers furnaces to various communities in Kenya, Zanzibar and Pakistan which allows them to produce and sell biochar -an alternative to fossil fuel. I undergo weekly tasks, both in office and remotely, to help the people we have on the ground to run the business and attend weekly business meetings to learn more about our initiative and feedback/receive tasks.

Student Ambassador at the University of Exeter. January 2020 - present. This role involves taking large groups on tours of the university campus, leading academic and informative talks & presentations, along with carrying out virtual work within online forums and online events.

Successes and Achievements:

I have achieved the position Head Girl of my school, which has given me many new responsibilities, including speaking at various school events, organising charity events within school and much more.

2014-2016- I am the co-captain of the Senior Netball Team at Saint Cecilia’s and we have been successful in our borough netball tournaments, two years running.

I have completed my Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award, which consisted of camping in Surrey for one night and walking 24 kilometres over two days.

I have achieved high grades through the secondary school public examination programme, continuing this academic success throughout my undergraduate studies.

2020 - I have completed the University run Challenges Online programme, in which I took part in workshops to learn about remote and online working (particularly the use of Microsoft Teams) and used this learning to create a virtual presentation on an area of choice, being the sustainability of our food system. This presentation was sent on to our local Exeter MP (Ben Bradshaw) who has taken our compiled research from the presentation into the House of Commons.

Holly is incredibly intelligent and I have known her now for almost three years. She is brilliant with children and young adults and is always incredibly personable, approachable and kind. She is an excellent teacher and her ability to relax students and enable them to engage with her teaching is impressive. I would not hesitate to recommend Holly for any Spanish tuition. Her ability and flare for the language is self-evident but her character and ability to interact with students is what makes her such a great teacher. Please meet holly and see for yourself why she is such a wonderful tutor!
