How would you describe your teaching style?
In my classroom I aim to build a strong rapport with my students, build their confidence in speaking English and break down barriers of fear. I am a strong believer that we all learn from mistakes and see errors as a positive learning curve. Learning English should be a fun and interactive experience. As you can probably tell, I am an optimist in life and I intend to make my lessons a positive and colourful learning experience for students of all ages.
What qualifications do you have?
BA honours History, Politics, Education (The University of Stirling) Certificate in Teaching Young Learners and Teenagers (CYLT Cambridge University) Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL Scotland) Understanding Autism (The University of Kent)
Tell us about your experience...
Since graduating from University in 2012 I have been teaching English in schools and colleges across Europe and the UK. I have experience working with a variety of ages, levels, cultures and curriculums. Recently, after qualifying as a young learner's specialist and an online teacher, I decided to turn my passion for tutoring into a career. I now spend my days tutoring by combining online lessons and face to face lessons rather than spending all of my time in a school classroom.
What locations do you tutor in?
Central Scotland and online.
