I am an enthusiastic and dedicated tutor and I have been a teacher of languages for 12 years but started private tutoring 8 years ago. I now tutor full time and also work for three well-known distance learning schools. I can offer a variety of languages to teach at most levels including adult learners and exam tuition. As a tutor all lessons are tailored to the individual needs of the learner. We look at all aspects of the target language. I am very proud of all my students and I am very pleased with the progress they have made over the years.
How would you describe your teaching style?
I always ensure that lessons are tailored to the needs of each student. Everyone has a different way of learning. We look at all areas of the language and I can prepare my students for exams and also for holidays! I use a variety of teaching resources including websites, apps and also useful books. For exam students we also use games to help develop the language learning and I also produce vocabulary quizzes for all students. I have a calm approach to teaching which brings out confidence on learners which is very rewarding to see.
What qualifications do you have?
I have a PGCE in Modern Languages from the University of York (2004), QTS (2005) and BA Hons Modern Language from the University of Hull (2002)
Tell us about your experience...
I completed my PGCE at the University of York in 2004 and my teaching placements took place in Scarborough and Richmond in North Yorkshire. I then taught for 8 years at a school near Wakefield which was 'A Specialist Language College' where I created Italian courses for the school and was head of Vocational Languages. I now tutor full time after having children and I work for three distance learning schools, teaching students all over the world. I also tutor privately and even teach students in India. I have been very lucky to have had so many opportunities.
What locations do you tutor in?
I tutor online but also at my home in Wakefield where I have resources available and learning facilities.
What is your personal message to students?
Languages are fun to learn and the sky is the limit with a new language. I am always available as your tutor to answer any questions however small. Start your language learning journey now.
